Please share your most creative playlist titles and what they are comprised of.

I am new to the iPod world and digital music players in general. I have created about a dozen playlists, but they are all pretty dull. In other words, they are all things I could easily create "on the go" in a matter of seconds. I don't have anything really creative on there.

Yesterday I was reading (I can't remember where) about a user that had a playlist called "oh my my" and it pulled together all the songs that contained the word "my." While that might be a little odd, I love the idea of making really creative "smart playlists" on the iPod.

So, if any of you have done this, please share you most creative smart playlists and give the details on what songs are included in the list.

Thanks.

Two Smart playlists, "New Music" and "Greatest Hits".

New Music: (Match all)
Year is 2004
Play count is less than 5
Last Played is not in the last 1 months

Limit to 100 songs selected by random

Greatest Hits: (Match all)
Genre is The Best of
Play count is less than 4
Last Played is not in the last 1 months

Limit to 60 songs selected by random

Both Live updating.

Then a third Smart playlist, "Mix" (not very original)

(Match any)
Playlist is New Music
Playlist is Greatest Hits
Last played is not in the last 1 months

Limit to 1 hours selected by random

Live updating.

That way I get an hours mix of new music and oldies, a bit like a radio station I suppose, that I've not heard for a while. After I get all my songs rated I'll be able to tweak it further.

If your looking for ideas, try this great site.

I have a smart playlist called "actually played" which contains all the songs that i have listened to (playcount > 0) and another called "not played" which is quite interesting to have a look at. I've only actually played 996 of my 1917 songs!

I almost feel like deleting songs off my computer is a complete step backwards. Like some day someone will ask me if I have "Shes got the look - Guttermouth" and I can say.."Well of course right here"

Perhaps im just odd for not pruning my collection though.

I made a similar word-in-title smart playlist using the word "Love", that I called "Love" Songs.

Name Me! - songs that have the word 'Track' in them, so I can rename them.
Try me! - songs that have 0 play count and no rating, so I can try out new music now and then.
Watcha listenin' to? - songs that I listen to all the time
What's New? - Song's with 5-stars that I have listened to recently

I have playlists similar to those listed above, as well as some others, but the majority of my playlists are comprised of two separate playlists. I'll have:

Playlist 1
Playlist 1 (*)

The playlist with the (*) will refer to the unstarred playlist, but carve out only the 5-star songs.

So, since some of my playlists are comprised of hundreds of songs, I always have an option of limiting the playlist by playing only the 5-star songs depending on my mood.

What are your playlists?

I currently have a few playlists, and I really want a better way to organise it all..
just wondering what your playlists are and what they contain..

I have

Favourite Albums-contains all my fave albums.
Good Stuff-just favourite songs of mine
Least Recently Played-take a guess :p
Most Played-most played songs, almost the same as 'good stuff'
No Change- a challenge for myself to listen to the full playlist without pressing next :p
Popular-songs that are being played on the radio at the moment
Recently Played-last things played on itunes.


What do you guys have?
