Is it just me, or am I not seeing “Beauty and the Beast” on there, as per the press release?

Just kidding… i’m an idiot.  It was listed under the “kids” subsection, and not with the rest of the big movie soundtracks from Disney.

What a waste of HD space.

why do you ask why and why do you say its a waste?  Some people like disney music, some people don’t.  I for one, do.  I bought the aladdin, little mermaid and lion king soundtracks.

This outstanding! Just like any other kind of music out there… fans of this music should be able to shop on a “song by song” basis! For parents, this is a huge plus.. you don’t have to buy the whole soundtrack for the kids. Why would anyone think this is wasted space??? This is all good, and it ain’t hurting anyone.

Interesting, Disney and Steve Jobs trying to mend old rifts?

I am getting a bit tired of hearing about itms - still not available in Australia some 4-6 months after originally scheduled. Other music stores can operate in this country but it seems Apple don’t care about markets outside USA.

Waste of HD Space? Come on! Who doesn’t like Louis Prima’s “I wanna be like you” from Jungle Book? Or The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack? Or the original “Cruella De Vil”? You guys need to be more open to some of the classic Disney fair before it went to the toilet.

Neil….I feel your pain.  Not having iTunes available in other countries is extremely frustrating.  Will it ever happen?  Also….what is the deal with Steve Jobs and Disney….“mend old rifts”...what happened?

Disney is great, so is their music. What’s the Big problem with it being offered on the ITMS. Infrances on, music store.
