... As an artist it's quite disappointing when your song(s) are removed from a Spotify playlist, after maybe doing many efforts to get there. Whenever this happens, it would be nice if the artist or label should be reported bout this I think.
I completely understand why this happens and that it is most of the time outside of spotify's control. However, a feature request would be to have a some way of notifying users when their favorite music is removed from spotify. Instead, the currect functionality seems to be to quietly remove that song from all playlists the user has. This is a real detriment to user experience because we might never listen to that song again if we had planned to use playlists to track it.
Seriously?? The most disgusting thing you’ve EVER read on an online forum?? You need to check yourself in SkaterKrisHawk, ya **bleep**. I use Spotify to compile a large list of a few songs from my favorite artists, of those who I already have CDs from to make it easier that changing CDs in my car all the time and when Spotify decides to remove some of those songs, yes I DO get **bleep** off just like anyone does. I have spent thousands of $$$$ on albums since the 80’s and Spotify has made it possible to put all those albums in one place. I pay for premium Spotify so I deserve to get my money’s worth and when they remove songs willy nilly then yeah I will get pissy, so pull ya head out of yur 20 something **bleep** and smell the roses. 🖕😕🖕
This one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever read on any online forum and from what I can assume you are probably a minor.
I have thousands of vinyl records audio cassettes and CDs and im in my 20s.
Artists make barely anything and they only put their stuff on Spotify because of a “bandwagon” and it helps with promotion Spotify claims. Music artists are pulling out of Spotify because Taylor Swift was the first artist to sound the alarm bells and others are following suit. They literally make less then a penny for each song played.
I use spotify for Music I have already purchased in stores or on ebay if its out of print. If you are that enraged music has been taken down, it means you should respectfully purchase that album if you have listened to it that much.
You're an imbecile, plain and simple. If you can't picture a scenario where someone might want to listen to music but not afford to but every god **bleep** vinyl they would need to, there's really no other description for you. Also, this being the most "disgusting" thing you've ever read on the internet is a ridiculous hyperbole and it shows how petty you are.
Artists put their music up on Spotify because they know it's what the masses want and can afford. Being an elitist **bleep** and saying you should only listen to music if you buy it directly is so retrograde and pathetic, it's impressive you even dare say it. Spotify is nothing more than a customizable radio. And if an artist doesn't like it, he may not post his music on Spotify.
Not to mention, it's stupid to think record sales influence artists in the least. Their moneymaker is live shows not record sales. Always has been and always will be.
