So I saw the video for the song J'en ai marre by Alizee the other day. Never mind the fact that this girl is hawt, it's a catchy little tune.
I figure it's worth checking to see if iTunes has it since I don't really want to buy her entire album. I pop into the iTunes music store and search for Alizee and turn up nothing.
Then I remember that there's a little pull down at the bottom of the music store that lets you change countries. I switch over to France, search for Alizee and, bingo there she is!
.99 euros, sure, ok. Click the "Buy Song" button, enter my username and password:
"Your account is only valid for purchases in the US Music Store".
WTF? Alright, fine! I'll sign up for an account with the fucking French Music Store.
So I go back to the French Music Store, head for new accounts and start filling out the form. Most words are pretty clear cognates so I muddle through.
Then I get to the credit card entry page. And I'm only allowed to enter a French billing address. So no Alizee for me from iTunes!
What I don't get is WHY? Isn't it in EVERYONE's best interests to let me buy from whichever iTunes store I want?
I get to buy this cheesy French pop song which makes me happy. iTunes, Alizee, & the French version of the RIAA all get their little cuts of my 0.99 euros which makes them happy. What's the big furry deal?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
