I just found out that HMV will be giving away one free festive track each day for the next 12 days (starting today) as part of their 12 Days of HMVDigital event. It's quite probable that these giveaways are limited to Canadians; however, I have no way of testing that myself, since I am in fact Canadian and already a member of HMVDigital. If someone residing outside of Canada would like to test this out for themselves, please report back here and let everyone know whether or not it works. If it doesn't, then I apologize, as I do like to keep the content I post about accessible to as many people as possible. As someone who has often found himself on the outside looking in at all of Amazon's MP3 giveaways, though, I can't help but feel excited about this, and I really hope that at least a few people are able to benefit from it.
The first MP3 to be given away in this event is "Ave Maria" by The Canadian Tenors. If it turns out that people in the rest of the world can also access these downloads, then I'll probably make mention of any noteworthy songs as they become available; otherwise, this will probably be the last time I mention it. Either way, please let me know how it works for you.
P.S. This isn't meant to be today's post - I'm actually working on another one that should be up soon and will have music that anyone can download, like most of my posts.
