I was reading The Sunday Times today and read an article about Spotify, a website which is like a music library or a jukebox. It has only been around for a month and it is already very popular with music lovers. I had heard about it from two of my colleagues but until today had not tried it myself. After 5 minutes setting up an account (which was free), I was happily navigating the site and building my own music library – it was so easy. You cannot download the music but you can listen to the whole song for free and create your own playlists – great to listen to your favourite songs and discover new musical tastes.
I’d really recommend it. To try it visit: www.spotify.com.
