Hmmm ... I think that's cheating!    :)
That's not cheating, that's Golden Eyes by Arai Akino.

🔔🔔🔔 A great song!

🤣

Many (most?) of my playlists are based on criteria such as these. Here are my "title-based" playlists:

I've been trying to get more into using playlists.
How do these work? Do you base them on the <Title> tag, or like @psychoadept said, the criteria is based all on <Keywords>?

For the most part, mine are auto-playlists with some manual additions as necessary. They are based on keywords and/or words in a title.

For my "Names" auto-playlist I use a keyword (names) which I set up as I add tracks to my collection. This of course is tedious at the beginning, but once the bulk of them were done, it's just a matter of remembering to add new ones as they come along.

This gives me 183 tracks like these:


For auto-playlists based on the title, I use my limited understanding of RegEx so that this

automatically gives me any titles that have "day" or "night" in the title while -not- adding any titles that have a day of the week - SunDAY, MonDAY, etc.
This gives me 460 tracks:

Alright, I'll chuck in a go just to give a few more songs for people to play with - mostly thought up by looking through covers for albums I've got complete copies of and thinking of songs that jump out. Tried to steer clear of obvious suggestions to make lack of repetition easy for future players! For those interested, some YouTubing will be required as these are most definitely not all on Spotify

* Something to wear - The Band Wore Blue Shirts - Joe Jackson
* Place - DisUnited Kingdom - Carbon/Silicon
* Animal - Grey Seal - Elton John (either the 1972 re-recording from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road or the original B-side version)
* Number - 2000 Miles - Pretenders
* Colour - Blue Heaven - Public Service Broadcasting
* A girl’s name - Alison Gross - Steeleye Span
* A boy’s name - Romeo's Waiting - Billy Idol
* Profession - I Am the President of Your Fan Club (And Last Night I Followed You Home) - Cancel the Astronauts
* Day of the week - Black Monday - The Union
* Body part - Make My Heart Fly - The Proclaimers (or if you can find it, the version from the Dundee cast recording of Sunshine on Leith)
* Food - Bombay Sapphire Coma - The Crimea (it's a drink, but that counts I reckon!)
* Something Sweet - Warm Sweet Breath of Love - Horslips (you could argue this one is tenuous, but it's got sweet in the title!)
* Weather - Stormy May Day - AC/DC
* Family - Mother - Louis Barabbas and the Bedlam Six (again, 2014 re-recording or original single)
* Christmas - All I Want is Truth (For Christmas) - The Mynabirds
* Winter - Snowflake - Kula Shaker

And I'll add a category in too, cause why not

* Celebration (non-Christmas) - Halloween - The Gaslight Anthem (either the original fan club single or the 2014 re-recording)
Bold words in my posts are links unless expressly stated otherwise. Have fun with them!

WOW! I think I've been stuck in the sixties and seventies too damn long. I've not heard of a single one of these. I will be spending a good amount of time YouTubing tomorrow.

Thanks Pingaware for broadening my horizons.

FUN and frustrating in that I'm finding SO much that I have not added to my now-I-know-barely-medium-sized collection! I'll be Spotifying a lot in coming days. And borrowing.

First ones that came to mind, as requested: learned Lucille is not in my (now lame) MB BB King collection. May only have it in LP form. Oh maaan...

I did have to search my collection for an artist among my Bye Bye Blackbird versions, and to Bing for the spelling of Fabares.

* Something to wear - Famous Blue Raincoat, Jennifer Warnes
* Place - Ray Charles's Place, Duke Ellington
* Animal - Bye Bye Blackbird, Ben Webster & Oscar Peterson
* Number - Y Nos Dieron Las Diez, Joaquín Sabina
* Color - That Old Black Magic, Herb Alpert & Lani Hall
* A girl’s name - Lucille, BB King
* A boy’s name - Johnny Angel, Shelley Fabares
* Profession - Piano Man, Billy Joel
* Day of the week - Sunday Morning Comin' Down, Kris Kristofferson

That was fun! Thought of, recalled so many Sundays, blacks and blues, etc..
