All free via the Music Deals app.
You need Windows 8.1, Windows 10 Tech Preview (free) or WindowsPhone 8 to claim and download the songs.
All songs download at 320k, DRM free MP3s and sync nicely with Google Play.
Again, this is a new offer as of 12/9. The prior offer/songs have expired and are no longer available.
Some of the ALL NEW selections include:

If you are on a windows phone, you must have a credit card on file to do the initial purchase, otherwise you will get an 8000ffff error. You do not need one on file to download from the windows 8.1 desktop app, (I have some prepaid credit on your account, that might be enough)
