Some iTunes Playlists and the death of Musicmobs

Since the demise of Musicmobs, I’m kinda missing
sharing my iTunes playlists with my fellow listeners…..not sure why
really, as it seems like a fairly futile activity. However, by grouping
tracks by a theme/title/ or whatever, we might discover some new music
perhaps.

Anyway, Musicmobs was great….and since its creator, Toby Padilla,
has now joined Last.fm’s staff, I was kinda hoping that Last.fm would
include a similar function. Maybe it has, but I can’t find it…..

Anyway, here are some playlists I knocked together over the past months.
(Please note that the app I’m using to convert xml to txt changes “artist” to “Sung by”; though they’re not all songs) –
