Need to hear the music first!!!
great idea but music discovery will not occur over mobile phones. In order for this to be a success people need exposure to the material first via other platforms. Radio, internet, blogs, tv whatever - just because you create a new channel to purchase music doesnt mean that people will buy it.

Mobile phone music will never take off
Until they stop reaming the customers.
$7.50 for 5 songs?!! That's a hell of a lot. How can that lead to impulse buying?

Same crap, different day from the music industry including the indie now.
