Thanks for providing your feedback on this feature.
We just wanted to clarify that the following is expected behaviour on the free version on mobile:
If you have less than 15 songs in your Favorite Songs, we'll add more songs.
You will see a message telling you that the extra songs were added by us, but they can be replaced by adding more songs.
If any of you are experiencing something different to this, let us know and we'll look into it further.
If you would like to suggest a change or improvement to the app, we invite you to create an idea in the Community by going here (there is a similar existing idea here, but I don't think it's the same as the one you're after). You can get other users to vote for it, and the more votes it gets, the more likely it is to be implemented in future.
Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any other questions regarding this feature - we'll be happy to answer them.
Take care :)

If you appreciate my answer, maybe give me a Like.
I thought it was just me that didn't know how to operate the phone version, but I now see that everyone has the same experience. I accept that the free version has to be funded by Adverts. But I want to listen to MUSIC OF MY CHOICE, not from some crappy algorithm. If you don't fix this issue I'll be unlikely to use Spotify much if at all.
Very bad answer. The whole business model is designed to push users towards Premium. I'm happy to accept adverts in the free version. I'm not at all happy to have some crappy algorithm selecting songs for me.
I'm having the same issue with the creating of my own playlist and spotify adding songs to it. If the playlist only actually contains my songs why are the spotify added songs the only ones I get playing?
So being new to Spotify I was surprised when I saw music added to my list to. I have only one playlist at present, and it was meant to contain songs only from “Breaking Bad” I have been watching the episodes and Shazam’ing the songs I like, only for it to be ruined.
From I’m what I have just read on these thread pages I have been deterred from a subscription.
