My system

Smart Playlists
First time poster. Long time user.

My system is fairly straight forward. I have over 3300 tracks. I use all the criterias iTunes offer, even grouping for very specific stuff like female singers, british groups, guitar heros, etc...

1 star, least favorite. 5 stars most favorite. 0 star for songs that are fillers (those weird 30 seconds tracks with no purpose except in the context of an album.)

BPM goes from 1 (soft music) to 5 (fast gym music or hard rock and roll songs)

I have two major smartplaylists:

1. A wakeup call (early morning music):
3 stars and up
BPM of 2 and less
Limited to an hour 
(which is flexible depending on my schedule)

2. Daytime (I use at work)
1 star and up
Limited to 4 hours
Genre does not include Classic
Genre does not include Disco

just wanted to say thanks loads for this brilliant BPM idea that rates not likeability (as ratings do) but intensity (slow/fast, soft/hard) ... it's taking me a while to BPM-rate my library but it's worth it! now i can truly make playlists that reflect the mood i want.

I strongly agree with nyorker.. I think that's brilliant.
