Scrobbling songs works again. :-)

When I’m listening to music with Spotify-App on my smartphone, the tracks I’m listening to are shown automatically on this webpage in the sidebar. This is called scrobbling: it puts the songs to and then on this page. And this scrobbling didn’t work for more than a month now. Logging out and logging in on my smartphone solved this problem. 😉 So easy, but you have to do it. Have a nice day!

Je suis un Rock Star

This is my summer hit for now.

The Soundtrack of your Life

As a DJ and Architect I’m interested to give space and time for life to happen and to amplify and create feelings with a soundtrack.

One of the books, that impressed me deeply lately is American Gods by Neil Gaiman. This incredible story about stories about gods and men has been converted into a TV-series.

Books have the big advantage over movies, that you can read what characters are thinking. And movies have music.

Apple, bring back the song star rating to iOS!

My music life was so good before iOS10.

I was happily walking and driving through my life listening to music on my mobile devices. Sorting and grooming my whole music collection, making playlists, preparing gigs wherever and whenever I wanted and needed to. It was quick and easy, and I was a happy fanboy of the great inventors of the iPod, which was once a device to listen to music.

Since the update of Apple’s operating system for mobile devices to the latest version (iOS10), the former easy star rating of songs has completely disappeared. I think it is because Apple (Music) wants to know wether you like a song, or you dislike a song, to give you more of what you like, to keep you cozy in your echo chamber or maybe suggest you some really cool stuff from other people with the same taste.

People like me used to „misuse“ the star rating system to put songs of their music collection easily in 6 different categories of their own choice.

My song star rating categories

My 6 song star rating categories have nothing to do with the quality of the song, so this information is useless for data miners:

0 stars – delete? or dunno.

1* Austro Schlager Schnulz ABBA, Boney M, or minimum 0,9 ‰ alc.

2** easy listening nicht tanzbar (Weltmusik hier auch wenn tanzbar) predance 21-23h

3*** dance disco rock (Klassiker) Lady Gaga Madonna Deep Purple (electroswing wenn tanzbar hier) 23-1h

4**** dance house 1-3h 128bpm schnellere Beats

5***** chill out d&b 3-5h

❤️ hearts to mark current favorites or put songs into next gig’s playlist

0 star + ❤️ is for kind of queer songs, that I don’t want to delete because of various reasons

There are many THE BEST star rating systems, which contradict each other strongly, but they have one thing in common.


Apple can you here me? BRING BACK THE SONG STAR RATING TO iOS!
