    I streamed Gotye before he was well known - Said every hipster on Spotify.

    Why would I need to confess to listening to Somebody That I Used To Know? It's popular because it's a great song. Now everyone go and start smashing some Like Drawing Blood!

      The greatness of the song is debatable. How many of those hits were only because it was popular (for instance because it won JJJs hottest 100 this year), rather than because they liked it?
      Show us repeat play counts and let us decide.

        Isn't the definition of popular already that lots of people DO like it?
