Haha, yes. I relate. My teacher listens to her iTunes radio, but it is ridden with ads now. I told her about Spotify, and I pay for "no ads," plus an unilimited access to music. It's so much better than any iTunes or online radio that I know. I hesitated to tell her how much I pay: $5/month (I'm a poor college student, that's a LOT for me! Haha). She said, "that's all?!" She knew Spotify when it was still only in the UK. Well, it's change a lot since then - and for the better. 


I enjoy telling people that it's only $5/month for unlimited access with ZERO ADVERTISEMENTS, and I listen to music via Spotify at work, school and home. Of course, it's $10/month for the extra-extra features, like carrying Spotify with you on an MP3 player, etc. But I am very happy with $5/month for the service I use! And always new music added!!


Anyway, I'll stop rambling. :)  Thanks for the great service, Spotify team!! I am speaking, of course, of the software AND the friendly and helpful community!

I love, love, love Spotify!! I am an IT Software Administrator which enables me the abitlity to stream Spotify all day, every day. Yay! I am constantly sharing music on Social Media. As a result, I am sure many new Spotify users have been created. I will do absolutely anything to help Spotify move forward in a positive direction. You can count on me!

I love Spotify! I'm a high traffic Lifestyle Blogger, and #TheOfficialTwitterPartyDJ on Twitter, I have an organic following that follow my updates about Music, Audio Products and Audio Accessories, oddly enough I reached out to you on Facebook today and then found out about the Rock Star Program on your page, I'm constantly talking Spotify both virtually and IRL life and would love to find ways to partner, perhaps an opportunity for a deeper partnership exists aside from the Rock Star Program? I'd be happy to send over a full Media Kit. I have hosted a Twitter Takeover for the Oprah Winfrey @OWNers Television Network, and would love to host one for you guys next!

Stumbled upon your service the other day when a customer asked if our system could attach to their phone to play their music.


Customer then married spotify with their karaoke night and apparently the night went off like a firecracker.


Will be happy to spread the word.


Good service you provide.


Cheers, Paul, CEO Karaoke Party Hire, Sydney
