'music' iTunes music store link

Title
'music' iTunes music store link

Short, concise description of the idea
A way of changing the current music thing in journals into a link to that song's profile and preview in iTunes music store.

Full description of the idea
Now that iTunes has been released on Windows, I thought perhaps it should be implemented into Livejournal. You may be aware of the 'Music store' feature, where 30 second song-clips are available to listen to, and then you can buy the full song for 99 cents if you like it. Maybe you guys should make a feature where clicking on the current music thing links through to that song in iTunes Music store? It'd be a great way to sample tracks that friends are listening to.

An ordered list of benefits

  • You can learn about and listen to songs that perhaps you may not have previously heard about.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Getting people to correctly list their current song so that it can be read by iTunes.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I know that Apple have created this ( http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZSearch.woa/wa/itmsLinkMaker ) which makes an HTML link to songs in iTunes. Maybe some kind of version of this could be used?
