I'm right now tooling around in iTunes, click on my 'Purchased Music' playlist, and see that I have purchased 210 tracks, including two albums! (Mozart's Requeim and the 'De-Lovely' Soundtrack). Furthermore, I have $40 of credit remaining on iTMS. How much has everyone else purchased?

i only have like MAYBE between 40-60, because i accidentally deleted the playlist about a month ago and lost track, plus i don't have my own credit card (only 15) So i do a lot of limewire

234. I think I also have almost all of the free music, so 95-100 of those are the freebies, and the other 135-140 are mine? That's since January of last year. And I think I've only bought a handful of CDs in that time, OTOH. :)

There isn't any easy way to tell how many are iTunes promos and how many you paid for, is there?

134 since converting in June. I see many of you get the free songs each week. I have never really looked to see what kind of music they offer for free (usually jump around in iMix lists and album links). Are the free offerings worth getting? I know it depends on personal taste but, in general, would anyone recommend checking them out each week?

For me, personally, about two-thirds of them are not interesting. But there are a few that I really like, and there's one in my top ten by playcount list! And in the thread about top tens, other people also listed free songs in their list. It all depends on your tastes though. They recently added a feature where all the free songs appear in the lower right of the home iTMS page, so they're easier to find than they used to be.

Who knows? You can listen to previews of them, just like songs you purchase. Download some, and maybe you'll like them. Otherwise delete them.

I've amassed over 350 tracks from the iTMS. Actually, I haven't paid for a single one of them. I have all of the free downloads starting from their first offerings to the latest; some of the music was bought using gift cards; some of the music bought using Pepsi-product caps; some of the music bought using Apple's scratch cards handed out at special events and whatnot; and I have all of the free albums that were offered off-the-cuff.

I'd say that I'm doing rather without paying a cent for that much music.

btw just a tip.. if you want to backup those songs you have purchased from itms.. you can create a smart playlist that grabs all the protected files..

Kind -> Contains -> "Protected"

then i just burn that playlist as a data cd for backup purposes.

Great tip. Will do now (thought I have 4 copies on various hard-drives, not to mention the iPod). Thanks.

228, this includes a few free songs, a few albums and various other tracks purchased at the spur of the moment. Almost forgot the one free song from Ben and Jerry's for promising to vote in the last presidential election.

Off to make another redundant backup.
