At the moment they offer links to iTunes, Napster etc - why not take an extra bite out of that cherry?

I have recently been quite the music junkie (and was searching hundreds of weird lyrics searches to find a cheesy song I didnt know the band, song name, or lyrics of). The music onebox is pretty old.

But of course I am sure eventually the depth of selection in a vertical will have something to do with who is willing to pay for exposure.

Yeah I mentioned that here on TW
