I made this a few days ago while brushing up on my UI/Photoshop skills. I wasn't going to post it anywhere until a friend mentioned it might be of interest to other Spotify users.
The idea came about, after I kept maximising and minimising Spotify just to see my play queue and sometimes jump down a few . This is my solution making it a less obtrusive way of seeing what's coming up and track jumping.
I'm sure there are lots of limitations as to why this can't be made into a real working taskbar item, but any feedback is still much appreciated.

There is plenty of room on the spotify top bar between the search field and the profile name - what about a modifiable tool bar so we can pop our favourite places on there - for instance I would really like a quick was to get to the Last.FM "now playing" page - particularly as this is the ONLY place on Spotify where there is any artist or album information at all!!
