Listen to the 4M songs never played on Spotify with Forgotify

The service is simple: it aims at getting users to listen to the 20 percent of songs that have never been played on Spotify.

Over 4 million songs of the 20 million or so on Spotify have apparently never been played -- not even once. Now, a new service is trying to change that.

Dubbed Forgotify, the service launched this week and lets music fans stream a playlist of roughly 4 million "neglected" Spotify song. The site uses an embedded Spotify player and runs a program that searches for songs on Spotify with a zero popularity rating, Forgotify's Lane Jordan explained to Time. The program will be run on a daily basis and will remove any song that has been played, even once, from the playlist.

When streaming songs on Forgotify, you're presented with just one track at a time and given the option to share it on social media or skip ahead to the next little-known track. I spent some time on the site and couldn't find a single artist or track I'd ever even heard before. Still, it's a neat concept. Check it out.
