Oh, did I say “plays?” I meant “play,” as in… a SINGLE play.
You see, there are currently four million tracks in the Spotify catalog that have never been streamed through the platform — and Forgotify is on a noble mission to get that number down to zero! They believe that every song deserves at least one listen.
So how are they doing it? Through old-fashioned elbow grease and music promotion muscle? No, no, no — of course not. They’ve got some kinda fancypants linkup.
When you go to Forgotify.com and click “Start Listening,” they’ll scan Spotify’s catalog for lonely little tracks that have never been played, serve ’em up in an embedded Spotify music player, and hope for the best.
If you like the track, you can share it with your friends on social media. If you think to yourself, “there’s a reason why no one has ever listened to this song,” well then, you can just skip to the next unheard track.
I’m currently listening to — and occasionally skipping — tracks on Forgotify, waiting for one of my own songs to come up. It’s scary, sad, exciting, fun.
