Why Spotify Didn't Exist In The '80s

If you've ever sat at your desk contentedly listening to streaming music on your computer and thought, "Man, I wish this existed 25 years ago", stop. You don't. You really, really don't. Watch this video and recant.

BONUS: Jo Luijten of Squirrel-monkey.com, who created the video above also sent us the hilarious image below. As he describes it, it's "a screenshot of Gizmodo in a parallel universe, where Gizmodo was founded in the '80s". Love it to pieces.

[Thanks Jo!]


    Never used Ncmpc++?

    yeh, not bad. But certainly neglected some spacey sort of music from that time and earlier by Tangerine Dream etc. And then there was Jarre...

    Yeah i was so bobbing my head to Take on me.

    Sorry but I thought that did exist? It looks and sounds like an early MOD tracker. Maybe one with less channels but a tracker of some variety. Amiga-bots, GO!
