Dear Pandora,

I know that we’ve been together for a really long time. For a while there, it was truly something special. You were always pretty good to me, and I will always look back on our time together fondly (Well…the early years). Unfortunately, you’ve recently become unreliable, unresponsive, and (dare I say) boring.

I’m tired of hearing the same 10 songs on repeat. I know that there are more options out there, Pandora…your music knowledge and understanding just don’t seem to get it. When I tell you that I DO NOT want to hear Glee, EVER….you just don’t listen. And most importantly, you don’t understand separate stations. Just because I like a song on one station DOES NOT mean that I want to hear it on a completely irrelevant station. You’re messing with my emotions, and I’m not a fan.

Of course, it doesn’t help that I’ve met someone else. For that, Pandora, I apologize. But Spotify knows me. He understands me. He lets me make my very own stations. He has full albums that I can peruse. I don’t even mind that his commercials are pretty repetitive…because they aren’t as often. And by spending just a few hours with Spotify last week, I heard songs that you’ve never played for me. And I rejoiced.

So for now, Dear Sweet Pandora, it’s over. This hurts me more than it hurts you. I promise you that.

Sincerely,

Me.

  1. I used to use Spotify when I lived in England all of the time, but since moving back to the States I’ve switched to Pandora.

  2. I know you’re right, but I feel like I’ve invested so much time and effort into crafting my Pandora stations that I can’t give them up. I am totally that girl who won’t break up with her boring boyfriend because she can’t stand to see all her prior effort be for naught….

    Somehow I can manage to have an unhealthy relationship with an iphone app. Of course.

  3. Wait! Whaaa, Spotify will make it better? All better? Pandora has hurt me too. He doesn’t listen to me either, an refuses to let me hear what I wants! I hope you don’t mind sharing your new boy toy, because I am going to download that Spotify you speak of now!
