    Spotify would be getting a lot more subscribers if it would just release their service in more countries.

    Notice the absence of Taylor Swift and Justin Beiber? Taylor pulled her stuff off and it made news, I don't keep up with Justin's stuff, but maybe his stuff isn't on there either. I wonder how the Spotify list compares to the list of money made on tour by artist. I'd guess there are few notable differences, and we shouldn't conclude that high spotify popularity belongs to the most popular musicians.

    Thank you Justin Kahn! Before I was pretty sure I didn't need a streaming service, and now I'm 100% positive.
    I was in a music store a while back, and spied a songbook entitled, "Taylor Swift, Easy Guitar". I wondered to myself what other kind of guitar Swift could possibly play.
