If you're on Facebook and you haven't heard of it, it is a searchable music app that allows you to listen to entire albums, make playlists you can play any time, and likewise allows you to share playlists or songs with other FB friends who have Spotify (or not- ha!). The selection is fabulous- the latest albums, plus older and vintage music, in every genre imaginable! There are a few commercials on the free service, but for all the excellent music you get to hear, that in some cases you wouldn't get to hear elsewhere, it is worth the occasional commercial. So far, there is very little I cannot find, and I enjoy playing along (:

 

I don't think they have it for Ubuntu/Linux yet, which is a bummer, but I'm sure the Launchpad folks are working on a version.

Ya, spotify has been around for a while in Europe but not here. I'm glad that it is available in the US too now. Great success birthday_balloon <-----(sounding like Borat)

There are no login options besides FB - they will let you create a new FB account, but not log in any other way. FB has caused some major problems in my house and I refuse to be a part of it.

I am not a huge fan of Facebook either. They have Twitter access too.

To me it's just another app that takes away income from song writers. Guess I'll go back to giving tattoo's and being a street musician for cash. People just want a freeride nowdays.

You got a point, MGN.

FB itself isn't the problem, it's the way some people use it to stir up bad feelings - people will say things online that they would never say in person, getting some kind of thrill (I assume, or they're just a**holes) out of watching the ensuing train wreck.

You are definitely right MGN. I deal with that constantly, however I have adapted the proverb, "If you can't beat them, join them".

I live in a state with the "Right to work" law and am vice president of AFM-655. Trying to get people to sign CBA's is like pulling teeth. Now a days people are afraid to ask for what they are entitled to in fear that they will not get work. I guess it is the same with free music.

Tattoos are in but not much money in street playingrofl
