And I've just started a Prince album tracks one, but I've made it collaborative, so if anyone wants to add a load of stuff, particularly off all the more recent albums, which I don't know at all, go for it.
Prince LP Trax
I think this is what it could be really good for, collabortaive lists to accompany POX threads or whatever.
I've been re-reading Vahid's proto-kozmigroovers and Jaxon's jazz goes pop jazz goes disco threads and listening to all those records on Spotify.

Given that it was an (unwanted/un-asked-for/forced-upon-us) upgrade that fucked it in the first place, I've kind of gone off it a bit.

Thanks! I tried several of those random 'workout' playlists but none of them kept a strict 120/140 bpm tempo that I need for running so I decided to just use my ipod and skip over and over again until I bumped into songs that I could actually run to... Theres over 10,000 songs in my collection so there's hours I left out but I'll keep updating.

Also there's some less 'modern' songs which make for excellent running mates but are not available in spotify. Off the top of my head:
Neu! - Isi (140 BPM if I'm not mistaken, also Fur Immer and Hallogallo work and around the same tempo)Human League - Rock N Roll 7" version (135 bpm)

I guess I'll share them all and tell you a bit about each see if any piques your interest, including the first opening acts of each playlist so you can get a better reference of what you can expect:
Bamboojazz: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/3Qu6DZBfoTOP8AF1o4h2D3I was going for afrolatin-tinged (specially Brazilian influenced) jazz on this one. Opening artists: Yusef Lateef, Nina Simone, Kenny Burrel, Dorothy Ashby, Laurindo Almeida.
Black Devil Disco: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/1Qb69xXYizdbuCJSWTBufiModern (and not so modern) disco and house. I was initially going for a playlist filled with trendy italodisco but no more.Opening artists: Black Devil Disco, Chromatics, Newworldaquarium, Lindstrom & Prins Thomas.
Berlinette: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/3gGdcbukUvkPtkiQ1nfgLiGerman minimal. I like to listen to this one while driving.Opening artists: Christian Kleine, Zorn, Isan, Fujiya & Miyagi, Quarks.
Boombox: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/2Tn7HkvxvdIoMgSAV9YVN5Not a very creative title. I started this for a friend who wanted some breaks for her dancing practices. I mostly use it to test soundsystems.Opening artists: Ghislain Porter, Jimmy Edgar, Jamie Lidell, Junior Boys, Feadz.
Colette: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/2S4JDwyn1VVosCsFCasEYBAnother one for a friend. She has a clothing store and wanted a 'fashionista' sort of playlist. I went with a mix electro, new wave, punk-funk and postpunk.Opening artists: Nash the Slash, Tevo Howard, Taxi Girl, ESG, The Fall.
CosmoBalearis: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/6NmTWLOGFx8QDm77dztrsfThis one is a huge mix of psychedelic folk, Kosmische, Balearic and Progressive rock. Lots of obscure tracks which I was surprised to find on Spotify.Opening artists: Antenna, Barefoot Jerry, Barton Smith, Isis.
Countryfunk Swampblues: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/1A5LQOLAUa3TK6ChYLGeRwJust as the title says. The swampy, seedy type of country and blues with a dash of funk here and there. Opening artists: 7 Walkers, Al Green, Amos Milburn, Anthony Hamilton.
Favela Chic: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/4qmpSh4QgfFUnxVthPbGfUI think this is my most popular playlist? It's all over the place... I guess the concept behind it is tropical party. Cumbia, Bossa, Salsa, Samba, Chicha, Reggae, latin funk.Opening artists: Las 4 Monedas, TNT Band, Joao Donato, Ray & His Court, Los Destellos.

There's more but I had to leave! Will post them later!

Ok, here's the rest!
Living Room Raverhttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/2ihkhrShinnYh4xoJDugQDSimilar to Berlinette but more pop oriented, think Morr, Monika and those sort of music labels. I usually play this sort of music when doing house chores. Opening artists: Schlammpeitziger, Young Marble Giants, Other's People Children, Stereolab, Machine Translations.
Lunar Baedeker and Time Tableshttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/5uxIDEAndW1f3mx5OA4w6jThis one isn't as neatly organized as I want to but it still functions as a playlist. The idea is to have solo piano pieces sandwiched between classical music, but I still need to work the mood here and there. Treat this one as an early sketch.Opening artists: Aphex Twin, Radicalfashion, Glass & Uakti, Gonzales, Anouar Brahem.
Dustygrooves and Soulsideshttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/141o0XFGQFp8sUftzTss18Some of my favorite funk and soul songs. I need to update it, there's many songs I want to add but I always get lazy. Will clean and update some time in the following weeks.Opening artists: Little Ann, The Five Stairsteps, Sugar Pie de Santo, Mayer Hawthorne, Lou Bond.
Graduation Goggles (circa '98)http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/6fmrfm7pBhau6Z059QR1xnThis is a personal playlist, some of these make me feel ashamed since I like them by mere nostalgia and I can't be sincere on their quality.... this is comprised of music from mixtapes I had from 1998-2000 when I was 13-15 years old (and similar sounding music from other years that fits in here and 15 year old me would have loved).Opening artists: Modest Mouse, From Bubblegum to Sky, Guided by Voices, the Aislers Set, Sparklehorse.
In A Beautiful Place Out in the Countryhttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/7KwlC2e6gjmlZeGRGYsCciThis is for a friend who loves Boards of Canada and wanted me to pass some similar sounding artists and copycats.Opening artists: Ten and Tracer, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Rykard, Bibio, Miles Tilmann.
KodoVeranohttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/0djbUjaP9EMLypTY5WBVSBSimilar to CosmoBalearis but pop orientated. Lots of 'Balearica' and Soft Psychedelia. Personally speaking, I relate it strongly to the summer I lived in Barcelona, so again I'm not sure how well it holds without the memories attached. I think it's an awesome summer playlist but some of you might hate it.Opening artists: Tony Joe White, Air France, Honey is Cool, Mock & Toof, Fritz Kalkbrenner.
My Blood is Clean: Fuck Your Zen Gardenhttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/3eYcY3hV3uBAPO7WstyGz7Psychedelic Folk, African folk, Gamelan, Ambient, Minimalism. This is a really old playlist so I can't quite remember what was the idea behind it... it's my response to meditative and new age music, I guess. Lots of beautiful songs in here when you're in the mood. Need to update.Opening artists: Stella Chiweshe, David Darling and the Wulu Bunun, Scott Tuma, Gojogo, Arvo Part.
Premiers Symptomeshttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/25TbWdFJNXYsuXLm14MwLkI guess this is my idea of romantic music. Smokey, melancholic, the right amount of schmaltzy. Its heartbroken music half of the time so don't expect it to work for the sexy times, they might work if you're looking for a noir setting, though.Opening artists: Conjoint, Deus, Patrick Watson, Hope Sandoval, The Box Tops.

Thank you! I never get any feedback on these so if there's something you'd recommend me to add or remove in any of these I'll be happy to hear it.

I've been listening to the cosmobalearic one and loving it, bravo Moka!

A while ago, I noticed that there were no old-fashioned gospel playlists, so I made one because I love this stuff.
If you're into roots music, you'll love these albums. Very catchy, soulful stuff.
