I am putting together a playlist for bar exam preparations. I am looking for songs that will help ease the pain of studying and have compiled a few from a range of genres. What else can I add to this to make it the ultimate inspirational list of songs?
Here are some that I have already chosen:
Isley Brothers - Work to Do
Jay Z - 99 Problems
LL Cool J - Mama said knock you out
Beyonce - Run the World (girls)
David Bowie - Under Pressure
ODB - Got your money
Fugees - Killing me softly

We need a new Official 5K Theme Song for 2013. We are two adults and a bunch of other people's teens who go to 5K races on the weekends. The first race of the season is upon us tomorrow, and we need the song that will get us up and moving and ready to run. But not just any running song. Special snowflake details inside. [more inside]

I am looking for inspiring songs about being in Space, or Space Travel, or even just Science! in general. I want to make a playlist.
The only songs I can think of right now are Space Oddity and Rocketman, both of which are awesome songs but also completely depressing. I'm looking for songs that are more uplifting and inspirational.

I'm looking for mostly pre-2000s stuff. Not dancy necessarily, but very happy, poppy, stuff that you could dance in your seat to. So far I have;
Hall & Oates - You Make My Dreams Come True
Stevie Wonder - Signed Sealed Delivered
George Michael - Freedom
Cheesy is fine, if not encouraged.

Looking to make a playlist of songs that are about or reference the Crucifixion. Not looking for specifically religious songs, though I could see some gospel going well in this mix. References can be direct or very indirect. E.g., I'll take passing use of the word "Calvary", etc. [more inside]

Please help me thrill my 4 year old daughter with suggestions of songs that have the singer saying "Hey!" more than once.
She told us awhile back that she loves songs that have "Hey!" in them, so I want to make a playlist of "Hey!" songs. The "Hey!" should be punctuated and repeated at least once - preferably more than once. The songs don't have to be songs for children, but should be at least semi-appropriate for 4 year olds (i.e. profanity is out, but innuendo that they won't understand until they are much older is ok).
Some examples of stuff that we already have: "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" by the Beatles, "She" by the Monkees, "Get Off Of My Cloud" by the Rolling Stones, a couple traditional Greek songs. Any genre or time period is fine!
ULTIMATE FOUR YEAR OLD HEY! PLAYLIST - GO!

Advice sought for upbeat Classical music to listen to when studying. I seem to really enjoy the violin and the cello. I like some of Yo-Yo Ma and the Red Violin soundtrack. But, I do not like the classical music that is depressing and too slow -like some of the baroque. I am looking for the type of classical music one would hear in ballet. The kind that inspires and lifts you up, and makes you happy...that is simply beautiful. Do you know what I mean Hive Mind? Thanks!! So please give me a playlist

Playlist-filter. I've been listening to this song on repeat and I want more like it. Spooky-southern-gospel-rock type stuff. I know there are some ghost-story songs out there that would apply. Delta Rae - Bottom of the River

I want to be able to upload MP3s to a server and then play those audio files in a playlist on a website. I know one can manually link to each audio file. but it would be great if there was some online software that would display the audio files in a good looking playlist. What are the options, both free and cheapwise?

Inspired by this thread
, from which I got Dan Mangan's Basket
, and Chocolate Genius' My Mom.
I'm composing a playlist as a mediation on my parents, and I wondered what other songs others thought of when they thought of Mom and Dad.

I put 20-100 songs into Windows Media Player (for example) and engage the "shuffle" or "random" play function. Many times the resulting generated playlist really, really, works, and I would like to save this playlist to burn a mix CD or just to replay later. Is this possible? With any program that you can recommend? [more inside]
