I was listening to “Not Now John” from Pink Floyd’s The Final Cut, and wondered how much the rest of the album cost. So I clicked on the album name, and the CD came up on iTunes: $7.99.

Wow! Pretty good, even though I already bought one of the songs.

A few minutes later, I went back and looked at it again, only this time I did a search for “pink floyd final cut.” This time, it was $11.99. Same album.

Naturally, I retraced my steps that first led me to the $7.99 version. There it was again. I haven’t listened to the whole thing in years– I bought a copy in Japan in the summer of 1983, and haven’t had a turntable since 1994 at the latest– but I bought it.
