During the A to Z Challenge and my Musical Memories, I offered a sampling of a song or playlist each day in the entry. Now, I'm just a fifty something redneck, but I truly thought that the Spotify app would be well known to most everyone who ventured through.
Some of my comments made it clear that was not the case. In retrospect, I should have talked about Spotify in my theme reveal or in a separate post before the Challenge began. So, I am making reparations now.
Spotify is the best music app or program I have ever used. And I've tried a lot of them! The only one that is well known that I have not used is Pandora. To me, Spotify, even the free version, is better than all the rest for one simple reason: I can make the playlists I want. No unwanted songs, no artists I don't like popping up. And this is great for me!! There are very few artists who's whole albums I like and on Spotify I can cherry-pick exactly what I like and what I want! And I can combine them in any playlist I want to create.
There is a free version and a paid version. The paid version you can listen to offline, and has no ads. The free version has ads and you have to have an internet connection. There is an app you can download, and there is a web-based version that requires no download. There are apps for your smart phones as well. So once you create your playlists you can listen to them almost anytime and anywhere.
Best of all, the artists or whoever owns the rights to their songs get paid! This is not a piracy app. More songs and artists are added every day. For example, I have a Jim Reeves album we bought back in the 60's. At first, I couldn't find these wonderful songs anywhere. But in just the last few months, they added the entire album!
Check it out for yourself and see if you aren't as pleased as I have been since I started using it several years ago: Music for Everyone. And when you get your account created, check out my playlists or friend me. I'm user 1220192312.
There was no compensation received for this post. It is simply a post about an app I truly enjoy. If I ever do make a compensated post, you will be notified of that fact in a similar manner.
