    Spotify has finally launched in Australia on the heels of the USA launch last September (after being available in the UK for years).

    Unfortunately as our US cousins discovered - a Facebook account is now a requirement! This was not the case prior to the US launch and users prior to that date are exempt from the requirement. What the fuck hasn't Facebook got its claws into?

    Yeah, it's pretty stupid. I was lucky enough to sign up before they changed the login. But I have a feeling they will require everyone to login with FB eventually. My only suggestion is to create a dummy FB account and use that for the Spotify login.
