Does Downloading one song hurt your ratio?

If I see a show I'm interested in, but no samples, I sometimes DL one song to see how it sounds. If there is a 700mb concert, I download one song (25mb), in my 'size' it shows 700mb, but I only DL a fraction of that. After seeding the one track, my ratio is very low. It looks like if I download only 25mb, I get 'charged' as if I downloaded 700mb. If I seed the 25mb long enough to pay back, it penalizes me because I 'only' seeded 25mb of the '700'.
Is this true? Why does it act like it if not?
