I’ve been loving Spotify since subscribing about two years ago, and use the Premium version since it’s included as a free perk from my cell phone provider.
Recently [read: finally!] I completed cross-referencing my iTunes library of over 3000 songs and sourcing them here; finding better quality versions; stumbled upon 100’s of old songs I didn’t already have; was sucked into the rabbit hole repeatedly and discovered many more new songs/artists; and last but not least, created myriad different playlists to encompass eras and numerous genres from the Master Song Folder (MSF.) It’s been a painstaking process, but a labour of love.
I spent most of the past week refining my MSF by removing duplicate songs, and then going through each of my playlists (ie. 60’s/70’s/80’s… Beatles… Soul… Funk… etc.) to choose my fave versions and delete the others. This morning I logged on to continue the process and discovered that many of the playlists I’d refined had tons of songs which were now no longer saved/checked. For example, every one of the 172 songs in my Beatles playlist is now indicating a “+” sign instead of a checkmark. And that’s just one artist. There are many. **bleep**?!
It’s going to take me countless hours, maybe even days, to repeat the vetting process again. I guess it could be worse: the songs could have been removed from my MSF completely and I would’ve been none the wiser until I started to remember some fave songs and realized they were MIA.
I've never experienced this before. Does anyone have an explanation?
P.S. Also, just out of curiosity for future reference, if all songs in a folder/playlist are unchecked (as with my mysteriously altered Beatles playlist),is there a way to save time by checking them all in one fell swoop instead of having to do them one at a time?
