Ears and years

As Apple gets ready to take on the established streaming services with its new musical moves, Spotify has created a clever feature called Taste Rewind that acts as a musical time machine and shows users how the music of the past has influenced the music of today. 

While there are only three country options to choose from—USA, Germany and the UK—users choose three artists they like from the present day and it offers up a selection of similar musical options for each decade all the way back to the '60s. And as well as expanding your musical mind, it might also give you something to talk about with your in-laws, or your neighbour, or your mechanic during those awkward silences. Take that, Apple Music.
