I’ve been a Spotify user for 3 years now and although I do love the service in its whole package I’ve never clearly got to understand the use of Spotify’s Radios. So I had to try and experiment with it. I started with a radio channel that was suggested to me. It was the MUSE one in this very case. I then started from it and went along for 20 consecutive tracks without never interfere with the software. That’s where it took me…
Clearly it all started with a MUSE tune. It was Supremacy. Yet, Spotify suddenly decided to let me hear some creepy Coldplay’s bullshit. “Are you fu**ing kidding me?” That is what I thought. But that’s not only that. The software, in fact, thinks I must like Chris Martin’s band if I’m a fan of MUSE. I got 3 Coldplay’s tunes out of 20 songs in total. And that bothered me quite a lot.
Ok, I do not know what you were you thinking at, but I do hate them!
That being said, the strangest song I got to hear was Nirvana’s biggest hit Smell Like Teen Spirit. This has gone too far, right? What does it have to do with MUSE? But I cannot complain too much since I’ve been suggested also Green Day (!?)
But no, it has not been only bad. The lovely Spotify dropped some good Radiohead too. -That was the perfect match I was waiting for. But I also expected Queen, which never arrived.- For the rest no big surprises and no interesting new music as well. That was the thing I was actually looking forward to.
Let’s say if you are looking for a MUSE based listening session you may end up baffled. Though, if you are a big (sissy) fan of Coldplay this would work out pretty fine to you!
