Hello my lurking lurkers,
I’m not much of a fan of Taylor Swift. I don’t hate her, I’m just not into it. But as I was scrolling down the interwebs looking for the longest Spotify playlist ever, somehow I managed to stumble upon several articles about Taylor Swift pulling her music off Spotify.
“Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for. It’s my opinion that music should not be free.” – Taylor Swift
Music is art, I agree on that. Art is indeed important and valuable. Music can touch the hearts of people. It can save lives. Music is so powerful and so valuable, that it is too precious to put a pricetag on.
It is my opinion that music should be accessible to anyone. I do not see a problem in sharing music for free. Especially not, when a musician can earn money from the concerts they give, merchandize they sell and the several products they sponsor. Then again, I’m te kind of hippie that also thinks food and medication should be accesible to anyone.
The only people who will suffer when a musician decides to make their music less accessible, isn’t the people behind Spotify, or any other similar product. It’s the music fan who suffers. Isn’t the reason why musicians claim to make their music, their fans…?
Oh well. Everyone their thing. I never intended to listen to Taylor Swift and if her music isn’t on Spotify, then that’s fine by me. I couldn’t give a shizzle. There’s much more interesting music to be found on Spotify anyway.
I guess you could say that I’m quite fond of Spotify. I have the app on my smartphone so that i can listen to my favorite tunes while I’m on the road. Of course the app is also installed on my laptop, so I have access to my favorite tunes at home [or wherever else I take my laptop]. Whenever I’m with a friend who doesn’t have Spotify, I will convince them to download it. Because who doesn’t like free music, right?
Yes, I am fond of Spotify. There’s even a Spotify playlist of mine displayed on this very blogsite! You can see it on the right of the screen.
Another feature that I like about Spotify is the ability to see what people in your friendlist are listening to. It’s silly, but my forever alone heart skips a beat whenever I see that Mr. Shinoda is listening to a song on Spotify . He has a few interesting playlists himself. So do many other celebs, by the way.
About 3 years ago I’ve written a similar blogpost about my fondness towards Spotify as well. Feel free to read my other miserable attempt to blog about Spotify here. In that specific blogpost, I was wondering what the longest Spotify playlist was and whether there’s a slight possibility if it were me. Hense why I was scrolling the interwebs in search of the longest playlist on Spotify.
When I search google for the longest Spotify Playlist, I stumble upon Spotifyuser Kenny Eriksson’s account. His playlist contains almost 10.000 songs, varying from KISS to The Simpsons. It is quite an impressive collection, I must say. Just click the Spotify button and check it out yourself.
Some of my readers have commented about playlists containing 3000, 8000 and even 10.000 songs. I find this very interesting and intriguing. And so my question in this new blog entry is: What is your longest playlist on Spotify and would you like to share it?
