Remember when making mix tapes was cool? Probably not if you’re one of my younger readers. And seemingly not too young either! CD’s were pretty damn popular just as I was in high school. The lovely 80′s! Anyways, on Google+, Zannah has asked about playlists and how we organize them. This got me to thinking how much making these “mix” type collections has changed! Seriously!
Nowadays, we all seem to lump songs by mood or by whatever kind of organizing system we might have. Do any of us even make mixes for people? I like to sort of think I still do. Really though I remember the last mix CD I made for someone. Of course it was for Meesh. I called it The Promise from the song by When in Rome of the same name. I love that song!
Anyways, I found it pretty interesting how people seem to put their playlists in such similar ways. Similar to Zannah, I have playlists based on just about everything. I still make “mix” type playlists. They can be about anything really. That’s why they’re mix tapes, right? I also have playlists based on moods. I have playlists that are coupled together because of soundtracks too. I’m a big soundtrack collector. For instance, I have a Harry Potter playlist as well as a Lord of the Rings playlist. eg. Because I sort everything in my music list by album order, I won’t have all the LOTR in one place.
So, what kind of playlists do you have? Do share!
