Oh how I love thee, let me count the ways….

  • For $9.99, I can get any song I want.
  • I do not have to purchase the latest Bieber song for my daughter – who will play is constantly for two weeks and then lose interest in 2 weeks and one day!
  • Listening to the cat’s meow Feliz Navidad without owning it FOREVER.
  • Offline listening.
  • Legally allowing my students to make a playlist for class celebrations.
  • Supporting start-ups.

Now that I have completed my poetry task for the day, let me explain. Spotify is basically renting music, instead of buying it (at first I thought it was going to be like the Columbia Record House Club.. boy was my mom angry when I sent away for that … but it is sooo not).

Download Spotify to your ‘puters or idevices, subscribe and let the good times roll. I have searched for and listened to any song I desired, yet to not find a song, I even found an old time Christmas radio show – The Cinnamon Bear – that I wanted to share with my classes.

But wait, Kim.. do I have to stream all this music, what about my data usage. Ohhhh nooo.. you non-believers…you can download your music to your devices and listen to it offline, even setting Spotify to be offline.

Thank you, dear Swedish startup company, I will not have to own Fly by Nicki Minaj for the rest of my life!

    Nah, I can’t get down with this one homie.

    When it comes to music and books I like to own and everything is for free 99 on the innanits.

    In grammar school my principal read “The Cinnamon Bear” to the whole school everyone Christmas! I’ve wanted to find it for my students! Thanks Darche! Keep up the writing!

      I heard it in 8th grade and I never forgot it. We had to draw as we listened and it was such a lovely memory.
