    By Genre

    • 60s Pop
    • Bubblegum
    • Indie Pop
    • Indie Rock
    • Motown

    By Purpose

    • Driving Playlist
    • Funeral Playlist (as in, the songs that should be played at my funeral should I die unexpectedly)
    • Work In Progress (recordings I'm working on that need to be listened to)

    Miscellaneous

    • To Listen... (songs I've acquired that I need to listen to)

    By Year

    A smart playlist for every year from 1960 onwards (plus a smart playlist for songs pre-1960)


    Each playlist gets filed in a folder to keep my iTunes sidebar tidy ("By Genre", "By Purpose", etc. This comes in handy for the 46 "By Year" playlists ;))

    Generally either by function (workout, running, party) or by genre (classical, 80's, children's) or by user (Eric's Mix, Kris' Mix, etc.).

    Now I have to ask. Not why, but what kind of Colombian music?

    Some Colombian artists have become quite popular today with people like Juanes, Shakira and Carlos Vives winning grammy's recently, but maybe you're hiding some old school cumbias or vallenatos in your iTunes library.

    (OK. So I'm part Colombian)

    I can't say that I create many playlists intentionally. I have a few specific albums (CDs) in playlists for quick access. I make playlists to create burn lists sometimes. I have a 'Nicks' that I just put some of my favorites in for a random playlist (that being my name). I use Genre for most of my searches.

    Am I the only one who finds this strange? lol

    Although the playlist is for an unexpected event, preparing for such a thing makes it atleast somewhat expected; I'd find that a depressing playlist to have in my library.

    I have one smart playlist called "Music" which holds everything except Podcasts. I hate how the Podcasts are mixed in with the other stuff.
