You should see if you can convert it to a gift card and give it to a friend who enjoys pop music...  >:D

Or go for a couple of seasons of Battlestar Galactica.  ;D

Not an iTunes fan, eh?

I'm liking this Franck symphony!

Not a DRM fan or a low bitrate lossy compression fan honestly. I enjoy iTunes immensely for managing my library and despite the bloat, I do love the coverflow feature. The retail end, I am not so impressed with largely because of DRM, the hoops required for one to jump through to reacquire a lost download, limited search functionality, and the radio quality bitrate among other things. The same is true of most of these download stores... other services get some of the details right but still get others wrong... the model for a paid digital distribution of media is still seems to be in its infancy though.

Meh... check the EMI catalog on iTunes Plus... at least that way you avoid the DRM and get a slightly higher quality download.

Very nice! I have two iTunes gift cards that I have had for over a year now... I may use them one of these days. ;)
