So I just noticed on my complete #1 songs of the 1980s playlist that Toni Basil's "Mickey" is suddenly and randomly greyed out. Yep, turns out Basil is totally gone from Spotify now. Still available on iTunes. Anyone care to share or investigate the reason if they know it? We do know a couple of things: 1. The reason won't be a good reason and 2. We won't get any answer from Spotify (see their huge response to the Andy Gibb question). In this age, when even Prince is now available, there's just no excuse for **bleep** like this happening anymore, things disappearing. And it really is time for the biggest musical douches regarding Spotify--looking at you Bob Seger, Peter Gabriel, Garth Brooks, Def Leppard--stop fighting the inevitable and get with the program.
Yes, Toni Basil is pretty random and pretty minor, but it's another #1 song that I now have to import from iTunes to keep my (fairly awesome) playlist intact. Aggravating indeed.
