Aladdin Sndtrk missing tracks

It seems that all of the Robin Williams tracks from Disney's Aladdin soundtrack are unlisted on the album / unavailable. I'm sure there is some simple "contract issue" or something and I'm not expecting anything to be done about this - but I just wanted a place to bitch and this seemed more productive than opening a Ticket. Dammit - I wanted to listen to Friend Like Me.

Not every album or song is available on Spotify. Some artists and music labels choose not to release to Spotify.

 

The only thing Spotify does is upload the music that is sent to them. You can find out why some songs/artists are not on Spotify over here.

 

Some music labels only release to certain countries while blocking the release from the rest.

It's all about who owns the rights to the music and where they want it released to.

Music would be better if labels didn't block their releases from certain countries, but sadly this is how the music business works.

I noticed the same thing. They were there when I originally grabbed the album a few months ago. Those were great songs. Hopefully it's fixed. :(

Robin Williams was an amazing man and did an awesome job potraying genie in Aladdin. Yet when i go to listen to a song that he sung in Aladdin, the song wasnt available and i was left dissapointed. I just want to point out to spotify and whoever spotify is fighting over this song with that Robin Williams would have wanted us to enjoy his music even after he's gone. I enjoy the Aladdin the soundtrack as well as many other people and the fact that people want to fight over the song rights is stupid, why not let people still enjoy something Robin William made even after he has past away. 

                                                                                      - I'd like a repy from spotify.

My Windows phone uses the official Spotify app, and when I searched for Never had a friend like me, it was listed in a playlist for the original motion picture soundtrack, along with Prince Ali. But when I tried to add them to my playlist, it said the song was added, though it didn't show up. Everytime I tried to add it, my total song count went up on all my devices, and when I searched for the song on all my other devices, the playlist contained all the songs but Friend Like Me and Prince Ali. So, both these songs were originally on Spotify, but now their hidden.

Its not just Spotify. Apple music's 'Aladdin' soundtrack has the Neyo version, but not the Robin Williams version. Haven't figured out why, but I'm guessing its a legal dispute.

The thing that makes it so weird is that those songs use to be on Spotify, it's the same with Apple music/iTunes but they have been taken off for whatever reason. Pandora will still play Robin Williams songs such as in Aladdin but no where else seems to now that he's dead and it's upsetting. For some people listening to his songs are uplifting and even a way to honor him. I feel like it's something that needs to be fixed on Spotifys part.
