Spotify Play Button: Music To My Ears

Spotify launched a new feature earlier this month known as the Spotify Play Button. This interactive feature allows any website or blog to include songs, albums, or playlists from the music service on any page. Anyone can listen to the playlists chosen by the page’s author–provided the free Spotify application is installed on his or her computer.

Clearly this new feature is an attempt to increase Spotify’s user base to take on other music services like Pandora. I’ve been an avid fan of Spotify for some time now, and highly recommend the free service to others.

Spotify allows users to listen to a radio station featuring artists similar to your favorites, share your music socially via Facebook integration, and select individual tracks to play when you want control of your music (a feature Pandora lacks). What’s better, none of the music from Spotify needs to be physically downloaded to your computer–it’s all in the cloud.

Including the Spotify Play Button on your website or blog is as simple as copying and pasting a link. Visit Spotify’s Developer Page for more information.

I’ve included a playlist below, “Study Jams” by Andrew Grojean. These songs get me relaxed, “in the zone,” and ready to study for my last final exams of college this week. Enjoy!

Let me know if you have any other great study music that I can add to the playlist, and check out this great playlist too.

See you after finals!

Andrew vs. Magnus: My Game Against the World Chess Champion

One night three years ago, in a bout of insomnia, I went down a YouTube rabbit hole. Videos about the Kansas City Royals led to obscure sports highlights, and before I knew it, I was watching a video from 60 Minutes about the “Mozart of Chess.” The segment followed a grandmaster named Magnus Carlsen — only 21 years old at the time, but already the highest-ranked chess player in the world. That 10-minute segment renewed my interest in a game I had only played as a kid with my dad. Little did I know that, in three short years, I’d be playing against Magnus himself in New York City.

    Looks like a nice little application but I think it should be a standalone player with out having to download spotify.

    Too many music apps running around I’ve taken Spotify off my computer after becomming an early adopter it just didn’t make sense with Google Play Itunes and all

    • I know there are a lot of music applications, Ikohaus Music Group. To me, Spotify meets my needs better than Google Play or iTunes, so I tend to use that more often. It is unfortunate that the Spotify Play Button cannot be standalone, but for those with Spotify, I think it is really useful and neat.
