I just deleted 2 songs from my liked songs accidentaly, and I don't know what they were. Add this feature stat!

It is very desperate to accidentally delete a song from your Liked Songs, but without knowing what song, in fact, it just happened to me yesterday on Android, I don't know what happened to the app, but when I wanted to scroll through my songs it opened the options of a random song and unfortunately I pressed "Delete from your Liked Songs" or something else says the option and I lost the song without knowing what song it was. 

 

Fortunately I was able to know the song that I accidentally deleted by contacting the Spotify support on Twitter, but it took too long, it was an unnecessary process, it is basic information that should be available to all users in their respective accounts. Please make this idea a reality!

How is this not a thing yet? I used the Android TV client and was queuing up stuff. I browsed through the items in the list with my TV remote. The queue option is right next to the "like" toggle button. Since this is the liked list, if the like button is unticked the song simply disappears. One unregistered click from the TV remote in a quick click succession and your song is gone. I just did this, and out of stupidity I clicked the select button again to toggle it back, deleting a second song from the list. I have no idea what song it was, except that I saved a lot of good stuff at that time in the list.

 

Now it seems the only option I have is to request my personal data (which allegedly can take up to 30 days), and then hope for the best. This is really bad. I work with app development myself, and this sort of behavior (close buttons with no confirm option, no undo option, or recycle bin) is awful. I've been a paying user for almost 10 years now. I expect a bit more from you, it is not a very complex feature 😟

I keep coming back to this every other month when I accidentally hit the heart button when I want to choose which device I want to play the music on. 

I do remember which song it was, but I don't want to add it again since it'd be on top of my liked songs again, instead of its original place way down.

 

This problem is so easy to solve, it's really just a small confirm form, like "Do you really want to remove this song from your liked songs?" "Yes" "No".

And if you go all out, you could also add something like a recycle bin or at least a temporary undo button. But that confirm box alone would solve all of my issues with the like button.
