    Re: News - Official UK music streaming chart to launch next week

    What utter tosh.

    Might as well have a "heard it on the radio" chart as well.......

    in fact, I do wonder why we still have a music chart at all any more.

    Re: News - Official UK music streaming chart to launch next week

    I lost interest in music charts when they started to base them on iTunes sales.

    That said, my "music taste" doesn't run to any of the list above - heck I've only heard of half of that list. I'll be interested to see if Slash's new album makes it into those charts when it/they launch.

    Wonder if the music companies are going to try to "game" this chart the same way that (so it's claimed) they did the normal music charts.

    Re: News - Official UK music streaming chart to launch next week

    @crossy - I don't think I even recognise half of the list - Then again I am getting old - I'll be 31 in two weeks and I tend to prefer stuff from before I was born!

    With regards the story - I only ever used spotify free until I found I could get deezer mobile free on my new mobile contract (orange swappable) and have used it since. The thing is I only really use it to help me concentrate while coding at work...

    You're getting old? I'm half as much again closer to death/retirement - that makes me officially "ancient". rofl.

    Interesting article because I hadn't come across We7 or Deezer before - I'll have to have a closer look. And they seem to do "proper" music too.

    Wonder why Last.FM isn't on the list of stations - or has that become old hat/"so last year"?

    @crossy - I think Last.FM is classified as a radio as you can't choose the tracks you want - just an artist and it creates a playlist for you. Deezer mobile is free on orange contract with a swappable (panther only I think?) which is a nice bonus. By the way I don't think 31 is old I'm just commenting on the age music charts are aimed at!

    Good point - doh! I shoulda thought that one through.

    Three used to do Spotify Premium with some of their plans (although not the one I'm on) but according to the comments on their blog they dropped that - presumably because of the load on their network.

    I cannot stand half of the artist on the list and some charts made up by some ''smart'' guy/girl even less so.

    Anyways, I used to have a subscription on lastFM but their library (even year ago) didn't quite cut it.
    On the other hand, Grooveshark is not on the list either but is IMO the best one so far!
