Try Before You Buy

I’m loving the DRM free music from Amazon.com and I will never purchase DRMed ANYTHING ever again.  I personally got burned when the URGE store closed and I was left with a whole bunch of purchased tracks that I couldn’t listen to because the songs couldn’t ping the server to get permission to pay.  RIDICULOUS!  

The only beef I have with the Amazon and any other digital music store is that they only allow 30 second previews of the songs.  Why not just let us preview the whole song, even at a degraded quality.  You are already supporting this business strategy because there are advertisements on the page.  Heck, they could even put in audio advertisements in the song previews before a song plays.  I just want to know what I’m buying will keep me entertained and will enjoy for years to come.  
Is that too much to ask for?
