Yes I want  to listen to Adele's Skyfall.  When I search there are 10's of tribute versions - which are pale imitations.  I'm concerned that Spotify encourage this rubbish as I suspect when you click on one of the songs - the hacker gets some revenue. Spotify you need to remove all this rubbish - it's as bad as Google Play and iTunes.  Otherwise I'm cancelling.

richardajh - There's no hacker involved, these versions are totally legitimate. We want all the music in the world on Spotify.

There are reasons why some music isn't on Spotify. It's all explained here: http://support.spotify.com/uk/problems/#/article/Content-missing

Surely these are not legitimate withTitles and subtitles like "Skyfall/Out Now" or "Skyfall  Radio Version", the hackers intend to mislead the Spotify user into selcting the track for play  and to derprive the orginal artist of revenue.  These pirate track destroy the user experience - making it difficult to seach for what you really want.  It's Quality not Quantity! Sort it out or I cancel.

They're not produced by hackers or are they pirate tracks. They're cover versions. These artists are signed to genuine aggregators or labels. We have no illegal music on our service and would never condone it.

OK I'm not convinced that you want to improve the user experience by removing these tracks so I've now cancelled.

It's a shame you feel that way, it really is. We want the user experience to be as enjoyable as possible, and would really love to have the original version of 'Skyfall' on our service. At this moment in time, however, it appears an agreement needs to be made with the artist or label.

Personally I am not cancelling, but I fully agree with richardajh that this is aweful for the user experience.

 

Let's be honest here, nobody is looking for the cover but we are all looking for the real thing. The cover artists are smart and name the track in such a way that I will play it by accident so they will get their kickback. This is defenately not hacking (maybe 'hacking the system')  but for me as a user this feels like spam and is a waste of my time.
