Apple's iTunes Music Store now offers over one million songs, though while the company's UK arm was quick to trumpet the passing of that particular milestone today, it only applies to the US store.

Still, it's an impressive target, and we eagerly await the addition of sufficient songs to take the UK, French and German stores past that point, particularly now that the company has settled its differences with key European independent labels.

Apple isn't the first online music provider to pass the million-song mark - its mobile music rival, Loudeye, announced a similarly extensive track listing when it acquired ITMS' European rival, OD2, in June. ®
