A free pass for Spotify to give away

by backpackingbongos

A quick diversion from backpacking dribble………………

Over the last three months the way that I have been listening to music has changed dramatically.  I joined Spotify and signed up for a premium account.  This allows me to stream pretty much any album that has been released (there are some glaring omissions though, for example Pink Floyd) through my home computer.  My tastes are pretty eclectic and I have managed to find nearly everything I have been looking for.  This has been handy for getting to know bands I have never heard of that are playing a festival I will be attending in the summer.  The main reason why I signed up for the premium service is that you can cache over 3000 tracks onto your iPhone to use offline.  I now have a constantly changing music collection that I can change on a whim and listen to without an internet collection.  Great for a long car collection.

There is a free edition that allows the user to stream the entire collection onto their computer, the only problem is that you need an invite credit to sign up.  I have a free credit to give away.  If you fancy it just leave a comment saying what album you would listen to if you won.  I will pick the album that I like the sound of the most.
