    Spotify is a music streaming service.

    Streaming works by the provider, in this case, the Spotify company, sending the song file to the client program, the Spotify program. Instead of sending the whole file at once and the user having to wait for the song to download however, small parts of the song are sent at a time, a couple seconds or so. This means you can start listening to the song almost instantly.

    To use Spotify, all you need to do is sign-up on their website, then download the program, install it, then run it and log-in. Very easy.

    If you go with the free version, you get adverts occasionally, but they really aren't a problem.

    Hope i helped... :)

    ps: here is the link the the wikipedia article on streaming in case you, or anyone else, is interested...:
