Why Can’t I Buy Liz Phair’s Cover of Mother’s Little Helper?

I like Liz Phair.

I love the Stones.

I really, really like covers.

So when I learned that the soundtrack [1] to Desperate Housewives [2] had Liz Phair [3] doing a cover of the Rolling Stones [4] classic Mother’s Little Helper, I wanted to have it.

So I fired up iTunes Music Store to buy it — only you can’t. Not unless you buy the whole album, which to be quite blunt, looks rather mediocre.

So I want to legitimately buy this, but I cannot. What’s wrong with this picture?
