I just want to voice something which has really began to annoy me recently, it's the Local Music feature on Spotify. It's just not good enough for me to want to defer from the use of WinAmp to play my local files.
Local Files Missing
This annoys me the most about the Local Music. Neither Winamp or iTunes have had trouble locating the relevant missing file.
Look at this: How can I listen to this album in full?
And now if we right click 'Open containing folder' on one of the white songs, the structure looks like:
All songs are there. These songs were imported by iTunes.
Also, If I scroll down a bit further,
Big, Big Love now appears! So the same album is duplicated but with a different set of songs available! I've checked, all songs lie in exactly the same directory.
It's a complete mess guys and really needs an overhaul.
What would be a really good idea here is the ability to right click the file and select 'Locate this file'. It's that simple and something which would make my life a lot easier.
I've now just clicked 'unlink this track' on the whole album and now I can't get it back either by dragging it over. Absolutely wonderful.
Edited: Changed the title to make the idea more clear.

Really Spotify? REALLY??!
I know theres another post on these Spotify ideas for filtering spotify ads. Its been on there for quite a while and people are having the same issue as I am. I really am concerned with Spotify. Last year I downloaded Spotify and loved it. I had absolutely no problem with the content of the ads. I deleted it because my computer was too full. I downloaded it again this year and Ive been having this horrible issue with the Trojan condom ads. They run back to back and its very disturbing. I use this to do homework and also I use this in the photography lab at school. I really dont want to turn on spotify in front of my family or friends because this AWKWARD trojan condom ad comes on. And it has these annoying mans voices screaming stupid things about the trojan condoms. I want to be able to share my music with my family, but I think I may have to go back to Pandora. The ads they have arent as disturbing as what I have encountered today. I love Spotify and thats why Im taking the time out of my winter break of homework and Psychology homework to write this. PLEASE consider this idea.I really dont want to have to uninstall Spotify. Spotify please fix this. You may lose many other people because of this ONE AD!!!!

UPDATE: Duplicate Idea.
I've marked this as a duplicate as the idea suggested here seems more related to filtering certain advertisements, although if you intended to suggest that they are stopped entirely, I can adjust the idea here to reflect that.
The idea related to filtering of adverts can be found right here.

I don't know if this is a bug, or if I'm just stupid, but: Sometimes when I start spotify on my iPhone 4, the music that I played last time I opened Spotify is resumed before the app have even started properly. This is quite annoying when I'm at work, and I don't have my headphones connected to the iPhone. Let's say that my colleagues don't always like it when some crazy rock'n'roll starts to play loud. And I have to wait for the app to start properly before I can pause it. I'm not really sure what kicks this problem off, it's not every time I start spotify this problem occurs, but I think it happens when I have force-quit the app to save battery, and then starts it again. Someone else who have this problem?

I understand that you may want to annoy people into paying for ad-free Spotify. Unfortunately there are a few ads that are completely obnoxious - specifially the Esurance ad with the extremely shrill singing about her hair being a mess. Sadly if this continues, we're going to have to go back to our Pandora account... We're a neurology office with lots of migraines... so loud and shrill singling doesn't really work very well. 😞
