Not suprised nor dissatisfied. After all it is an option and I can't expect that everything is available everywhere for free. An expectation that too many people have. If i wold see Spotify as a valuable option for myself I would subscribe. The best that can happen after pressing the button would be the following:
Only free version available: Open the free version (YouTube)
Both a free version and a pay-only version available: Give the option to open either free or pay version (Which version of the song you would like to listen to? (please select). If logged in, SHS users could have the option to define what should happen in their profile, i.e. make the spSpotify version the standard.
Only a pay option available: Display a message that there is no free version and you are forwarded to the pay version (Spotify) only available to Spotify subscribers.

Maybe Google analytics can help. It pays when running a website to track and update web features that are actually being used by subscribers as well as sporadic visitors. This way you can concentrate resources where they make the greatest impact. I'm not a Dara scientist but you can tell as a product manager I've worked with a few.

Yes, suprised and dissatisfied
I agree with Gath there should be separate indicators. It's a simple UI layout change similar to what Allmusic.com does. The right column has separate indicators for streaming on Spotify or Amazon same could be done Spotify/YouTube.
Also, what are the data analytics on the usage of the feature in the first place?
Same. and good idea from Gath.
It seems that there are strong opposite views. How about the ability to select in your user preferences when the play button should show:
- When there's a YouTube video
- When there's a Spotify track
By default, the play button would be shown in both cases.
