Top 10 Signs You're a Spotify UserStreaming music services like Spotify have again revolutionized how we consume music like the radio, the cassette tape, and digital downloads did in the past. And while there are those who are resisting change as is the case whenever there are people who are successful in the current system, the simple fact is that streaming music is here to stay which is great news for the consumer.
Unlike just a few years ago, when you either had to purchase (or pirate) the songs or albums you wanted to hear or hope the radio DJ would honor your call in request, Spotify gives you access to their entire catalogue of music to listen to whenever or wherever you want. It's like have a best friend who has no problem lending you any CD they own... and they own over a million of them.
So forget having to buy a separate hard drive to store your collection (or CD tower if you're still not sure of this whole Interwebs fad), and stop wasting your time reading other people's album reviews to try to figure out if an album is worth the $9.99 you'll have to pay town buy it off iTunes. Look into a streaming service like Spotify and get access to more content than you could listen to in a lifetime*.
*Spotify claims a library of 30,000,000 tracks. Assuming an average track length of 3 minutes, it would take 171 years to listen to the entire library.
The Top Ten
$9.99 seemed like yet another expense until you realize that all you had to do was buy 8 popular new songs in a month from iTunes and you'd be paying more than $9.99.
You almost feel bad for all those carefully selected CDs collecting dust on a shelf or all those files sitting in the iTunes library with their play counts never incrementing. It's not that you don't listen to that stuff anymore, it's just way easier to stream it.
T-Mobile currently offers unlimited streaming for services such as Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, and many more. This streaming does not count against your data so you can listen wherever you can get service.
Way better than trying to sing it.
Who uses the "Starred" thing? I just go to my massive library of songs and either press play and listen to whatever crap starts playing or listen to Coldplay. It always works. - Merilille
Foo Fighters! I listen to almost all the songs, almost every day.
Yes. I didn't had to worry about downloading viruses or entering some twisted Deep Web MP3 websites ever since getting Spotify. Although that still doesn't top my preference to just listen to music on YouTube instead. - Bolshoy_Brat
Remember back when you would buy a CD, find out it really wasn't that good, but force yourself to listen to it a dozen times in an effort to force yourself to like it? That sucked.
