Spotify Timeline Goes Back 1000 YearsSpotify is the most popular music streaming services currently available in many parts of the world and the company takes their music very seriously, so much so that the service recently worked with Facebook to created a Facebook Timeline that showcases music that’s up to 1,000 years old.

While Spotify only launched in 2006 and didn’t reach the U.S. until last year they wanted to showcase different music styling of the last 1,000 years.

On the Spotify Facebook page users will find music as modern as Eminem and Frank Sinatra, all the way back to German composer St. Hildegard Bingen who was rocking out audiences way back in 1098.

By simply navigating Facebook Timeline pages Facebook users can have some music knowledge dropped on them while perhaps finding some new artists to listen to for all types of events. 

In many cases Spotify has dropped a link to most entries for an artists’ song on Spotify which means instant listening capabilities with the left click of your mouse.

On Facebook Spotify revealed:

“We’ll be adding more and more huge historical landmarks in the coming weeks as well as keeping you up to date with the freshest and most important music moments of today.”

Spotify announced earlier this week that the service would remain free in the U.S. indefinitely.

Check out Spotify’s new Facebook Timeline, discover some music and then drop us a line and let us know what you think of the social network offering.
