Playlist Please...

MusicFilter: Looking for website or databases that show dj's set lists or peoples playlists based on various factors?

Looking for best music song lists by different factors:

- Genre
- Style
- Occasion
- Location
- Mood
- Specific DJ's
- Time
- Sing Along To
- Other Neat Factors

Not just looking for recent music, but stuff going all the way back to early 1900's. I know there's no one stop playlist grab, but looking for something better than just best hits of the 60's, 70's, 80's, Big Shiny Tunes, etc, (these are good as well) but they tend to be limited to only labels and artists that agree to have the songs used for the cd/record vs. being the best and most popular for that category.

The billboard charts are fairly useful as well, but it doesn't always say if the song lasted as a golden hit through the ages.

For the dance / tecno world BBC Essential Mix some of the best playlists for specific DJ's since 93'

Also, on a side note, It would be neat as well if people shared their playlists for the cd's they made for the metafilter cd swap.

MixesDB was just posted the other day, might cover part of what you're looking for. I have never seen any criteria for "mood," "sing along to" or "other neat factors" in any music site. I'm not sure what you're looking for in the early 1900s, but commercial radio (much less entertainment-based) was not even really a thing until well into the 1930s. The Billboard charts did not exist until the mid-50s.

What do you mean by "it doesn't always say if the song lasted as a golden hit through the ages?" What is a "golden hit?"
