You can use Foobar2000, honestly its just as good but just no Radio as far as I know. Not to mention you can import your local songs or music if you have it. If you want to do that with Spotify I'm pretty sure you need premium, and also there are no ads on Foobar either which is another thing you need to pay to get rid of with Spotify. I wouldn't even look at it as a downgrade to be honest as you can run royalty free music through Foobar and if you should ever need to monetize it for YouTube its good to go from the get go. Hope that helped.
