I recently discovered Spotify and while somewhat new to it, it seems head and shoulders better than iTunes. I am still in the premium trial period, but think I will definitely subscribe for $9.99 per month. It is basically unlimited music, and with an FM transmitter - there is now absolutely no reason for me to pay for XM subscriptions in the car or to make a purchase on iTunes again. It also eliminates any interest in Pandora for me. I am guessing that the Free version is riddled with commercials and advertisements.

Just had to share

I have Spotify and cannot say enough good things about it, awesome product. From home to the car to work, you have seemingly unlimited music at your fingertips.

I couple with XM in the car, but cut XM streaming. Spotify is great for what it is, but content rules. I want my live sports and talk/news/music channels when I am in the car, and XM owns the live content arena.

If you can foot SiriusXM and Spotify, you should never have pay a dime ad-hoc for music content ever again. Total for me is ~ $16/month since I have a promo rate for XM Premium in the car that works out to about $6/mo.

I have the free and it's great. The commercials only pop up once every 6 or 7 songs and there is only one. The only drawback to the free is i can't get it on my Android, gotta go pay for that. But I don't need that at this time. Love it too because I can pull it up on my Onkyo home stereo or play it through my HTPC.

Free is great.

the best part is creating customizable playlists. I go to town on those depending on what mood I'm in.

And I like new subscribers so here they are if you are interested:

Old School R and B/Soul:


233 Songs, 17 hours (especially this one, I spent a LOT of time putting this together)

Under-rated Hip Hop


Christmas


138 songs, 7 hours

My favorite thing of Spotify is hearing a random song on terrestrial radio or in a resturant that reminds you of an artist or genre; then you go back and not just listen to that song but the whole catalog of that artist. I'm discovering and rediscovering things all the time on here.

The only feature I wish it had (that I can't find if it does) is the ability to take a song and then see all the playlists that contain that song. I'm aware that you can radio station a song, but the exploration of different playlists is a little weak. This is nitpicking in an otherwise fantastic service.

I just do the free in my office and at home and I listen to podcasts in the car via iphone.

I use the App "We Are Hunted" for discovering new indie music. It's pretty good, but I wish there was something like SiriusXMU.

The only thing I don't like is that they're horrible at creating stations. Pandora is much better. And I can't figure out how to delete stations. It came with a Rihanna station and there's no way to get rid of it.

Hey Isotopes,

Can we change the title of the thread to Spotify Playlists? Let's try and get a crapload of playlists in here. I'm working on a few myself.

TIA

I've got a rock playlist for every year going back to 1980 right now, slowly working on the 70's. 2013 is a living document

Also some other one-off mixes. Pink Floyd and Beatles covers for instance. Some cheesy hair metal stuff

Spotify needs to work something out to get Pink Floyd on there with the quickness.

How do I use this info to find you? Can't find anywhere on Spotify to enter it. :confused:

Anyone have a good 90s playlist that is alternative/pop? I have found rock and rap playlists for me, but can't find anything that my girlfriend likes without rap mixed in.

Dumb question here, but how do I search for playlists? For example, if I want a beach playlist and I want to see what other people have already put together...I can't figure out how to?

I don't understand why it shows grayed out tracks that aren't there anymore, in your playlists. Doesn't seem to be a way to get rid of them. Annoying.

If I buy the premium version, am I allowed to put my account on my wife's phone and my phone or will I have to buy 2 accounts?

You can have it everywhere (just use the same login). The catch is, only one device can play music at any time.

Grayed out songs in a playlist are because the track isn't available in this country or because playlist creator used a local copy of the song.

Yeah I knew why, I just didn't know how to get rid of them.. finally figured it out though. I'm an engineer!

Just put those links in your browser address bar.
Is there any way to set up links so that it takes you right into the app?

If I create a playlist that conatins some songs from my library, that are not on spotify and I share my playlist, will others hear those songs, or will it skip them?

I absolutely love Spotify and have been a total concert from the iTunes ecosystem for a variety of reasons. Best 10 dollars I spend every month.

My problem? Spotify effed us hard by in the latest release killing off the "What's new?" tab. I used it religiously to keep up with and check out the new albums every week and discover new music. Anyone know why they did this?

See eg http://community.spotify.com/t5/Help-Desktop-Linux-Mac-and/What-happened-to-the-quot-What-s-New-quot-tab/td-p/398528
Yeah that's crap, now it's just a giant recommendation that I listen to some Sevendust again

It's basically Pandora now. If I wanted Pandora, I'd have gotten Pandora. Quit recommending that I listen to another album by a band that I'm already listening to. Yes, I know about this band already.

Supposedly the rumor over at their community thread is that people were hammering the new music, and I guess Spotify pays royalties based on listens, and the new music is more expensive, and so they were getting killed. Who knows.
