This is how I get away with enjoing Spotify and working in the office. I can have a screen open other than Spotify (Work Related, HELLO!) and skip through my tracks or stop and start with out making a big todo about it. Please bring it back! (or at least show me where I can get the old version of Spotify that worked just fine). Seriously, if it ain't broke... IJS!
