    What do you think of this idea for the Apple Music Store?

    Many current, popular TV stores play songs either in the background or at full volume for dramatic effect, but, unlike a movie, you can't watch the credits to find the song name and artist. Wouldn't it be cool if the Music Store developed pages around these shows and organized them by specific episodes so viewers could buy the songs they like? Seems like the setup would easily tie into Apple's existing database of music but give the company a new way of marketing the catalogue to users.

    Tried to submit the idea to Apple directly, but their Web site discourages these kind of submissions for legal reasons. Don't want any compensation other than seeing the idea be implemented -- if it's a good one.

    Anyone like the idea, too?:)

    It's a cool idea - some shows have really great music. I just don't know if it would be feasible for Apple to do it.

    Rather than having Apple set this up through iTMS (BTW, this is a great idea), the individual companies advertising should put the ads on their websites.

    Case in point. The new Gap ads with their new fall clothing line. There's an Earth, Wind and Fire song that they play that I really liked. So I go to and they have the commercial on their website. It lists the credits and all.

    A trip to iTMS and 99 cents later, I have the song.
