Google coos at Spotify

Given that both Google and Spotify are caught in a perpetual dance with the labels, cha-cha-chaing around when they'd rather be launching in America, perhaps it makes sense that they've apparently been having talks about pooling their resources.

Cnet claims:

Rather than launch its own digital music service, Google is considering whether to partner with an existing service, including the likes of Spotify, to power Google Music.

According to a source with knowledge of the talks, Google has told the labels that it has begun discussions with Spotify in recent weeks, though no agreement is in place.
It might all come to nothing, but it's clearly gone far enough for Google to go semi-public about it. I think that's 'we might go dating, if we can decide between skating or dancing'.
