For more recent free tunes, see the Free Tunes 2007 thread.

Here, from most recent to least recent, is a list of tunes in the U.S. iTunes Music Store that were free downloads in 2006. Bold marks tunes that appear to be free indefinitely. Apple generally issues new free music on Tuesdays, when I check for it and update this list. Please post to this thread if you spot other free tunes. Links to the newest free iTunes can usually be found in the bottom left corner of the iTMS home page. When a song is newly offered, the last link on the line below works best. For songs from past weeks or months, the first link is typically better. For abbreviations used and other sources of free tunes, see post below.

Total for 2006: 106 tunes, 7 hours, 411.9MB

Nice. Thanks again for the updates Dr. Q. Nice to see Apple putting out some new free stuff after the holidays last week. D/l'ing on my laptop right now.

Edit: Argh... says it's unavailable right now. Must be updating or something. Or my computer just sucks.

Edit 2: Ok, it works now. Hayley Westenra sounds really good. Highly recommended.

Here is a website that has free downloads during the Holiday by a promoter named Andy Cirzan who spends a lot of his free time scouring record stores, thrift shops and flea markets for odd and obscure Christmas music.

http://www.soundopinions.com/christmas/index.html

Also, 10 + 100 Creative Commons Christmas Songs. Uwe Hermann says, “Here are 111 songs which are all explicitly released under a Creative Commons license. There's a great variety in style, mood, and genre of the songs: some traditional, some contemporary, some happy, some sad, and some just plain funny.”

http://www.hermann-uwe.de/blog/10-100-creative-commons-christmas-songs (sorry, used to know how to get the link in a single word but forgot)

(haven't tried these yet)

The iTMS in France also has free downloads. For those of you that cannot read French, it's the one labeled Telechargement Gratuit - Single de la Semaine (that means Free Download - Single of the Week). I live in the US and don't have a French credit card, so I cannot get these songs, but they should be added to the list, as France is the only non-English-speaking country with free downloads in its iTMS.

EDIT: If someone would please gift me a free song from iTMS Canada or iTMS France (you need a valid credit card in that country), I would maintain the free download lists for those iTMSs. Actually, I'd also like to have UK and Australia accounts as well. PM me for my e-mail.

Free foreign songs?

Is there a way to get the free downloads from ITSs for countries where you don’t have a billing address? Preferably with minimal hoop-jumping.

Have someone with a valid credit card in that country gift you the week's free song, and use it to make a new account.

Update: that code is dead. I don’t think it has anything to do with country; once redeemed anywhere, it’s dead.

Yep, that code's dead. Someone please gift the free song from Canada, UK, Australia, or France (those are the all the ones with free songs other than the US) to betbest1 AT hotmail DOT com.

after you had set up a new account, could you then gift a free song to someone else so that they could make a new account and so on . . .?

Update: that code is dead. I don’t think it has anything to do with country; once redeemed anywhere, it’s dead.
The code is US only, that meams you cannot redeem it in other countries.
For example, if you redeem it in UK, the system will treat it as a valid code and ask you to enter your account or create one. After entering or creating it will say this code is US only and you cannot redeem it.
So, you can use this way to create accounts.

But now, the code is dead (someone has redeem it in US store). You cannot redeem it in any store.

Thanks, works like a charm. French Free iTunes list will begin soon. I'll also do Canada unless someone else volunteers. BTW, what eight songs do they choose from for that promotion?
