    It aint a bad idea Spotify...But then again, i've only used it once. If there's a track thats good enough to be heard more than once, people just buy them don't they. Like £1 or just go pirate for some people.

    £16,660,000?..Someones obviously having their pants pulled down for that kind of cash to be involved...Jeez..
