Made a fascinating discovery about Spotify… (this is likely common knowledge, right? 🙂 ) … I downloaded it for free onto my desktop from HERE (opened account via FB) and proceeded to put it on repeat (just turning off the speakers when need be) … and left the computer on overnight.
Why does this matter?
Because streaming counts toward Billboard charting, my dear friends.
I have no idea if Up All Night has any chance to doing that but, just in case….
HOW TO DOUBLE STREAM!!!
omigosh, just made another Spotify discovery… I have the app on repeat on my computer at work (opened the account with the Facebook link), so I just figured out how to stream it at home too:
Step 1: Went to spotify.com on my home computer and created a new account with an email address diff. from my FB one. #mwahaha
Step 2: Back on the spotify.com home page, I opened the web player (link in the footer at the VERY bottom of the Spotify home page, see screen capture below)
Step 3: A browser page opens up where I searched for UAN and…again… hit play & repeat (see screen capture above)! turn off speakers as needed 🙂
WoooooT! Double streaming!!!
Now go! Go! Go!

To find the link to the Spotify Web Player, scroll to the bottom of the Spotify.com home page… it will look like this:
Got it goin’!!!! Thanks for the heads up!!
🙂 🙂 🙂
and then from D. himself….
She may be right but hopefully not #upallnight. Glad it wasn’t the pre-concert meal…
I loved all the “looks yummy” comments 😂 ((I live on the border, I know many of these yummy meals)
Hahaha, love how David compares the size of the food to his hand. Looks pretty good! Hope they have a good time in Houston and enjoy all their dining experiences too!
Thanks TOfan, for the Spotify info. I actually did not know you could download it on to your computer. Learned something new and have now done that. 🙂
Coincidence? I just downloaded Spotify yesterday! I’ll give it a try
Spotify also pays artists a very small amount per stream so David gets a check based on the number of streams. That’s another reason to stream, stream, stream!
Thanks, guys! I only wish this had occurred to me sooner but better late than never!
The lovely @taterzen pointed out to me that if it plays 14.634 times per hour, it would take only 11 fans playing UAN for one hour to earn one paid download … just imagine what we can all do together!
When I first started streaming, UAN was at 54,303 plays, yesterday up to 69,171 and now 77,038 (that’s total, not just me, lol)… WOOOOT!
Got it going now! Thanks!
