What’re you listening to? Post your MP3 playlists

If owning an MP3 player makes you stumble around like a zombie, bopping to the tunes in your earbuds, don’t lose hope. We can help you practice the lost art of communicating with other humans — by sharing your favorite song mixes.

Post your favorite playlists here. Then we’ll pick the best lists and save them permanently on the site, where they can be found by future generations of MP3-heads. The details:

1. Pick one of the 40 headings below. (Want to propose a new heading? Send us an email.)
2. Post a list of at least 5 songs.
3. Always include the song title and performer’s name. And if possible, add the album title in parenthesis. For example:
”Infanta,” The Decemberists (Picaresque)

Thanks — and turn down that music while you’re typing, will ya?
