Just in time for the weekend comes an interesting cocktail party factoid, courtesy of the fine folks over at the Radio and Internet Newsletter (RAIN): 20 percent of Spotify’s catalog, or about four million songs, haven’t been played a single time. RAIN writer Brad Hill got the number from a recent Spotify infographic, which obviously put a slightly more positive spin on it, but he also had an interesting suggestion for shrinking this online music nirvana: gamify music discovery, and reward folks who play a song for the first time.
