A few months ago, Spotify released some impressive data. Boosting over one million years worth of music being streamed, 24 million active users, 6 million paying subscribers, 32 accessible countries, one billion playlists and a bunch of other facts, but among the facts sees an interesting statistic.
“There are over 20 million songs on Spotify – 80% of these have been streamed at least once.” Which leaves an astonishing +4 million tracks never seeing the light of day. Take a look at Forgotify.com. This site searches through the unplayed tracks of Spotify, and bring them to you. Some of the finds may interest (or disgust) you.
“We love music.
That’s why we were so shocked to learn that 20% of Spotify’s songs (4+ million) had never been played. Not even once. A musical travesty, really.
So we set out to give these neglected songs another way to reach your ear holes, and Forgotify was born.”
