A "Now Playing" Mode

There should be a button right at the top that takes you to a full-screen viewing mode that you can just leave on as your music plays: it could have a visualizer in the background (perhaps a bit more subtle than iTunes, or maybe one that matches the color of the album art) with the album art, song info, and the songs that are next in the Play Queue. I also think that the Play Queue should be highlighted more to be like the iTunes "Up Next" feature - it should not be hidden in the sidebar, maybe at the top in the big wasted space.

The idea for full screen album art and visualizers have been suggested before: http://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/Larger-album-art/idi-p/112292

Another thought: Spotify could partner with Vevo and show music videos if they are available.

YouTube has exclusive rights with VEVO so that might not ever happen. Unless they make a dual rights case, that could be cool.

I like the idea of having a visualizer or album artwork.  I have also thought of this idea before.  I think it would be a great addition to the desktop version.

I was not suggesting them individually; I was suggesting something completely different.
