It depends on your encoding. The higher quality the MP3, the more space it takes up. If you're that space concerned (with 4GB I can't imagine why you would be) I'd suggest not downloading anything over 128.

As for 1.8GB for 301 songs, that averages out to just under 6MB a song... which isn't all that unreasonable depending on quality. For 128 songs, I average about 3 - 4MB per song.

All that was to say that 1.8GB for 301 songs doesn't seem outrageous to me.
