End Obnoxious Music

This petition had 51 supporters


I have one friend (let’s call him Tim) who pretty much only listens to Jamaican yodeling. I am happy Tim has such a culturally-aware music taste, but I don’t need to hear reggae yodeled at me every time Tim and I get in the car together. I mean I only hand him the AUX cord because I am too busy trying to pull up directions and get him to his weekly Save the Earth with Yoga meeting. It’s not Tim’s fault that he doesn’t know my type of music. This got me thinking why can’t my music player start a radio based on both mine and Tim’s library?

            Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Youtube, etc. all collect information about the type of music we listen to. All of them offer the ability to start radios based on a specific songs, artists, or playlists. None of them offer the ability to start a radio based on who I’m with. Yet, most of the time I’m playing music I’m dj-ing for someone who’s driving. It’s not too important what kind of music we play, just that we all like it. After all, music is a social phenomenon.

            This is a petition demanding streaming services to create a way for us to play music for each other without us having to do any of the work. Here are our demands:

  • We want to empower our friends handed the AUX cord who dont know what to play!
  • We want people to stop asking "What kind of music do you like?" and let services that know answer the question.
  • We want our music taste. No matter who is dj-ing.
  • We want advance technology sharing songs we love to people who will love them as well!

If every music service comes together and offers this, we’d never hear a song we don’t like again. Once this petition gets a hundred thousand signatures, it will be sent to the top streaming services.
