i'm getting ads every three or four songs?....what the fuck?
So unless michael_w is listening to long songs.......
i used to get them maybe every half hour but it does seem to have gone up in the last week or so.
anyone who thinks the level of ads it's had up until now makes the service in any way sustainable... hahaha.
i just want to wiggle my hips to 'not fade away' without getting fwankmusics arse-juice beatboxing ruining the atmosphere before or after
i just dont like the suprise...i was settled with one every 20/30 minutes
Something about Leon Spinks? Rubbish.
much much better. go.
Inferior interface, smaller catalogue.
it's not a lot of money
That's 33p a day isn't it?
this just typifies the 'we want everything for free' mindset. fair enough, michael w's prob skint at the moment in fairness, but i'd hazard a guess that a lot of people using the free service could easily swing a measly tenner a month. you've got millions of records there and still you want it all for free
and I don't mind the ads. So spending £10 a month on it would be a bit silly.
it could feed back to the artists. crazy notion
giving spotify a tenner a month really isn't the right way to go about it.
what percentage of my tenner is going to go towards acts i want to support? And what percentage is going to u2 and mariah carey?
but i'd imagine they get a better deal out of the premium version than the free version. correct me if i'm wrong
The adverts are paying the tenner you don't pay. Or actually they're under funding it so someone else is picking up the slack.
alas i can't afford to buy any music right now, so spotify will have to do.
Who would have ever thought that a free service that lets you listen to a huge percentage of the world's musical output would need ads to pay the artists, eh?
but they're making it seem tempting.....WHAT A GENIUS PLOY....they know how to operate these guys huh?
Sometimes there's an ad either side of a very short song, other times I get huge periods without ads. Still, I'm not complaining. I had forgotten how annoying and cheap-sounding radio-style ads can be though. There's one about some estate agent in Palmers Green that makes me want to punch someone. "COOORRRRR, WHAT A SONG EH??!! MY FAVOURITE IS ELVIS" or something.
especially when they scrobble to my Last fm
i've never noticed it??????
I have scrobbling switched off now, maybe its stopped
but I do remember looking at my homepage and it told me I was listening to an advert for the government online advice thingy
it's like having someone standing behind you scaring your shit at intermittant bursts
i understand the ads and i'm quite happy for them to be there.....but, on conditions.....i want to know exactly when theyre coming.....dont give me 10 one hour and then five the next.....that's what pisses me off....i don't like living in fear...
and it's just the general quality of the ads....they're fucking awful.......thankfully i haven't heard from mr spodify in a while...he fucking killed me. that fucking guy.
and the sound.....i don't see why they need TO GET SO LOUD AFTER THE MUSIC TO GET MY ATTENTION IF I CAN HEAR THE advert i can hear the ad....they're gonna shock the soul out of me.
a delcate voice with a soft accent....beautfiul.....some old dame i'm now imagining driving around europe with when she was 19 and looked like brigette bardot....beautiful.
and forgetting to charge it up last night, I listened to spotify for much of today
I'm now embarking on a determined campaign to find "frankmusik" and shit in his eyes.
Awfully shame that they got rid of all the Bob Dylan though...
i literally just noticed that.....was gonna have a bitch...no Them either......that fat fuck
I AM TRYING TO LISTEN TO BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN. HE WOULDN'T SAY THAT. HE'D SAY I STRAPPED KELLY ACROSS MY ENGINES AND RODE OUT IIIIIIIIIIIIINTOOOOOOOOOOO THE SUNRIIIIIIIIIIIISE *saxophone solo* or something. AND SHE'D BE CALLED MARY-LOUISE.
kiss kelly and you kiss everyone she's ever kissed
get a handjob of kelly and you're getting a handjob off everything she's ever touched.
I don't mind that one, actually.
Amy McDonald has broken me.
can't get enough of the old broad on the right livelyhood award ad......she's a rainbow amongst forks of lightning
it's the initial shock i despise.....i always turn them right down and press play once i've stopped shaking
and then back to the FREE LEGAL MUSIC.
i don't get what the problem is. don't like it? Subscribe to premium or go buy some records.
pff...i dunno. any excuse for a moan, am i right?...yeah, course i'm fucking right.
these fucking pricks. i mean....if you're getting your dick sucked off some tight bit of ass, and alls you got to do is listen to her yapping for a few minutes every half hour,...you keep getting your dick slurped, right?
fucking kids...no respect.
ah, i love AutoComplete
sounds a little bit rude. I'm quite aware it's quite childish.
one album and a couple of cd singles last seen keeping coffee rings off the counter
Well, that's kind of how they pay for the music. Pay 10 quid a month, No adds. which one sounds better?
Basically, it appears that ads are only going to get more common, so that the high-level users out there will eventually all subscribe - particularly when the iPhone app comes along.
So, when Spotify get all this cash rolling in, do you reckon they'll keep all these ads at the frequency they're at?
that is stopping people subscribing.
the idea that most of it will pay for shit music is horrifying.
actually be able to afford to pay some royalties.
It's Murphy here from South Wales...
