It would be really nice if the song currently playing in the Spotify App was visible on the screen so that it could be removed from the playlist without having to scroll around through hundreds of songs or if there was an easier option for removing the currently playing song from playlist. Thank you!

Sorry if i have grammar mistakes, my main language is spanish.
This idea has the purpose that spotify automatically create a playlist of songs from related artists based on a band. For example: I like Blink 182 and want to hear songs from other artists that play in a very similar style,etc. it would take a lot of work to see each related artist and create a playlist with their best songs. so the idea proposes that for example in the band blink 182 there is an option that says "playlist of related artists" or another name and spotify automatically create a playlist with the 5,6 or what ever best songs, or more heard of related artists. which in this case could be sum 41, green day, etc. but this can be done with any artist.
this would help popl to know more bands that play the same style and it is done automatically by spotify following some parameters that are : the related artist and its more heard songs. its a simply algorithm

I'm reposting a comment I made at the beginning of 2014 on an old post. Obviously, since that other post is years old, and 64 pages of comments from others wanting it... Spotify must not be paying attention.
Here is how serious I am about this. I was onboard as a preminum member the first month available in the US. I have now quit my premium account a few months back due to lack of response, and will continue to boycott the pay services until it changes.
I really like Spotify a lot, but the lack of ability to organize playlists (other than drag and drop) is the one things I hate the most about the service. I've been using Spotify since the first month it was available to the US. Since I like albums, I have tons of album playlists, maybe a few hundred. Dragging something down such a huge list is absolutely ridiculous.
Right now you only highlight and drag one playlist at a time, in the side column (best I can tell). When the number of playlists gets large, it is a major hassle to hold that highlighted item at the bottom of the list while it scrolls... forever. All while trying to find the place to put it in the scrolling list, without accident dropping it, or losing place. NOT user-friendly at ALL!
Likewise trying to browse such a list by order things were added is a nightmare.
I want to see at the very least an option to alphabetize the playlists, and maybe reorder or arrange (like icons on a desktop). So you can added a new playlist to the top, then hit arrange by (alpahbetical), and it will rearrange the list. That way it is an option.
Even better would be an editor working similar to file folder systems. A separate window kind of thing, where you can cut, copy, and paste in bulk. At least be able to highlight multiple playlists (with ctrl) and move them all at once.
Whatever it is, DO SOMETHING! "
The addition of the save function was a good start, but the 10,000 song limit killed it. A site with millions of songs, and you put a 10k limit. Does that even make sense when saying it outloud. I made it through saving about 60% of my playlist songs/artists before it stopped saving. A nice start, but still a fail.
Spotify is not catering to your most valuable customer, the serious music fan that likes a lot of music. Working in the music business let me provide some history. Traditionally (for decades past) music was consumed by only about 50% of consumers, with less than half of them making up over two-third of music purchases. Those are the hardcaore music fans.
These days, some 80% of people comsume music. However, a majority are casual listeners. Spotify needs to realize that the 25% of music consumers that once support over two-thirds of the industry collect more than 10k songs, and a key demographic for premium subscribers. For example, my itunes library (mostly from ripped CDs) had 35 days of music in it!
Spotify needs to not only focus on adding unique new add-ons, and get the basic UI working for us hardcore music fans. This lack of organization for large libraries, after all these years, is ridiculous. That should have been taken care of years ago!
Testing... Is this thing on? Does Spotify actually listen to their customers?

I'm not sure what happened but I deleted a radio station that was created from one of my playlists and it actually deleted the playlist too!
:O I was able to recover the playlist but I can no longer add or delete songs on it! Why?
What's weirder is that before I recovered it I could still see the playlist on a follower's profile..
So the playlist wasnt really deleted? Just hidden from my list of playlists..

Collaborative playlists are great, but can be better. Should be easy to.
Because there is no restrictions to whom can edit your lists its kinda risky to make it public aswell to collaborative.
How about making it so the author/user can give special privileges to others. Like it is with facebook-groups.
For example you can give another user full access to change whatever they want, or you could restrict the person to only have access too add new songs, and no deleting.
More and more people are asking for access to one of my playlist that I have collaborative with one other friend. But I don't trust others to not change anything, and therefore can't/will not share this with my other friends. Also you can't really trust it to be public when anyone can change your list.
This would make it possible to keep the list collaborative with the (trusted) friends and also give access to everyone else without jeopardizing the list(s).
If this is something you want, or just even think is a better way of solving the collaborative function - give it a KUDOS :)
