Last week, in the dark hour, I went through my library and built a playlist of dark and or sad songs to help me through the agony that had been the last week or so. Ended up with a 144 song list that I have titled "Dark Tears" . I'm still listening to it, although it doesn't have quite the same feel as it did when I was in the gutter. Still soothing to listen to.

This isn't the first time I've at least thought of a themed playlist. I've often thought to do a nautical list, and often build a playlist of one perticular artist. Just wondering; What themed playlists have others here built? What was the theme? Tell about it smile.gif

It's kind of geeky, but I make up "learning lists." ie...I pick out a bunch of CD's that have tracks I've been meaning to learn, throw them on winamp, and then have my own little virtual session.

Other lists I've made:
Sometimes I'll que up a row of the same tune(s), but by different instrumentalists/styles. I'll especially do this after learning the basics of a tune and when I want ideas for variations, etc.

Also...there's the typical "pump yourself up before a big day" list that we all make before a date/job interview/presentation/etc. Mine almost always has some tracks from the World Pipe Band Competitions, The Bothy Band, and Gordon Duncan.


It's amazing what you can do with a little motivation and a lot of whiskey.

My massage therapist plays music while she works. She prefers instrumental music with no vocals. She also likes Celtic music. I put together playlists of instrumental tunes by Wolfstone, the Battlefield Band and the like and burn a new CD for each session.

I've introduced her to a number of artists that are new to her. This has made the sessions more interesting.
