Six Years of Spotify (Premium)

spotify six years

Today marks the sixth year that I’ve been a loyal Spotify Premium customer! I actually had a free account for about a year and a quarter beforehand but clearly the adverts got to me. I signed up to Spotify way back in January 2009 when it was still invitation-only in the UK and there was this old logo instead of the fancy new one.


I remember feeling awesome and ahead of the curve, carefully selecting my 10 friends to send my email invitations to. The reason I eventually upgraded to Premium actually wasn’t anything to do with the adverts. I didn’t mind those so much back then – they were somewhat relevant and pretty infrequent. I’ve been informed that they’ve gotten worse since the good old days, though. No, I upgraded because – and honestly, this really is the reason – I wanted the app on my phone and you couldn’t use it without a Premium account.

I had loads and loads of playlists – I used to make monthly ones and add a new song every day and people actually followed them, too!

Spotify has really become part of my daily musical life and I can’t imagine ever not having it anymore. It gets just as much, if not more, use than my built-in music app on my phone. Oh, also, I still buy CDs and MP3s before anyone (Taylor Swift) says anything about streaming killing the industry.

To celebrate six years of Spotify Premium, I’m going to share with you one of the first playlists I ever made – and I genuinely remember listening to it all the time on the train to and from university using the fancy offline mode! Hope you enjoy it!
