Google Music offers 100 holiday songs for 25¢ each

Google's "10 days of 10 cent apps" promotion, which the company used to "celebrate" its 10 billionth app download, is now over.

In its place, Google's Android Market has 100 seasonal songs on sale at its Google Music adjunct, all for 25 cents each. The music isn't just oldies, either; you'll find tunes from ColdPlay and Tori Amos to go along with Bing Crosby.

The 100 different songs are split into five different categories, including:
  • MODERN CHRISTMAS CLASSICS
  • A FUNKY XMAS
  • CHRISTMAS CHESTNUTS
  • A CLASSICAL CHRISTMAS
  • BAH HUMBUG
