Until about three weeks ago, I refused to give in to the Spotify craze. While all my friends were raving about how amazing Spotify was, my stubborn self kept responding by saying how good ol’ iTunes was just fine for me. One day, I was browsing through my computer and stumbled upon the Spotify app that I had downloaded months back and decided to open it. After an hour of scrolling through different artists and playlists, I realized it was time to make the switch. I purchased Spotify premium and haven’t looked back since.
When a friend told me about Discover Weekly on Spotify, I thought it was one of the better ideas of online music services. A playlist tailored to your music preferences, including songs from artists you probably don’t know? Every week? All the work of finding new music now done by a computer for you. How unbelievably convenient!
