I'm Not a Bad Person, Amazon-san, Honest!

I live overseas. I like music. I want to purchase and download MP3s from Amazon.com, which are literally half the price of the same album sold by iTunes Japan. Amazon doesn't want to let me do this.

Last night I experimented with hotspotshield
, a free VPN service that hid the fact that I'm overseas. To test it I successfully watched Hulu (which is pretty darn cool. America has come a long way since I lived there!).
Unfortunately, Amazon will still not let me order an MP3 with an overseas credit card, which is all I have. If I get someone who lives in the States to buy me an Amazon gift certificate, and use this in conjunction with the VPN, will I be able to enter the nirvana of cheap, legal MP3 albums?
