Spotify

I'd like to know what have been your Spotify experience?

The service has finally arrived in Portugal.
After 4 days I must say I'm hooked. You pay €3.49 a month so you are not disturbed by publicity and you get every type of music you want 24/7.

I turn my PC ON around 7:00 am and turn it OFF around midnight and I would have iTunes running all day, between radio stations and my album collection. Lately I was only listening radio stations, namely jazz or ambient music to make the trading day a bit more relaxed but I was getting tired of listening the same tunes.

Spotify came at the right time. Now I can choose to listen Kirk Whalum 186 tracks for 16 hours or just hit the Radio playlist and let Spotify work by itself.

Started this Saturday morning rocking with Evanescence and Keane, than turned to blues and listened to Eric Bibb. Rocked again with Maroon5 and decided to relax prior lunch time listening to the late Bernardo Sassetti, a Portuguese pianist. Damn, what a morning

This is definitely a 5* service.

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

I have used the free version for awhile. It is great. Don't know if I would pay for it though. I guess the ads get to you after a bit for the free service.

Well, since we're talking about €3.49 a month, around $5, that is really not an issue. I pay between €6.90 and €9.90 for each album on iTunes and I'm always limited between 12 to 14 songs per album.
CD's cost between €16 and €20. I don't a buy a CD for more than 3 years now and I don't intend too.

I have a huge problem, I love all types of music which becomes quite expensive after a while.
I love jazz which I normally listen too during trading hours or ambient music if I need a more relaxing sound but outside that period I'm all over the place. Sometimes I want to hear Metallica's Black Album or the amazing voice of Amy Lee from Evanescence. Other times I just want to listen to Gene Harris or Philip Glass piano. I also have my east/west coast days where I listen to Tupac, Jay Z, Eminem...

The ads are not a problem if you use Spotify from time to time but if you have it running almost 16 hours a day, man, you start to get suicidal thoughts

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

I have found this site: 8tracks | Handcrafted internet radio | The best free music playlists online where you find compilations created bu users.
It's free and rather interesting what people could put together.

for the paid services I use Rhapsody :: Subscription Music Service: Listen All You Want: Millions of Songs where you can listen to all the new releases and I think its much better to have than the iTune. You can have it as an app on iPhone or Android.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

After a couple of months using Spotify I've just ditched it.

Got tired/bored of building playlists and searching for albums...

I find smooth jazz really relaxing while trading and although Spotify have a never ending jazz albums, their Radio option really sucks, playing really crappy jazz tunes and I really can't bother myself with choosing music while trading.
So now I use Sky.fm services.

Their smooth jazz station is awesome. Jimi King playlists are great.
They have 4 other jazz channels, all great to hear.

Now I use Spotify to hear some album that comes out and if I like it I buy it on iTunes or Google Music.
It's preferable. I end up preferring to own an album than to lease it which is what services such as Spotify do.

What at the beginning sounded a great service, it ended up not giving me what I really needed.

Oh well...

free playlist streaming

Now you can stream your playlists on your ipad, iphone, mobile devices etc. for free. You are not stuck with the channel for that artist. Much nicer.
