But I protest! The piece is three movements, the first being 30 
seconds, and they posted an anonymous 1:45 - equal lengths for the 
three movments (the other two cost 99 cents each) so in the midst of 
pulling an april fools joke early, they made fools of themselves! 

Ha ha, but I now have a free "song" downloaded.
