June’s Zune Pass Songs

I got a Zune Pass a few months ago. For $14.99/month, it allows you to stream music from the Zune service. (As an aside, shhhh…don’t tell the Apple people that Microsoft has had a music streaming service long before they did – it doesn’t fit the meme that Microsoft doesn’t innovate. They innovate – they just suck at marketing. Oh, and if I understand the Apple iCloud offering, you can only listen to music you’ve bought, not any song you want.)

One of the nice benefits of the Zune Pass is that with your subscription you get to download and keep 10 DRM free songs each month. So, basically, for $14.99 ($5.00 more than your average album) you get 10 songs to keep forever and all the streaming music you want. Not a bad deal if you ask me. Plus in the future when I get my Windows Phone 7 (I’m holding out for something better on Verizon than the HTC Trophy), I can use the Zune software on it as well.

This month’s Zune Pass purchases are all over the map style/genre wise. In no particular order, here they are:

  1. Uptight (Everything’s Alright) – Stevie Wonder
  2. Sir Duke – Stevie Wonder
  3. Are You Gonna Go My Way – Lenny Kravitz
  4. Born To Be Wild – Steppenwolf
  5. Disco Inferno – The Trammps
  6. Flirtin’ With Disaster – Molly Hatchet
  7. Free For All – Ted Nugent
  8. Get Down Tonight – KC & The Sunshine Band
  9. I Want You Back – The Jackson 5 (On principle (thanks to Scott Y.) I won’t listen to or buy any Michael Jackson music due to the allegations against him. I made an exception for his music when he was a child.)
  10. Mississippi Queen – Mountain
