Beatles on Spotify; We want the combo “Beatles Spotify”! Vi vill ha Beatles till Spotify!

Beatles Spotify
Earlier this year, I wrote a post about which artists I really missed on Spotify. Then it was Slade. And, I think it still might be. If you yet haven’t, just listen and you will understand what I mean with this.

But wouldn’t it be a nice thing to bring us the “Beatles Spotify” combination? After all, it’s soon christmas, right? 🙂

I sometimes wonder what the artists are afraid of, or what else it can be that stops them from being there? Is it Apple, who finally managed to get them to iTunes, who would protest if you suddenly would find Beatles on Spotify?

That would be kind of funny, since they (Apple Computer and Beatles company Apples Corps Ltd) had a legal dispute between 1978 until 2006.

But what actually makes me more confused is that Spotify just can’t bring in whichever artist they want, and then claim to be a radio channel. As far as I know, an artist can’t really deny to be played on the radio, right? And, the fact that people can ask the radio to play certain songs doesn’t affect that?

So, why not just consider each Spotify account to be a radio show where the listener can wish any song they want at any time? Or, couldn’t anyone think of any real practical differences?

My guess would be that the laws are a little bit unclear on this subject. Technology have moved fast the last years, and a service like Spotify would probably not even have worked 10 years ago. After all, it consumes a lot bandwidth and at least the mobile networks weren’t ready for that yet. But now, when we have the conditions there, why shouldn’t we just enjoy it? 🙂

And a suitable picture…
