Google Builds Music-Download Store - WSJ.com

Digital music is one of many examples of domains in which I believe Google should be partnering with Amazon, rather than trying to beat Apple as an end-to-end solitary supplier 

Google Inc. is building a music-download store that would work closely with its Google+ social network and could launch it within the next two weeks, according to people familiar with the matter.

Users of Google Music, as the service is tentatively named, could recommend songs in an online library to Google+ contacts, who in turn would be allowed to listen to those songs once for free. The songs would then be available for sale as MP3 downloads, probably for around the usual 99 cents each.
