iTunes etc.

As someone with a US credit card, iTunes believes I live in the US. Thus it offers me the free Song of the Week for the US market each week. I often find this funny. The goal of the free song of the week is to introduce prospective buyers to obscure musicians we're not so likely to have heard of. Recently, this has included Duffy and the Ting Tings.*

Does iTunes do the same sort of thing for UK or European users? Are the results more resolutely obscure or not?

* New, but not at all obscure current musical performers from the UK.
