Amazon starts 69 cent music store Amazon has announced the launch of an online digital music store that will sell songs for 69 cents.
The move, hopes the company, will bring more consumers to the site, where they will purchase the music and store it on the free CloudDrive, which also streams music. Users can pay for more than the free 5GB of space Amazon offers if they run out of space.

For now, only 200 of Amazon MP3s available 15 million songs are selling for 69 cents.

However, 26 of the top 40 most popular songs are selling at the discounted rate, down from their regular $.99-1.29.

"All of that ties into this experience of getting them to discover and buy and listen to more music, so it's all interrelated," says Amazon of the move.

No! I think this is a major step in the music business. They are still way over priced but this hopefully will show some progress.
