I have my playlists set up by moods so that when I am in a certain mood I can choose the appropriate soundtrack...here's what I've got so far:
Rainy Twilight (lots of blues & sad songs)
Eyeliner & Cloves (goth & 80s music)
Road Trip Music
Sunshine & Waves (all happy music)
Watching Snow Fall (wistful indie-type music)
"You Talkin' To Me?" (punk & German industrial)
Plus I've got a playlist that's everything minus my classical music, and one for highly rated songs.
Guilty Pleasures-songs you hate to admit you like, but are so darn catchy

i've yet to master the art of playlisting tracks. i usually like to listen to whole albums depending on what mood i'm in.
Well, atm I do have the following:
- Green Day (what else should I say, simply all songs by Green Day)
- Matrix Beats (Music from the Matrix Trilogy, Games, Trailers etc.)
- My Top rated
- Never played (play count is 0)

- Top 25 most played
- Hard'n'Heavy (Heavy Metal, Hard Rock and other Hardcore stuff)
- In da Club (Hip-Hop, Pop, simply songs you hear, when your're in a disco.
Thats it. I think I'm going to put an "Easy listening" List together, because I need one for my trip to Canada (edit: Which is spelled with a "C", not a "K", stupidass, I spell it wrong all the time) in which I'm about to sit a long time in the plane.
-Top 200 hits - self-explainatory
-The Mosh 2.1 - A playlist of all my favorite hardcore songs (the first one was accidentally erased, hence the 2.1)
-Rap it up - the 20 or so rap songs i like , handy since other than outkast its all just a few songs by a few artists this keeps them all in one place.
-Acoustic - my favorite acoustic songs
-Pay attention to me! - The songs that havent been played in a few months
I like coming up with creative names for the playlists, it's a nice touch to the old pod.
