I was wondering if there are any playlists that you have made or come across that you really like listening to. So I created this thread. Here playlists for your music can be discussed, new ones posted - basically anything to do with playlists can go here.
I have two playlists on my system. One is all of Radiohead's singles in order. Even though they aren't a singles band this gives a brilliant cross section of their music with tracks from every one of there albums except Kid A. They are one of my favourite bands, along with Pink Floyd and Pulp.
The other one I came up with today. The idea of the playlist was that is was for a band playing live with the first part, second part after an interval, and the encore track. I tried to get a variation with what I considered faster tracks and slower ones roughly alternating, and with the second part being more melancholic and to be honest alternative/weird then the first. I really tried to give each part and the entire play list a feel. I tried to end each part on a reasonably anthemic track, and start it with a reasonably fast track that would get people going at the start of each of the two main parts. It also contains a lot of tracks I really really like - although they wouldn't form my top 15 necessarily, they would probably make my top 25 if I were feeling bored enough to produce such a thing. Some of the transfers between tracks is a little bit jarred, especially the songs from concept albums (A Day in the Life, and the Pink Floyd Songs) but I still really like how it feels, and I think it realy shows the sort of music I like. Hope you like it too!
