    Nobody's forcing you to listen to commercial . So if you want to listen to commercial music, you have to pay for it! You wouldn't make the same argument about food, would you? Why should it be any different with music?

    Music enriches my life, food does not.

    but there are also bands like the Railway Children or Daniel Ash's solo album both fomr the 80s that I cannot find on cd..

    So you would spend ££ on a single CD but you won't pay £5 to listen to a cataloge so huge it would probably fill your house?

    NOI wont pay #5 for a service that limits what I want to listen to to only 5 times ever. I cannot afford to pay #5 for anything right now. Ask me again when i win the lottery...

    It doesn't limit you when you pay. The limit is only for the free accounts, if you decided not to upgrade.

    ok stop listening to all music and eating right now then comeback tomorrow and tell us which actually 'enriches' your life more.

    nobody 'needs' to listen to music, but since you apparently 'have' to then if you want to carry on listening to commercial music then you will just have to stump up, pay for it and deal with it.

    the free spotify way was good while it lasted but as that (commercial) Nelly Furtado song says 'All good things come to an end' :p

    I won't pay for it as what I do use it for is so light it isn't worth it. I could probably operate well within their 10 hours a month limit for free users, but the deal breaker is the five play EVER maximum of songs.

    I have a few playlists that I listen to on repeat a few times a week and listen to a random new thing every so often. The playlists I can replicate elsewhere, but it was nice being able to listen on all the machines we own without transferring files all over the place.

    Like most radio, the price I was happy to pay for this was to listen to advertisements. £60 a year is not worth it to me.

    I would pay £10-12 a year to lift the limit on replays (even with the limit on time), but that doesn't seem to be an option.
