My Question or Issue
For certain songs (for example, Bezardee), Spotify on PC offers the msg "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it." (On my android phone, it simply skips the song). It refuses to play the song in other playlists as well. The songs span several artists and genres so it doesn't look like a copyright issue. The problem, in different forms, is occurring on both PC and phone, so it seems like the Spotify server has something going on. I've tried various solutions (there are a lot of posts about this topic, both in Spotify and elsewhere...) like deleting the local files. bnk file, hardware deceleratioin, etc... so far, nothing works.
UPDATE: Spotify support has gotten in touch and asked me to log on to the test account I've read about in other threads. I logged on and sure enough, in the test account I can listen to the songs that are marked "Spotify can't play this right now" in my own account. No solution forthcoming yet, nor any explanation why this happens. We'll see if support continues to follow up.
