Playlists by Mood

For the longest time, I have been assembling playlists for specific moods – not unlike one can get today on Songza or other similar services. These playlists are for my all time favorites by category. This is no easy task, as things change over time – these are indeed very dynamic.

The songs listed in each category are not listed in priority sequence – I’ve only alphabetized strictly to help organize them.
