'Nested' Playlists

Smart Playlists
With a bit of coding, you can create a generic playlist, and several subordinate lists at once.

Say the main list is music you like to go to sleep by. Add 'pm' to the Comments section, then create a SPL that looks for that commnet.

Now- lets say you wanna create playlists for classical, new age, soft rock, etc., all music to play at night.

Simply add a letter to the 'pm' code for each group-
- cpm for classical
- npm for new age, etc.

Create a new SPL for each category.

Now- your 'master' SPL will play ALL of these songs, but you can also break them down to fit different moods!

Just be careful that 'rpm' isn't your code word for high-energy tracks to play during your workout, otherwise you might not get to sleep!

I use the BPM field and put in a number between "1" (extremely mellow) and "5" (extremely hyper) to describe the music's 'energy level'. . . .

I started doing the same thing (putting numbers 1-5 in the BPM field) but was rating it on the basis of tempo, which is what BPM is supposed to be all about - and for me superfast was 5 and mega-slow was 1. But eventually I realised that 'tempo' is not the same as 'energy level', you can have a moderately fast song that's quite mellow or a slow-tempo song that's quite loud and invigorating. I think Scott's got the right idea using 'energy level'; sorting songs out by tempo is not all that useful really unless you were a dj and into re-mixing songs. I need to go back and do mine again.
