I think of playlists like a story of sounds. The first track usually represents the initial energy of the playlist. Then as I piece together the rest of the playlist I find songs that blend well sonically or lyrically as if they were meant to naturally be placed together.
By the time the listener gets to the middle I always like to switch the pace or the sound almost as if the story is taking a new turn, suprising the listener with something they might not have been expecting.
Now just as the begining of a playlist is important I keep in mind that as the playlist comes to an end there is a statement to be made, something special that makes you want the listener to take away with them once it all comes to an end.
I love making playlists because you get to create a piece of you with music.
