I checked back 4 pages/16 hours of discussion and haven't seen it mentioned, soooo...

WooHoo! The catchy jingle that plays on the Kindle TV commercial is free!

I don't know how long Amazon will offer it free though, so get it while you can!
I read somewhere that you don't need to use the Amazon downloader, just click past it when asked. Don't know if that's true, but if yet another small program d/l to clutter your pc stops you, I think you can get the song without it. Maybe someone can report back on that?

Anyhooo, here's the link:
Stole My Heart

Thanks...just downloaded it. I have never seen a Kindle commercial :(
However, I did order a Kindle and Wednesday is the big day when she arrives. My family will have to listen to Stole My Heart as I very slowly, very carefully, and very happily unwrap my Kindle!

Lol, what a great way to introduce your K to the family.

Youtube has the commercials. If the above link doesn't show the search I did, I just put Kindle commercial into the search field. :)

This song shoots me right back to the 80s. Has that same sound. That's not a bad thing.

I just downloaded it and it will be the first, (and probably only), mp3 on my Kindle. I'll use it as an example when I show off my Kindle. Then when the person sees the commercial, they'll remember the hands on demonstration. Right along with my book, "UR" by Stephen King. These are the official song and book of the Kindle, in my view.

Cynthia, really? You know there are ways around that. I have a copy.

Cynthia, if you and other Canuckistanites want to email me (profile), I'll email it to you. It's drm free so I don't think Amazon would be against my doing that.

Marc,
Bufo also has a text document that he has his K read aloud to people. I don't know which thread to point you to, but here is his txt with some of my own changes (the last part is to freak people out/make them laugh :) )

Voice of Kindle script (all credit goes to Bufo, and forgive my changes):

Hi!

My name is Skinderella, or KittyBooBoo, depending upon how my owner feels today, ha-ha-ha, and I am the voice of OhEmGee*'s Kindle.

In case you think I am reading phonetically, I'm not.
In fact, I know the difference between Arkansas and Kansas. I know tricky words and phrases like fait accompli,
souvenir, and geophysicist. I can even say...behavioral psychologist!

There are some words that give me trouble though, like Brooklyn Br, or gigabytes. These should have been
Brooklyn Bridge, and the G pronounced guh, not juh, of course.

I can read books, magazines, and newspapers.

There's more: I can speak slower or faster, and you can change me to read in either a male or female voice.

Lastly, I can see you, and would like to say how nice you look today. Have a nice day!

*changed from my real name.

WoW! Made my day! I love this tune! I will have to check out more of their songs.

And this is the reason that artists and publishers want DRM. People like you "sharing" with millions of your closest internet friends.

Thanks for this, excellent find. This is why I'm starting to really dig advertising, it's getting to become a decent way to find some good new music.

Wow. Did you have to be a jerk to me? No, but you are. How about, "Hey, omg, did you realize ... and let me explain why..." instead of assuming and attacking.
CLEARLY I'm unaware it's a problem since I offered to email it and SAID I didn't think Amazon would mind.
If it's a problem, and not them getting more exposure, please show me why, cuz I don't understand.
If Amazon is advertising and making no secret that they're offering the song free, then how am I (and people like me) the reason artists want DRM?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 12, 2010 6:55:58 PM PDT
Erm, how was I a jerk to you? What did I assume, and what exactly about you did I attack? Ignorance or malice, unless you are the songwriter, her producer, or otherwise have written permission to distribute her work, you don't have the right to do so. You said it yourself:
"It's drm free so I don't think Amazon would be against my doing that."
That is exactly what DRM protects against - people who would break the law out of ignorance. It certainly doesn't protect against those who are determined to circumvent it.

How do I get the song on my Kindle, where will it show up if I do the download?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 12, 2010 7:19:29 PM PDT
Download the song to your computer. (Know where it is.)
Attach your Kindle to your computer with USB.
Copy and past the MP3 to the music folder in your Kindle.
Eject Kindle.
Music will play on Kindle when you go to Experimental on Kindle.

If you need more help/directions, just post back. :)

Connect your Kindle to your computer (USB cable). Open Kindle drive/icon. Drag the mp3 to the Kindle music folder. Safely eject Kindle. Remove the cable.
