I tunes - yet another web site allowing us to make furtive purchases

Thanks to the anonymity of the web, people can buy all kinds of things they'd be embarassed to go into a store and purchase in person.

ITunes, for example, allows me to buy all kinds of chee-zee 70's Hits that are guilty pleasures for me. See, for example, this recent purchase:

Robert Palmer - Looking for Clues
Bill Withers - Lovely Day
Boz Scaggs (Boz f*&*in Scaggs) - Lowdown
Marvin Gaye - Got to Give It Up

Marvin Gaye wouldn't fall in this category, but when they used that song for the 'everybody get funky and bust a move' scene in 'Barbershop', they pretty much raped Gaye's carcass and cheesified that song beyond repair.

It's still a good song, though.
