That being said, if you’re like me, despite all the new technology and convenience, occasionally you feel like you’re still ending up with the same old perspective shared by the local radio DJ. Enter iTunes international. Go ahead, click on that button at the bottom of the iTunes store that let’s you see what other countries are listening to!
Sometimes you can find different versions of the same songs, or you can discover music in different lists that you would have never found in the regular old iTunes USA store. If you get discouraged that you can’t purchase any of the songs on those stores, head on over to eBay (I go to ebay.fr) and see if you can’t find a screaming deal on some iTunes credit redeemable on the iTunes store for another country!
I’m sure you’ve heard a lot of these, but here’s the latest playlist I came up with for my wife including some songs discovered with the assistance of iTunes France:
If I Ever Feel Better, Phoenix
1973, James Blunt
Paper Aeroplane, Angus & Julia Stone
Be Still (Radio Edit), Kaskade
Your Love, Jo Bisso
Apologize, Timbaland featuring One Republic

On s'attache, Christophe Mae
All I Want, Jehro
Des que j'te vois, Vanessa Paradis

Note from the wife: I LOVE my new playlist!
