It would be very difficult to do this, since each of the songs in spotify are actualy stored in around 30 seprate files wich contain a littile bit of the data for each song. So unless you have a way of figering out wich bits of data from each file are for wich song and merging those bits of data together in mp3 format you cant burn it to a disk.

In some countries you can buy using a link in the Spotify app, through 7Digital.
Just to clarify, the Download service (available throughout Europe) is no longer provided through 7Digital but is entirely managed by Spotify now.

Correct. If you want MP3s to own you pay extra.
Again, what you get with a Premium account over and above a free one is:
A Premium subscription gets rid of the ads, gets rid of the five play per single track limit, gets rid of the 10 hour a month limit, allows you to download the tracks to listen to when you are not connected to the internet, allows you to use the Android/IOS/Win7 apps and allows you to listen on various other devices like Sonos.
And I thought of another: it allows you to listen while abroad.
