As everyone already knows, at 0:01 on Christmas Eve all Beatles records became available on Spotify. The Night Before.
No. 400 added today. Yasmine Hamdan and Beirut came with a new language, Arabic.
Voltaire: "Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." #Paris #terror
Not much blues on the site. Here's some by J. B. Lenoir, with a new country.
Cat Stevens into revised Finnish hymn book. Not Here Comes My Baby, I'd guess.
So, no more Neil Young on Spotify. I'll keep these two on the site anyway.
Right now 300 hundred artists. Just a nice round number to note. But how about this: only four titles short of 400!
Last night in crowded Tampere Hall, it was Floodin' in California. Now here's Mayall semi-entering the site with his California.
Meillä on unelma – mielenosoitus monikulttuurisen ja avoimen Suomen puolesta. 28.7. klo 17 Helsinki, Kansalaistori.
Neil Young taking his music off Spotify and other streaming services. Gives poor sound quality as reason. These two still play at this time.
Radio Helsinki saavutti (minimi)tavoitteensa 9 päivää ennen kampanjan loppua. Tilanne juuri nyt 101 %.

New! "Related tracks" will gradually be added on songpages. See this popular title for an example. Thanks to Seppo for the tip.
Spotify plays of B.B. King's music went up by 9800% following news of his death.
Tidal, rival to Spotify. Twice as expensive but claims better sound quality. Not planning a move, obviously.
New language, Sami! Gained fittingly right on the Sami National Day.
No. 353 added today, a very nice one by Lucinda Williams! Take a listen.
The year 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.

Songs are now played in full again instead of those annoying 30 sec previews (if you have premium). Spotify had changed the embed code at some point, which I only found out today.
