[All Platforms][Playlists] Removing Songs from the "Recommended Songs" list

I really like the "Recommended Songs" list for expanding my playlists and finding new music, which is why I use it a lot. The only problem with the system is that I am now at the point at which I have to reload the list seven times in certain playlists before arriving at suggestions that I have not considered and discarded before.

A remove/dislike/ignore button that causes a song not to appear again in the recommendations would be really nice.

This would be so great! "Recommended Songs" is such a useful feature in crafting playlists, but seeing the same songs over and over again that I absolutely will not ever want to add to the playlist is incredibly annoying.

 

From a UI perspective I could see it being added as a new option in the "three-dot" context menu at the right side of the song row. The option text could be something like "Save to Ignored Songs" or "Stop recommending this song".

I fully agree with creator and comments here, I've also created the same idea here https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/All-Platforms-Playlists-Dislike-Recommended-song-for-c... but it was considered as a duplication of this https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/Playlists-Removing-Songs-from-Recommended-Songs/idi-p/... (40 votes) and both ideas were closed. The same idea was introduced here: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/All-Platforms-Playlists-Like-Dislike-Songs-in-Playlist... and also was closed (32 votes)

Moderators, PLEASE STOP CLOSING THIS IDEA and just redirect all interested people to ONE idea. If you close idea, it is impossible to gather 100 votes ! VOTES SHOULD BE SUMMED UP when moderator is closing an idea as duplication !  Moreover, it is impossible to notify all those people interested in closed ideas, that somebody is still trying to push this idea, but as a newly created. 

 

 

I am considering creating of 100 accounts and adding 100 votes for this idea ! It should be developed long time ago! I'am also a developer, and if I could have access to spotify I could develop it myself!

This is needed so bad. How did the spotify devs implement this feature without the option to get rid of a suggestion so I don't have to refresh a ton every time I go back into a playlist? Like you implemented and never used it yourself if?

This is currently driving me mad. The main reason I paid for Spotify was to get recommendations for new music.

 

The recommended songs not only repeat themselves as others have detailed, but many of the recommendations are from decades before the majority of songs in the playlist. It's a strange algorithm they're using.
