The Hot Sardines – love it!

Spotify flagged up The Hot Sardines in my ‘Discover Weekly’ playlist a few weeks ago and it was love at first sight. Or listen… you know what I mean.

Here’s my fave so far – a super-upbeat version of ‘Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen’. A lifetime away from the more mushy and shmatzly versions you may have heard in the past. And the video? Gets me wanting to jump up and dance.

Spotify has been bang on with great recommendations over the last month. I’ve discovered fantastic new artists from around the world and even a brand new album from my old favourites, Pink Martini.

Bravo, Spotify. Bravo.

RIP, Apple Music.

    Gosh, I recently had the opposite happen to me. I was recently looking at how well connected Spotify is with Planet IoT, and looking back at Apple Music on its sleek white pedestal, aloof; alone. So I re-enabled my dormant Spotify account and started browsing the app. Two hours later I was back on that white pedestal, arm in arm with Apple Music and vowing my fidelity for ever more. I listen to a lot of ambient, drones, some classical and some electronic with a little 80s pop and opera thrown in there. I went looking for about twenty tracks / albums, and found all of two on Spotify. Sure, I’ve added so much stuff up to my Apple Music account, but there you have it – why would I start again elsewhere? I’m not that insistent on my music library talking to the rest of the planet!


    • I think it really comes down to music preferences. I’m the Spotify user in our home, my other half prefers Apple Music – simply because he can get all the music he wants on it. I’ve found Spotify makes better music recommendations for me – but it’s definitely not for everyone.
