Yes, the simplest thing is what Jesper mentions: contact with any of your European acquaintances (well, from one of the 7 countries Spotify works) to login every now an then. If I reckon, you have to actually login in the Desktop App. I mean, I tried to connect (ssh) to a Spanish server, and from there login to www.spotify.com, but it didn't work... Another option is to "share" an account, using the time difference (e.g.: sleeping in Europe vs. awake in the, say, US West Coast :-) ). Even another option is to use Spotify Unlimited. That's the one I use. I live in Mexico, but travel often to Spain. Whilst I was there, I created an account. Since then, for 4.99eu/month I can use Spotify all the time, without bugging my friends. Most of these options are easier than dealing with a tedious UK proxy server, that -as mentioned- will work only till Spotify notices this worldwide accesses.

Here's some scientific evidence to show that computers cannot predict hits (mainly using audio content-based analysis) - Paul's blog post: http://blogs.sun.com/plamere/entry/hit_song_science_not_yet - The PDF, for those *really* interested in the details: http://www.tagora-project.eu/wp-content/2008/06/hitscience.pdf Cheers!
