    Spotify

    Anyone here going to try this music service? It has been huge in Europe and is now live in the US, as of today. It's supposed to be great.

    I signed up for an invite a while ago to try it out, but I'm not sure I'm going to splurge for the monthly service...I hope they have a free trial.

    Spotify has landed in the U.S. Sign up to get your invite now - Spotify

    Instead of playing songs it thinks you might like, you can play ANY song you like. There are a few holes in the catalog of songs, but not many.

    It's awesome. Use it while you can, because soon they will start limiting the free version.

    Re: Spotify

    Spotify is freaking amazing! Been using it awhile because I cheated to get an account before it was out in the U.S. and you can use the same method for getting an account.


    • Go to proxy.org
    • Pick a UK proxy (marked GB)
    • Go to spotify.com
    • Make an account
    • Download the client

    Works like a charm!

    I've been messing with it a little but I don't see how it's better than Slacker Premium unless you somehow get the Spotify "premium" for free.
