Lord make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy
O divine master grant that I may
not so much seek to be consoled as to console
to be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
And it is in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it's in dying that we are born to eternal life

Performed by Sarah McLachlan but the iTunes Music Store won't sell it to you.

that is really powerful - and sung by Sarah McLachlan only makes it more beautiful. Thanks :)

In the past I teased a kid for liking her. I then got her "Mirrorball" album and realized how completely stupid I was...

A friend of mine from the submarine teased me about having the CD. All of his CDs got stolen and he borrowed the few I had with me. When I went to get my CDs back he had her CD in his player.

It is absurd how great she is!

Won't or can't? In the overly complex world of copyright, who is preventing the track from being sold? I'm guessing it's not Apple as Sarah's tracks sell quite well on the store.

I'm not so much an Apple apologist, rather a copyright wonk.

A friend showed me iTunes yesterday (I'm a bit behind the times), and I was surprised and amused at the things iTunes didn't cover. My first three queries drew either blanks or misses. A search for "Zappa" show only something that Dweezel had done with Wierd Al and a recording by Hesperion XX, in an entirely different genre. Looks like a good way to explore, though.

Dirk, that's a "can't" not a "won't". If you'd go read some recent news you'll note that Apple is working damned hard to get iTMS up and running in Europe. It's Europe's red tape that is causing the problem, not Apple. Why not talk to you government representatives to see why there's such a big problem with selling music in Europe?
