Google Play: Walk Off The Earth “Sing It All Away” Album Now 99 Cents

Posted by on July 1, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Google Play: Walk Off The Earth “Sing It All Away” Album Now 99 Cents

We have seen a lot of great music from Google Play lately, but this is the first time I have seen a Canadian band’s album at a steal of a price. Check out the band Walk Off The Earth’s album Sing It All The Way. This album is normally $9.99, but you can grab it right now for only 99 cents at Google Play.

At first, I was excited to check out this band’s music because it is a Canadian band. Not only do I love supporting music that is regional, it also means I have a much better chance of seeing them live in concert! In all seriousness, when I started clicking around on the tracks of the album, I realized I knew the song Rule The World from the either the radio or one of my free streaming programs and the song is awesome! If you need a peppy and empowering song, this is it. While I can sing along to this song on the radio or while I am working out, I also think I would turn on this song when I am trying to focus or motivate myself. This song has a peppy undertone that reminds me of bands such as Foster and The People or Florence and The Machine

Itunes is selling this album for $9.99 and is also selling each individual track for $1.29. You are much better off just purchasing the entire album on Google Play.

Reviews are looking amazing on Google play for this album. Many people are digging this band’s sound. Here is one happy music listener.

Stuck in my head seriously blown away by this album. Great work. Songs will be stuck in my head for a long time. Cheers

Another happy listener mentions that this band does some awesome covers. You can listen to their covers yourself on YouTube, such as this peppy cover of Grenade by Bruno Mars. They are quite fantastic!

If you are in Brampton Ontario, this fantastic band is performing for Canada Day free at Ching Park. They will be headlining at 8:30 pm, and there are many free activities scheduled weather permitting. There is also one other chance to pick up tickets to catch them in concert in September in BC before they head out for a tour across Europe. Fans are saying this band is even better in concert and it seems like they do a great show.  I would try to catch them live if I lived close enough, I love their sound. If you are like me and too far away, make sure to pick up the album so you can dance to it in your own backyard instead. Check out this music video the band made with the song Rule the World.

Google Play: Just The Hits 19 Track Album Only 99 Cents!

Posted by on June 25, 2015 at 8:27 AM

Google Play: Just The Hits 19 Track Album Only 99 Cents!

Embrace some of the best songs of last year by taking them with you on your own device. Right now Google Play is offering the album Just The Hits for only 99¢! This album is valued at $24.51, and will make a great soundtrack to listen to all summer.

While I stream music most of the time and it is tailored to my personal music tastes, it is hard to escape some of the top hits of the past year. I turn on pop music quite a bit when I am feeling fun and breezy, or want to lift my mood. This album is the perfect dependable playlist of music that will also please a crowd, a great choice for your next backyard gathering or beach trip.

This album includes 19 total songs, all from different artists. These tracks are selling for $1.29 per track. A few tracks are only sold as part of their original album but are still available to purchase individually from the original album. Here is a sampling of some of the great music you will find on this album.

  • Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars
  • Take Me to Church by Hozier
  • Lips Are Movin by Meghan Trainor
  • Don’t by Ed Sheeran
  • Time of Our Lives by Pitbull & Ne-Yo
  • Jealous (Remix) by Nick Jonas feat. Tinashe
  • Outside by Calvin Harris feat. Ellie Goulding
  • Heartbeat Song by Kelly Clarkson

I headed over to iTunes to price compare. Many of these songs are available for $1.29 if you were to purchase them individually. If you were to purchase this entire album you will spend $9.99. This is a way better deal on Google Play.

I myself find myself always stopping to listen to Take Me To Church by Hozier. This artist is fairly new on the scene. Take Me to Church is his breakout song that is soaring on charts in multiple countries. The song stems from his frustration with the Catholic Church and their teachings on love and sexuality. His music video on You Tube went viral and received 200,000 views in two weeks. The topic of this song is not as perky as some of the other pop music available on this album, but it is an awesome song. The lyrics in this song are thought provoking if you listen a little deeper and hauntingly beautiful if you only listen passively.

If you are looking for another tune that is catchy and upbeat with a lighter feel, do not miss Budapest by George Ezra hanging out towards the bottom of the list. This song is in part a love song, as Ezra asks the love in his life to move on to the next step with him. Whether that next step is dating or something more serious, this catchy song is easy to crone along to in the car.

There are many other great songs on this list. Google Play does let you sample on the left side of each song. I always find that handy when I cannot remember if I know a song or not. This album is only available for the week, but Google has not been forthcoming when exactly the deal is up. Grab these songs now. This is a serious deal for these great tunes!

Google Play: Royal Blood Self-Titled Album only 99¢

Posted by on June 9, 2015 at 7:37 PM

Google Play: Royal Blood Self Titled Album only 99¢

The Google Play store has a new album for only 99¢ this week. Pick up Royal Blood’s self-titled album Royal Blood for only 99¢.

I like these 99¢ album deals as we do not often have good deals on music since music went digital. iTunes stopped giving away a free song each week and even cancelled their Christmas 12 Days giveaway. Since then, iTunes has had very few sales worth noting.

In steps Google Play. They have weekly 99¢ albums for some popular and some new artists. This is a great way to get your favourites or pick up a new artist and try them out. They also have a small section of free music that is worth frequenting often for updated titles. iTunes -1, Google Play +1!

The Royal Blood album costs $7.99 on iTunes Canada. Thus, you are saving $7 when purchasing via the Google Play store. The album has 10 songs including their most popular: Figure it Out. At this price, you are paying less than 10 cents per song.

I assume this is the full ‘explicit’ copy but Google Play does not specify. There is a non-explicit version available on iTunes, so i am curious which version is being sold by Google.

The reviews are pretty good. One reviewer said:

Finally. Real rock. It’s been a while since we’ve had a new rock band of this quality. Reminds me of queens of the stone age and the white stripes. These guys are going to be huge.

I still find that the band tends towards pop rock, but I only listened to a couple songs. Those might just have been anomalies. Of course, rock is so varied (always has been) that these boys certainly classify. Another reviewer said:

Finally! So amazing to hear new ‘alt-rock’ music that truly focuses on the rock part! Great bassist/drummer duo outta England. Can’t wait to catch them live in Mpls this month.

Most the rockers I like are UK based: I think England does rock better (Pink Floyd, Beatles, etc!). This is a generous price for their new album so pick it up now! I am not sure exactly when the Google Play ‘week’ starts, thus I am not sure when this deal expires.

Google Play: Meghan Trainor’s Album Title Only 99¢

Posted by on June 8, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Google Play: Meghan Trainors Album Title Only 99¢

I love music and Meghan Trainor has caught my ear. The first song I heard of hers was “All About that Bass” – I was linked to the music video on YouTube by a friend. The song is super catchy and I loved the video too. Google Play has a special promotion on right now. Purchase the entire ‘Title’ album for just 99¢!

This album has 15 songs, all of which retail for $1.29 individually. I assess from iTunes that the album being offered from Google Play is indeed the ‘deluxe’ album as the deluxe album comes with 15 songs and the normal album has 11 songs. You can also double-check this on Wikipedia. I price compared with iTunes where the deluxe album retails for $12.99. To purchase each song separately, you would pay $1.29 as well. You are saving at least $12 with this deal.

Essentially, you receive 15 songs for the price of less than one song. WOW.

I recently saw Meghan Trainor perform live at The Voice final. She performed “Dear Future Husband” in front of a crowded audience and the contestants. While the song didn’t strike me at first, since I have listened to it a few more times.

I like how Meghan’s songs are often a middle-finger up to current society trends and stereotyping. She really battles against fat-shaming and the way mothers raise their daughters to base their value on appearance. However, I think she can go a bit far. Sometimes she starts ‘shaming the other’ as a way to promote the underdog. I am not for that method, but I understand why she does it. The power is in the lyrics. She does this in her Future Husband song as well, where she really asserts female rights but somewhat tramples upon male ones at the same time.

This is a fantastic deal, and you really should purchase it before it disappears. I have no idea how long this deal will last. Most these deals, if experience says anything, only last for a week at most. If you want a preview of the album to see if you like Meghan, check out this song:

Posted by on May 28, 2015 at 9:00 AM

Kings of Leon The Collection Box Only $24.99 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada is having some super deals on a few rock music boxed sets. I spotted the Kings of Leon set for only $24.99. This item qualifies for free super saver shipping with a minimum purchase of $25.

Kings of Leon is a favourite among the rock and pop hits. The songs get stuck in your head, and you find yourself singing along for weeks at a time. Put some tunes to your humming with this awesome boxed set.

This set includes five CDs and one DVD. Each CD includes extra tracks that are not previously released on CD. Included are the following albums:

  • Youth and Young Manhood
  • Aha Shake Heartbreak
  • Because Of The Times
  • Only By The Night
  • Come Around Sundown

You will also receive a DVD that features the Kings of Leon’s performance in London, England 2009. You will be able to have this awesome concert experience right from your own home.

When you start price matching this box set across the web, you really start seeing the savings. Over at Walmart.ca, this boxed set costs $62.97. I also found this CD boxed set at Best Buy Canada for $62.99. Best Buy will let you sample some of the tracks from your browser, so click on over for a full preview of this album.

Reviews on Amazon are praising this album for the fantastic music. Several reviewers talk about how they listen to these albums multiple times, and how some of the songs are catchy right away and other songs you find yourself hooked a week later. This band also experiments with their sound, and listeners love it.

If you are looking for other cool music to fill out your cart, Amazon.ca has discounted a few other boxed CD sets today. Bruce Springsteen fans will be happy to see the Born To Run 30th Anniversary 3 disc set on sale for only $26.99. This same set at Walmart.ca will cost you $64.97, so you are saving quite a bit. This set is a re-mastered version of Springsteen’s earlier work including four hours of footage of their London show. Featured songs include “Thunder Road,” “Kitty’s Back,” and a fantastic rendition of “Saint in the City.”

I also like the Best of My Lives Boxed Set by Billy Joel selling today for $26.99. Pick this same set up at Best Buy.ca and you will drop $72.99. This is a five disc set including four CDs chock full of classic hits and a DVD that showcases five hours of music, previously unreleased tunes and even a few covers. You want to check out this album.

If you need a filler for free shipping on the Kings of Leon album, check out the Jurassic Dinosaurs Sticker Activity Book. This fun sticker book is only $2. This would be a great little project for the kids, dad or me! I have another sticker book made by this same company, and they are fun little books.

These fab music sales are only good today, so snap up your favourites now. This is a great potential Father’s Day gift. Both my husband and my dad would find music they enjoyed among these boxed sets.

Spotify: 3 Months Premium only 99¢ (Worth $29.97)

Posted by on May 9, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Spotify: 3 Months Premium only 99¢ (Worth $29.97)

Spotify hosts millions of music tracks that you can stream on your computer, tablet, phone, and more. While Spotify basic is free, Spotify premium usually costs $9.99 per month. Right now, Spotify is offering three months of its premium service for just 99¢, which works out to 33¢ per month. You save $29.97 over three months.

Let us talk differences. There is a basic Spotify program you can use free of charge. That program gives you access to millions of music tracks for free. Create your own radio station, adopt the playlists of celebrities or friends, or shuffle play any artist or playlist. The basic Spotify has ads and only allows you to skip six times per hour on your mobile. In addition, you cannot download anything: you must be constantly online.

Spotify Premium

Spotify premium is an entirely different kettle of fish. You can play any music on-demand instead of using shuffled playlists or artists. You can also listen offline (download the songs) so no internet connection is needed. Premium members benefit from unlimited skips and better sound quality: 320 kbps instead of 160 kbps. On top of that, premium is ad-free and you can play Spotify on your home speakers instead of just on your mobile devices.

If you do not wish to continue with Spotify Premium after the 99¢ trial period, then you will need to cancel your membership as right before the three-months are up. If you do not, then your credit card will be automatically billed the full $9.99 for the next month. This is an introductory promotion from Spotify. Thus, anyone who has previously had a trial with Spotify or previously been subscribed to the Spotify Premium service is not eligible for this promotion.

I think this is a very interesting service. I am going to be driving a grand total of 24 hours minimum in May. That is excluding two ferry rides. Sometimes I get bored of my own music selection and want something new. Spotify Premium would allow me to download new stuff to my iPhone. Because Premium does not require an internet connection to listen, it would keep me company through the BC interior where most cell phones lose any reception and radio stations die.

I do not know when this promotion ends, so please take advantage of it sooner rather than later.

Buytopia Canada: 75% Off Portable MP3 Player – Now Just $10

Posted by on April 22, 2015 at 6:10 PM

Buytopia Canada: 75% Off Portable MP3 Player   Now Just $10

Buytopia has a fantastic deal right now: you can get a portable MP3 player with a built-in USB drive for just $10, which is a 75% reduction from its original $40 price.

You can get this handy MP3 player in the following choices of colours: red, blue or black. Earphones are pictured in Buytopia’s image of this product, which you can see above, but there is no mention as to whether these are actually included or not.

I’m sure many of you are wondering about the storage, but oddly enough, Buytopia doesn’t list the memory capacity.

If you look at a close up of this portable MP3 player on Buytopia’s site, then you will also see that it says: “MIC” on the side. This makes me think that there might be recording feature but this too isn’t mentioned in Buytopia’s description.

To add your music, you will simply need to plug the USB into your computer and transfer away. Since it is a USB drive, you might also be able to store a couple of files but you would have to try it to see.

This Buytopia deal is set to expire in 3 days from now, which according to my calculations, should be on Friday, April 24th but Buytpoia’s deals don’t always expire when they are set to. So if you are interested in this deal, first all, don’t delay as it might sell out and second of all, don’t wait until the very last day either. There are good chances that this deal will be extended past the “3 days remaining” as it happens with a lot of their deals, but you just never know!

The only downside to this offer is that shipping is $4.95 but even then, it’s a pretty awesome deal, especially since taxes are already included. Keep in mind that the way Buytopia’s site operates is that your item will ship 4-6 weeks after the deal ends on their site, so you won’t necessarily get it right away. If it does end within the next couple of days, then you can expect your order in May, but hopefully well before that of course!

Google Play Store: Free Music from Nickelback, Maroon 5, & More

Posted by on March 19, 2015 at 10:30 PM

Google Play Store: Free Music from Nickelback, Maroon 5, & More

The Google Play store has a bunch of free music you can download right now. I found a few completely free albums and a bunch of single songs just free for the taking. Hurry on over as I have no idea how long this offer with last.

I am not familiar with all these artists so I really cannot make recommendations (for most of it) on what is good or not. Music is also highly subjective, so what I like you may think is trash. Here are the albums you can download for free:

Here is a list of the individual tracks you can download for free at the Google Play Store:

As you can see, this is a lengthy list. If you are open to different music genres, then you can download 63 tracks through the above links. That is a hefty freebie when you consider that Google Play Store has a flat rate of $1.29 per song (or better price for albums).

I do not know any of the other artists or bands besides Nickelback and Maroon 5. I might experiment a bit, but I know for sure that I am downloading the Maps song by Maroon 5 and the What Are You Waiting For? song by Nickelback. Those tracks are worth my time to sign in (or sign up) for a Google Play store account. In fact, there are ridiculously good reviews for the new Maroon 5 song. This reviewer gushed:

Adam kills it! I’m not the one to listen to the newest music let alone buy the track only after listening to it only ONCE on the radio. “ain’t nothin I can do” but listen to it on repeat!

If you know some of the other bands, then please drop us a line to give your song recommendations. I love music, but we all have our expertise and certain genres that we are more familiar with than other people.

Google Play Store: 88 Billie Holiday Songs for $1.99

Posted by on March 17, 2015 at 3:49 PM

Google Play Store: 88 Billie Holiday Songs for $1.99

Google Play Store has an entire collection of Billie Holiday songs on promotion for just $1.99. Each song would regularly cost $1.29, so this is one heck of a deal.

At this price, you will pay just over 2¢ per song. Even if you just like a couple Billie Holiday songs, at this price it is worth purchasing the entire collection. Just for a little fun with math, if you purchased all 88 songs at their retail price of $1.29, then you would be spending $113.52. That is a lot of money!

Now, I know a bit of Billie Holiday but I am no means an expert. She was an American Jazz singer with quite the voice. While the recording is a bit dated, I find the music pleasant to listen to when in the mood. I generally like a little sprinkle of jazz in the evenings or around dinnertime as background music. It is sultry, relaxing, and elegant all at the same time.

Enjoy such songs as:

  • Easy Living
  • God Bless The Child
  • Solitude
  • I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues
  • Strange Fruit

I think I only have heard one or two of her songs before. However, I listened to the preview of about 10 of these songs before I started this blog post. Her music is quite enjoyable and I hope many of our Moosers like this little deal.

Strange Fruit has a bit of a story behind it. This song deals with racial hatred at a time when speaking about it, especially if you were African American, was taboo and could get you beaten or killed. As one NY Times article says:

“Strange Fruit” became a nightly ritual for Holiday, then one of her most successful records, then one of her signature songs, at least in those places where it was safe to perform. For throughout Holiday’s short life—she died in 1939 at the age of forty-four—the song existed in a kind of artistic quarantine: it could travel, but only to selected places.

It is a song that continues to be revered as it was bold for that time period and is still relevant today when racial prejudices and hatred still continue. This song is unique in her discography, and it requires a couple listens to understand.

Pick up all these songs and more for just $1.99. As the music is digital, no shipping costs either!

12-Month Xbox Music Pass Was $99 Now Only $31.41 @ Microsoft Canada TODAY Only! * Hot * (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 14, 2015 at 9:18 AM

12 Month Xbox Music Pass Was $99 Now Only $31.41 @ Microsoft Canada TODAY Only! * Hot * (EXPIRED)

Here’s a deal which I think will be relevant for a few of you, specifically those who use Xbox and the Windows app store on its various devices. The “Xbox Music” audio service usually costs $99 for a year’s subscription. But right now from the Microsoft Store online, you can grab the 12 month pass for only $31.41!

Here’s a quick description of what you are getting with the 12-Month Xbox Music Pass:

Get a whole year of ad-free music and access to 30 million songs from one of the largest digital music catalogs on the planet.

Obviously there are a variety of other music services available for you to choose from, but this is actually a super-hot price for getting this service!

For me, I usually use Spotify to stream music on my various devices, including my desktop PC and my iPad. I recently purchased a Microsoft Surface Pro and had a search for Spotify on the app store, only to find that the app wasn’t available there! I did see that Xbox Music was an option on the Surface Pro, but I was a little daunted because of the subscription cost. But for only $31 for the entire year, I’m going to grab this deal as soon as I’ve finished writing this post!

So, I don’t yet have the service and cannot give it a personal review for you guys, but I had a google to see what other people thought of the Xbox Music service instead. Moneysense has a comparison of some of the various services, comparing costs and what you are getting. Their view on Xbox Music is that it is great for gamers to stream some tunes while they are gaming.

Google Play Store: 99¢ Albums – Sam Smith, Drake, & Beck

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 1:27 PM

Google Play Store: 99¢ Albums   Sam Smith, Drake, & Beck

Google Play Store has discounted three albums from popular artists to only 99¢ each! Given that a single song usually retails for $1.29, this is a hot deal.

The three sale albums are as follows:

Sam Smith – In The Lonely Hour (Google Play Exclusive Deluxe Edition)

I highly recommend this album. Sadly, I just bought three songs from this album on iTunes, paying well over what the entire album would cost on Google. The album includes 15 and earns an overall rating of 4.7/5 on Google Play. My favourite songs are Stay With Me, I’m Not the Only One, and Like I Can. The album has a run time around 50 minutes.

Drake – Nothing Was The Same

This album comes with 13 songs for a total run time of just under one hour. Nothing Was The Same ranks a solid 4.5/5 on the Google rating scale. The album is explicit (watch out little ears) but appears to be well loved. I know nothing about the artist Drake, so if you do please comment.

Beck – Morning Phase

This is another artist I am not terribly familiar with. However, for 99¢ you are receiving 13 songs for a run time of approximately 47 minutes. This album was just released a year ago, so still fairly new. Morning Phase rates 4.3/5 stars, but with less than 800 reviews.

Now, make sure that you get directed to the Google Play store for Canada. These albums are full price at the US store right now. I found that Sam Smith’s album (only one I am personally interested in) retails for $10.49 US. I also price compared these digital albums to iTunes. Here is what you would expect to pay for each album currently on iTunes:

  • In The Lonely Hour – $7.99
  • Nothing Was the Same – $6.99 (E)
  • Morning Phase – $6.99

The Nothing Was the Same album was hard to price compare, as there are four different versions on iTunes! But I picked the one that matched the one on Google closest. There is a ‘clean’ version of this album but that is not the one being sold for 99¢ on the Google Play Store.

If you need a little inspiration, I have attached a YouTube video of Sam Smith singing Like I Can:

Six Free Songs from Brit Awards @ Google Play

Posted by on March 1, 2015 at 4:05 PM

Six Free Songs from Brit Awards @ Google Play

Google Play is giving out six free songs in celebration of the Brit Awards. For those of you not familiar, the Brit Awards are the British equivalent of the American Grammy Awards.

I am very pleased with this giveaway as the songs are not from obscure artists that no one has ever heard about these days. Rather, you are getting popular songs from major artists. All of these songs were recorded live at the BRITs.

Here is the list of songs you can download for free:

  • Sam Smith – Lay Me Down
  • Ed Sheeran – Bloodstream
  • George Ezra – Budapest
  • Paloma Faith – Only Love Can Hurt Like This
  • Royal Blood – Figure It Out
  • Take That – Let In The Sun

I only know the first two artists in the list. For me, this is such fortunate timing. While I was introduced to Sam Smith a bit ago, I only found out that he was the artist behind a few of my currently favourite songs. I will certainly be downloading Lay Me Down, as it is not a song I currently have. Sam Smith’s voice is amazing and I love the heart and soul he pours into his music.

Ed Sheeran only came onto my radar a month ago. A friend of mine, who loves music as much as I do, was sending me song suggestions and I was sending him suggestions too. In one way, we were playing “do you know this band” and in another, we were genuinely interested in introducing each other to new music. Ed Sheeran was a first for me as Royal Wood was a first for my friend.

This is a great list of songs, though I cannot vouch for the other artists. I suggest trying them all because free music is great. It does not cost you a cent and you can always delete the file if you do not like the song.

Ticketmaster Coupon Code: 2 for 1 Tickets

Ticketmaster Coupon Code: 2 for 1 Tickets

Ticketmaster has a special Valentine’s Day coupon code to score two tickets for the price of one! There are over 50 shows just in Canada to choose from so get your tickets now – they will probably sell out fast.

Click here to buy 2 for 1 tickets @ Ticketmaster Canada now

  • Coupon Code: TMN241
  • Discount: 2 tickets for the price of 1
  • Expiry: Unknown

There are some real gems here. Nickelback is on tour with stops in Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, and Vancouver. I was just looking at tickets for the Nickelback: No Fixed Address Tour when it hits Rogers Arena in Vancouver. I actually enjoy Nickelback, especially their early stuff. Chad has an amazing voice and their talent is obvious from the success they continue to have. I know haters are going to hate (and I have seen a lot of Canadian hate for our own success stories), but I am a lover of Nickelback.

Do you have a little taste for nostalgia? There are plenty of bands I know and love that were popular in my father’s younger years. ZZ Top is coming to Hamilton and Tom Cochrane is stopping in many cities including Toronto.

If you are looking for family fun, then consider tickets for Disney On Ice : Passport To Adventure or the mythical The Harlem Globetrotters (coming to PE!). Both of these are family friendly shows that will be fun for kids and adults alike. While not quite Disney on Ice, I did see Stars on Ice many years ago – it was terrific.

If you are travelling down to our southern friends, there are 500 qualifying shows in the United States! Why not book a show while you are down there and have yourself a grand old time.

Now, you must enter the coupon code on the map page (as shown below):

Ticketmaster Coupon Code: 2 for 1 Tickets

See that little thing that says “got an offer code?” – click that. Then enter your code. Not all types of tickets qualify for this offer. So, while I can still get pretty good seats at the Nickelback concert, I cannot use this promotion for floor seats.

There will be various seat limitations on most concerts and shows. Thus, you need to make sure the “2 for 1 Tickets” header shows up in your ticket type. This is still a pretty awesome deal as I can get two tickets to Nickelback for just shy of $65.

For this and future Ticketmaster coupon codes, visit our forum.

iTunes Canada: $4 Off Ed Sheeran X Album Just $5.99

iTunes Canada: $4 Off Ed Sheeran X Album Just $5.99

iTunes Canada is selling the Ed Sheeran X Album for just $5.99 on iTunes right now. This is a promotional price and it will go back up to $9.99 most likely.

I have to admit, I had never heard of this artist before this deal came up. I am a huge music-lover, but my current tastes are more towards symphonic metal and bands like Tool, Volbeat, Apocalyptica, and the like. However, I found many of the songs on this album pretty nice. I rather liked his slower songs like One, I’m a Mess, and Nina. A friend of mine actually sent me the music video for Thinking Out Loud, which is super sappy with a side of honey. It is a very sweet and a lovely song to dance to. It also appears to be the most popular song on the album, according to iTunes.

The X album includes the following songs:

  1. One
  2. Mess
  3. Sing
  4. Don’t
  5. Nina
  6. Photo
  7. Bloodstream
  8. Tenerife
  9. Runaway
  10. The Man
  11. Thinking Out Loud
  12. Afire Love

Each song would cost you $1.29 to purchase separately, so you can get the iTunes album for the value of around four songs. I like to purchase songs separately if I only like a few songs on an album. However, it is not worth purchasing these songs individually when the entire album is only $5.99.

It is hard to price compare digital music when iTunes has such a monopoly on the industry. However, you will not find this album cheaper anywhere else (well, unless you pirate it). Personally, while I keep my books and movies in physical copies, most my music is now digital – purchased off iTunes with iTunes cards that I purchased on sale. I think my last iTunes card was 20% off. Thus, if I bought this album it would be like spending 20% less on it. iTunes Canada: $4 Off Ed Sheeran X Album Just $5.99

If you are a big fan of Ed Sheeran, please post a comment and make song suggestions! We would love to hear your opinion on the album, what songs are your favourite, as well as any other interesting information you know about the artist.

This offer is on for a limited time only and could end at any time.

12 FREE Songs @ Google Play Store (Lorde, deadmau5, Miley, Coldplay, Daft Punk & More!)

12 FREE Songs @ Google Play Store (Lorde, deadmau5, Miley, Coldplay, Daft Punk & More!)

How many of you download your music, shows and movies? Okay, don’t actually answer that but whether you do or don’t, any opportunity at free songs should be one that you shouldn’t miss! Right now, the Google Play Store is offering 12 songs for free by popular artists like Miley Cyrus, Lorde, deadmau5, Paramore and a couple of others.

Once you click over to the Google Play Store’s page to get the free songs, you will see a selection of 12 images. Upon seeing these, I first thought that maybe full albums were available (if only!) but in fact, the cover photos displayed are either for the individual songs available for free or for the full album. If you see the name of the song in the picture, then you will only see that specific song once you click over but if you see the name of the full album, then you will also be able to buy the rest of the songs in that artist’s given album for $1.29 per song.

Here is the full list of all the songs that you can get for free:

  • Get Lucky by Daft Punk feat. Pharrell
  • Let Your Hair Down by MAGIC!
  • Royals by Lorde
  • A Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay
  • American Kids by Kenny Chesney
  • Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff by deadmau5
  • Delirious (Boneless) by Steve Aoki
  • Ain’t It Fun by Paramore
  • Timber by Pitbull feat. Ke$ha
  • Not A Bad Thing by Justin Timberlake
  • Problem by Ariana Grande
  • Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus

To get these free songs, you will need to first have a Google Play Store account and you will also need to add a payment method. The songs don’t cost anything, so it’s slightly perplexing as to why you would need to even add a payment method, especially since when it prompts you to do so, it will say: “$0.00″ but in any case, at lease you will get them for free! The good news is that if you don’t want to add a credit or debit card to your account, then you can link a PayPal account instead.

Moosers, what is your favourite song out of the ones available for free?
