Those f@#%@ ice tea commercials with their ASMR pouring sound effects triggered me so bad. It was cruel and unusual punishment to force me to subscribe.

I pay for Spotify for myself, my best friend, my older child, and even, yes, indeed, the erstwhile Mrs. Moriarty.  Moriarty the Younger is graciously paid for by his aunt.  (thank you kate!)

And it's the best money I spent each month.  Music is a profound gift in our lives and I'm happy to help those who I hold dear to develop their own meaningful relationships with it.

I average about 50,000 hours a year.  Great service that would be a bargain at 3x the price.

I'm considering subscribing, but I'd rather not do anything that might lead to Joe Rogan getting money.

Just don't listen to his podcast ever. They look at those analytics.

I love my spotify, love the podcasts, love no commercials for my music. It's one of my few streaming services that I think are 100% worth the money.

The Chuck D podcast about The Clash was amazing. I'll probably sign up.

I pay for the family plan after attempting to share an account with my wife and child.  The algorithm got really schizophrenic.

I have some minor gripes about the app/interfaces, but the service is totally worth the money. Hope the artists are getting their due.

It's worth downloading for No Dogs in Space and Last Podcast but I'm not paying them anything, the app crashes too much.

I'm listening to Spotify as I type this, so I'm really getting a kick. It's a great service.

I like my subscription but can we get a more user friendly interface?

Good luck with that.

I've been a spotify subscriber for a long time but I have to admit the Apple bundle is tempting.

My only hesitation is I didn't particularly like the Apple UI (maybe I'm just too used to spotify) and spotify has been buying IP I like.

I think Spotify literally kept me alive, so well worth to tenner a month.

A big part of this may be google play music being terminated for Google YouTube music. I told them I'd switch if they canceled it and I did. Doubt I was the only one.

I got Spotify Premium as soon as it first became available in the USA and have had it ever since.
I consider it a utility like internet or power...and I'd probably pay double what they charge and not blink an eye.
