So a million plays required for a measly $500? I don't think mobilising the ILM masses will be enough to get J0hn D that rockstar mansion.

I didn't think that the artist would get much from each play but $0.0005 is shockingly low.

My guess is that record company gets half a cent and the artist get 10%.

Here's a collaborative ILX playlist. just click on the link to get it going. I've called it ILX Feb 09 coz January is nearly over. Have at it.

Here's the Pazz & Jop Top 100 singles list. Only 10 tracks are missing.

both those links give me "playlist not found" ;_;

Me too any chance of a re-up?

I've just re-checked, and both links are valid; indeed, I picked up Patrick's ILX playlist earlier today and added to it, and someone else has added to it since.

You have already got Spotify installed, yes?

mike t-diva, Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:20 (nine years ago) Permalink

no King Crimson

Eh? The first album I listened to on it was In The Court of the Crimson King!

x-post yeah all that's fine, it says "playlist not found" when the link prompts the software. Ah well.

zero learnt from nero (Neil S), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:23 (nine years ago) Permalink

Yeh, I tried the Pazz and Job playlist just there and got "Playlist not found", too. (And, er, yes: I think most of us posting on the Spotify thread about how we use Spotify etc have got Spotify installed ;)

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:23 (nine years ago) Permalink

Er, Jop. Obviously.

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:24 (nine years ago) Permalink

xpost Just re-checked, and there's still no King Crimson. The nearest you get is "The Court of the Crimson King" by 21st Century Schizoid Band.

... fuck me, yes. It's all gone. But there is still a ghost page for them -- put in King Crimson and you'll see their name comes up in the little cluster of artists at the top left. Click and you get a pic and a biog but absolutely no tracks.

That's a fucker, because there was a tonne of their stuff up the other week. I thought I'd seen some other stuff disappear, too -- can't remember what, but I just put it down to not having paid attention. But no, some bands are obviously being taken down. Wow.

Ah bollox, that wasn't the P&J playlist - try this one instead:

Hang on: Mike, are you a subscriber?

... 'cos I can't get any of these shared playlists going. It's either a subscriber thing or a Mac thing, I reckon ...

Yes: I can, Ledge. You Mac or PC?

pc.

Yes, I can see that one, Ledge.
I'm not a subscriber - I'm on the free version.
And I'm PC.

mike t-diva, Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:35 (nine years ago) Permalink

Works on my PC too.

can't see yours, grimly.

Can someone try mine again now? I've just thought of something ...

xpost ... ah! Got it. Two seconds, Ledge ...

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:37 (nine years ago) Permalink

Right. Ledge: can you try again now?

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:37 (nine years ago) Permalink

Grimly, I get "playlist not found" on yours. Weird.

mike t-diva, Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:37 (nine years ago) Permalink

Try again now, Mike ...

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:38 (nine years ago) Permalink

nope. i mean, nope still can't see it

what did you try?

Oh, OK. That's fucking weird, and puts paid to my incredibly simplistic theory, which was: it works when the sharer has Spotify running, and not when they don't.

Hmm.

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:39 (nine years ago) Permalink

Still get "playlist not found".

mike t-diva, Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:39 (nine years ago) Permalink

I've just changed the Pazz & Jop list to "collaborative". Does that make a difference?

Spotify removing good stuff? Oh well fuck spotify then.

Nope: I get "playlist not found" for that link too, Mike.

Curiouser and curiouser: having deleted my own shared playlist, if I click the link, it recreates the fucking thing! This is absolutely fucked-up.

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:42 (nine years ago) Permalink

nope. i thought about that but i managed to get the freakytrigger/popular 1950s playlist which ain't collaborative. xxp.

talk me down off the (ledge), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:44 (nine years ago) Permalink

OK. Another one. Can someone try this?

Well, it IS beta. Can everybody get the FT playlist?

Grimly: nope, not found.

mike t-diva, Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:45 (nine years ago) Permalink

ditto.

Can everybody get the FT playlist?

Nope. Hmmm! I wonder how this actually works (or, er, doesn't) at the Spotify end?

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:47 (nine years ago) Permalink

Ledge: I just tried yours again, which worked before, and it now says "not found". Have you deleted it, or is this further evidence for the fact it's all a bit buggered?

A friend in Amsterdam picked this one up fine yesterday:

my test one is still there. there are a couple of questions about this on the support forums, unanswered; if we 'vote' for the questions they might get some attention.

no joy with amsterdam one. it's fucked, is my diagnosis.

talk me down off the (ledge), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:52 (nine years ago) Permalink

Yeh, that's barking: the only one I've ever got working was your test one, Ledge, but now that doesn't work either.

Had a further Google and there seems to be a lot of this about. There's also an entire site devoted to Spotify lists (go on, have a guess at the URL), none of which I can get to work. Aye, I'll have a look at the support forums.

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:55 (nine years ago) Permalink

Right. I've done my bit to raise awareness of this terrible scourge. I'm off to do something more useful instead :)
