Show cover / karaoke bands after originals

The biggest problem in Spotify is those cover bands. Show those after originals or add another column in search for tribute etc. bands.

 

I see cover bands and some karaoke **bleep**, but really, where are original tracks?

 

Do something toprioritise down in search those "cover bands and karaoke bands or tribute bands" and get original tracks instead to top. There should be option to get those tracks down in search results or to add some filter to settings (by default off). I think almost no one want to listen karaoke or cover band / tribute songs.

 

Search for Modjo - Lady and go to listen those covers and karaokes, there is no original tracks at all.

 

Sometimes when I search tracks, the cover bands are more popular than original one, is this not possible to get real music (original track) up in search catalogue? Also if there is no original track, I would like to see some information about it because I don't want to search from cover and karaoke bands list forever just to find nothing.

Enjoy your music. Best regards, Spotify!

 

There is no need to cover bands or karaoke verisons, just original one!

 

Thanks!

Hey everyone, now you have some options to get the songs you're looking for in search results. Now search results are sorted by popularity. If you're still seeing some tracks you don't want (karaoke for instance) you can sort by album, track, artist to find what you're looking for.

I agree, this needs to be sorted as soon as possible.

 

Having your search results absolutely rendered useless by Karaoke Versions, Originally Performed by, Tribute to, In the Style of, etc. etc. really breaks the experience that Spotify is a quality service. I am paying for the Spotify Premium service and really dont want to see those cluttering up my search results.

 

With all due respect, I dont think its a secret that this kind of material is only added for the never-ending spiral of these services being able to say: "We have 100 million-trillion songs in our catalogue". Please re-consider if the marketing value of being able to say: "We have 100 million-trillion songs in our catalogue" outweights the actual users telling their friends: "Yeah, but 90 million of the songs are useless cr*p". I actually hear this statement all the time from friends trying out the Spotify service, and I think its a shame considering that Spotify is trying to be a quality service.

 

Honestly, an option should definately be provided to omit those from the search results. At least for paid subscriptions.

how is this "implemented"? Sorry you don't have a text->playlist feature here, I have to use a 3rd party one and I get karaoke versions when the real one exists.
