Adding Notes to Songs

One thing that I think could really make Spotify better is a way to add notes or a user description of sorts to songs once they're added to a playlist.  For example, I created a playlist called Trailer Tracks that has a number of songs featured in popular movie trailers.  However, there is no way for me to tag each song with the trailer it was featured in. 


A way of doing this, or allowing the admin of the playlist to add a description of why a certain song was added or what it means to them could really add a new twist on Spotify and take music sharing to a whole new level.

I'd like this functionality added to general albums, not playlists. I like to write reviews for albums I listen to and would like an easy way to reference my thoughts in once place. would be great if that place was in Spotify, so at the end of the year I can review all the albums I listened to and see what my comments were. 

Yeh for sure...nice to hear from you Mazaliya. Where are you from and what do you do? You’ve got sic taste in music

OMGEE y'all take it offline plz.

Idk what any of yall are talking about right now but @__spo__ please implement this feature, ease my misery

Music is great! I like this!

 This would be a great feature for artists to study their influences


This is a great idea! I'm currently working on a biographical compilation of some of Mozart's pieces. It'd be great to be able to add notes to each piece as to why it's in the compilation. For example, String Quartet No. 15 in D Minor, K. 421: II. Andante was written while his wife was giving birth to their first son. It'd be great to to be able to add notes about how the music reflects that moment in his life.


I also like creating compilations of music I think a fictional character would like, and it'd be great to be able to tag the songs with fictional notes.


Love Spotify, by the way. Happy it exists.  :)
