Google Music allows me to 'pin' songs in Android so that I can listen to them while offline. Is it possible to do this on a computer as well?

All of my music is stored on my home PC, and now I can listen to it on Google Music, but I would like to be able to download songs from the cloud to my work laptop so that I can share them on outloud.fm.

I've got a feeling this feature doesn't exist, but I might just be overlooking it. Is this possible? Is there a work-around?

Offline playback is only supported on Android devices at present. This option is not available for playback via your computer.

Get yourself a Virtual Machine running Android, and do it from there. A little Google-fu found me this article. Note that I have not actually tried this (though I probably will once I get home from work).
