    I have a suggestion, though one that would probably be hard to fulfill. Why not be a little more diverse in the music and do songs in different languages? Specifically Japanese, because they have some very good music over there. We stick to the common labels of "J-pop" and "J-rock", but Japan has a huge diversity of music. Mind you, I don't know how much of that is free, especially state side or outside Japan in general. That's the only real wrinkle. Once you get past the language barrier and come to accept it you'll find some really catchy songs. Just food for thought from someone who loves Japanese music.

      Not sure I'll be able to make a Japanese music edition, but I'll add it to my list. I do have a large colelction of "international" music, international in terms of language. A "world music" edition (with a fancier name, though) has been on my list.
