any hardware device, organize their music using any music management
application, and burn songs to CDs.

Most songs are priced from 89 cents to 99 cents, with more than 1
million of the 2 million songs priced at 89 cents. The top 100
best-selling songs are 89 cents, unless marked otherwise. Most albums
