I am totally loving this freebie from Roots Canada and iTunes Canada. Get a bundle of ten songs from Canadian artists for free! You get a unique code through the link below and then click the “Get it free on iTunes” to auto-redeem your code and automatically start downloading your free music pack.

You will get these ten songs:

So far I have listened to two and a half of these songs while writing this post, and I have to say Summer Vibe by Walk Off the Earth is so far my favourite.

iTunes Canada: Select Albums Only $6.99

Get select albums on sale for only $6.99 online at iTunes Canada.

Click here to get these albums @ iTunes.apple.com now

There are ten albums to choose from:

I am a big classic rock fan, so I am familiar with and a big fan of AC/DC, Queen, and the Eagles. I have to say that the last album from David Bowie (aka the one above) was a huge disappointment.

I can also highly recommend the Muse album above as I own it and love it.

My only other experience with the list above is the song Red Hands by Walk Off the Earth, which I own and enjoy as well. I will be considering picking up the rest of the album in this sale.

iTunes Canada: The Voice Albums For $6.99

iTunes Canada: The Voice Albums For $6.99

iTunes Canada is having a special sale on albums from the TV show ‘The Voice’ coaches. Get albums from Shakira, Usher, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine for only $6.99 each.

Click here to shop @ iTunes.apple.com now

Here are the albums on sale:

You can also pick up some The Voice singles from the contestants they have had on previous seasons and current season four contestants. Most of the singles cost $1.29, so not as great a deal as when these full albums go on sale.

I have really not watched The Voice. I do love the blind voice auditioning though – I think that is brilliant. I love it because I think so much of success is not based on talent but rather good looks. I was recently reminded of that when watching So You Think You Can Dance. Mary kept on telling girls how beautiful they were and how they looked so much like ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’ All I was thinking was “who CARES if they look like the Virgin Mary or the Hunchback? It only matters if they can dance!” That is what I like about The Voice: the first thing they care about is talent.

Buytopia Canada: Clip Shuffle MP3 Player Only $5

Buytopia Canada: Clip Shuffle MP3 Player Only $5

Buytopia Canada has an amazing deal on a clip shuffle MP3 Player with earphones and USB cable for only $5, regularly $49.

I truly think this a really great deal, as I have an MP3 player like this and paid around the $50 mark. This is the perfect tool for the gym or running because it easily clips on to your clothing and is small enough, you barely notice it. I actually lost the USB cable for my player and we considered buying another player just to get the cable, but didn’t want to spend the $50. I am definitely taking advantage of this deal.

If you normally use your phone for your music and don’t need an MP3 player, think about getting your kids each one of these. You have your choice of eight different colours, so if you do buy more than one, everyone in the family can have their own colour.

The sound quality is great and the reviews back that up. It has a 100mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery (which means it lasts a long time) and a card slot that supports a micro SD/TF card up to 8GB, so it can hold a good amount of music.

You can buy unlimited vouchers and tax is already included.

Shipping is $6.99.

iTunes: Listen to Justin Timberlake The 20/20 Experience For Free

iTunes: Listen to Justin Timberlake The 20/20 Experience For Free

Right now iTunes is letting music lovers listen to the entire new album of Justin Timberlake entitled The 20/20 Experience.

I have toted the merits of this style of free listening before. I don’t agree with pirating music so this is one of the best ways for me to sample new music and sometimes new artists. I do have to say that Timberlake is not an artist I would generally listen to, however, the description for his new album intrigues me:

Justin Timberlake returns with a captivating mix of big band sounds, crooning vocals, and crawling bass hooks.

I like big band sounds and crooning vocals so I might actually give this album a try. I get to stream it for free, so why not?

This offer is only available for a limited time exclusively on iTunes on your computer or iPad.

iTunes Canada: Listen to the New David Bowie Album For Free

iTunes Canada: Listen to the New David Bowie Album For Free

iTunes Camada has a fabulous freebie for anyone on a budget who wants to listen to great music without being a pirate. Right now you can listen to David Bowie’s entire new album The Next Day absolutely free!

Five reasons why you need to check this album out:

  1. It is his first album in ten years
  2. The guy is a rock legend
  3. 14 new songs of Bowie goodness!
  4. Expanding musical horizons is good
  5. It is free!!!!!

I am listening to the album now, and though I have only made it through one of fourteen songs, I’m not incredibly impressed yet (actually I hate the first song). The second song isn’t as bad as the first one, but I firmly believe one should never judge an entire album by just a couple songs. There can always be a few gems in an otherwise mediocre album. So I am looking forward to hearing the album in its entirety.

Here are some details for this deal:
