The same ones available from the US, UK, Aus, or anywhere else. That's why it's called the www. (World Wide Web). You could try the russian sites but you are liable to get more than you bargined for.

Clue's in the title mate. 'LEGAL DOWNLOAD'

I'm actually prepared to pay for the content. Shocking I know.

Go ahead, try to get something from iTunes, Napster, Vongo, Urge etc.

You get these lovely little messages that say something like

THIS SERVICE IS NOT AVAILABLE IN YOUR COUNTRY

Over to you.

Yeah - wonder why's that... it's really easier to download pirated ones than the paid, legal one. Wonder where's the logic of the record companies.

Btw - wrayr - try soundbuzz.com probably? Never use that but I heard it works for AP.

Actually, I with iTunes you can download as long as the billing address on your credit card is from a country that they do have the service in.

I use emusic.com, doesn't carry chart stuff but I've found quite a lot of stuff I like there and have broadened my tastes a bit. Think you should be able to browse and see if you like what's there. It's subscription based.
