My bank account quails and cowers

A mere decade after Kazaa, there's finally a service I can download music from legally which fits my various requirements (mp3 format, decent bitrate, no DRM) - play.com, who I already had an account with because they sell cheap DVDs.

It's still not perfect - they've only got music distributed by EMI, so 90% of the stuff I've searched for hasn't been there. And there's no obvious way to browse all of the music on the site by genre or anything, so you're stuck with searching for particular bands or track names.

But even so I've already managed to drop about £40 on albums and individual tracks. If they ever manage to up their library to the level of iTunes it'll be both fantastic (since I'll be able to buy almost any song in the world with a couple of clicks) and expensive (since I'll be able to buy almost any song in the world with a couple of clicks).
