Neat article on making that memorable playlist.
The Ever-Important Order
The order of a playlist is most important after the content. Try to think out of the box. This doesn’t mean putting heavy metal next to heavenly jazz, but rather trying to build up to a climax and then descend to an ending. This might mean putting your songs into a list and switching them up randomly until you get an idea for what might come first, what might come in the middle and what might end the playlist. Once you have a tentative order, go through the playlist and play the last thirty seconds of each song, allowing them to transition into the first thirty second of the following tune. This will let you decide whether or not you’ll enjoy hearing these songs played back to back.
