I've started using Listiply a site for sharing Spotify playlists. When I'm jonesing for some new music I just pop over to Listiply, pick a playlist that sounds interesting and fire it up. Right now I'm listening to Svängigt, jazzigt, elektroniskt - which is filled with music I've never ever heard of - but it is really good to listen to while working.

Everyday I become a bigger fan of Spotify. It is just great to have a seemingly bottomless collection of music to chose from. By creating URLs to everything (tracks, artists, albums and playlists), Spotify is enabling sites like Listiply. By adopting standards like XSPF, Spotify playlists will play well with others. And Spotify is fast. It feels faster than my iTunes does, despite the fact that the music Spotify is serving is probably thousands of miles away, while iTunes is serving music and metadata right from my hard-drive. It is not hard to understand why people are going to extreme lengths to get a Spotify invite.


The playlist was created by Philip, one of our engineers, and the title means (literally) "Swinging, jazzy, electronic", though a better translation might be "Groovy, jazzy, electronic".

Glad you like Spotify!

yes, Spotify probably is one of the hardest invites to come by. 5 Months already and still not in, but not giving hope up. :)
