I just got 1,230 songs for free. Sorta. I hope.

I’m listening to Traffic’s live version of “Light up or Leave Me Alone.” Which is no big deal except that at this time yesterday it wasn’t in my music collection.

Longtime readers will recall that several years ago my Mac died in a fiery car crash, taking my iTunes collection with it. I eventually reinstalled all of the songs I had on CD, but I forever lost the ones I had bought from iTunes.

Until today. I came across a Facebook post in which someone mentioned a new feature that allows you to download songs that you bought but which are no longer on your iTunes for whatever reason. For instance, if your Mac died in a fiery car crash.

I was skeptical, but when I checked, there they were. 1,230 songs from years gone by, patiently waiting to jump back on the bus.

So here I am. It’s 4 a.m. and I’m singing along with Modest Mouse’s “Good News for People Who Love Bad News.” Please bury me with it.

Thanks, Mr. Jobs.This is just more reason why Apple is Apple and everything else is just clutter. I hope you feel better soon.

Unless I check my Visa account tomorrow and find a $1,230 charge …

    Minimum payment due is 24.00 for this months visa bill. I hope you have the kind that gives a rebate or at least points. Look at the bright side it is still cheaper than100 new CD’s. I could go on all day with this bad news but the good news is I am done.
