Well, Spotify, it’s been a good run. You got me through the summer, helped me during Fall semester, and now it’s almost time to say goodbye. I hope you understand that I enjoy your service. The problem is simply the fact that you’re not unique enough to make me pay.
Sure, you boast a large library of great tunes. But so do many others, and I don’t think I’m picky enough to care about differences between selections. I know you’ll still give me 10 hours of free music streaming per month, but that’s hardly enough. There’s a chance I’ll max you out every month, right at the beginning, before I move onto another service–but part of me might just cut all ties so I don’t have to worry your limits. I’ll be sure to say hi to iHeartRadio, Grooveshark, Pandora, and Mog for you.
I might be back. I might realize just how great you really are in comparison. But for now, it’s adios. Call me when you make it a free service again.
