I would have gone with "Your mood. In stereo," but "tuning your emotions" is ok too I guess.

How are you feeling today? Are you energetic? Relaxed? Drunk? Maybe you're horny or lost in thought. Perhaps you're knitting, cooking, or doing some spring cleaning. Maybe you're simply untroubled. Whatever your mood, Stereomood will provide a soundtrack. (Warning: All links autoplay sound.)

Via the always excellent DataWhat?. Nancy Sinatra shows up a lot; don't ask me why.

The "horny" playlist is surprisingly appropriate.

They didn't have a 'trying to get up when you just want to stay in bed' one so I got dressed to 'knitting' and it was awesome. Thanks!

Wow - I just woke up, so I picked "just woke up" and got Shout Out Louds, Elvis Costello, The Strokes, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend... this might be my new favorite thing!

Good mix of old and new, established and obscure. It's nice to see faves, but where are all these obscure bands coming from?? Am I losing my coolness edge?

Anyhow, pretty good idea. Well Done.

The "Escape" category is a lousy way out.
Feel really sorry for those fuckers.

Surprised its not the absolutely massive Audiobully remix of Bang Bang rather than the original in these playlists.

okay, so this seems like a Hype Machine kind of thing where it's somehow filtering blog posts of mp3 based on tags, i think.

Thanks for posting this. A friend of mine was using it at work, but when I decided to try it, I just couldn't remember what it was called and ended up listening to kcrw online, again.

This is great. Listening to the melancholy set and loving it. Yay, Nico!

Lost in thought was good, until I got lost.

Wow, thanks. I just got the horny playlist, but I see I've got only 20 songs to get my stuff sorted. Then George Michael is gonna kick in. This is the sort of pressure that will get me into a whole new set of kinks, I guess. Thanx for expanding my horizon metafilter!

I'm really enjoying this, except... Joanna Newsom on the "sleepy" playlist?! Her voice is not what I want to hear when I'm trying to sleep (NOT JOANNA NEWSOM-IST)

Try escaping sometime.

Looks a lot like this i-phone app Moodagent. I suspect it's also based on actual ratings that people have made (the about page isn't very specific). What would be really exciting is some more automatic algorithm for deciphering emotional content of musical works. Come on boffins, get your act together!

I was in the mood to snark and this site totally let me down.

It back-fired yesterday.

Well, I'm never drunk - I just drink. But seeing the Pogues at the top of this playlist for drunks makes me want to join them.

Great stuff.

.....I completely disagree with their road trip mix.

Good lord I wouldn't recommend the "Trippy" playlist while actually tripping. Maybe that's what's wrong with the kids these days!

I usually don't like this sort of thing, but this is really good. Thanks, Captain!

The Penfield Co. is making great strides with this "mood-organ" idea, I have to say.

This thing has pretty good taste but I wish they had a "hungover" mood

Wow. Really old idea that I think no one ever thought would be executed well.

(will test it out this weekend to see, but these reports are encouraging!)

That's funny, I just had a discussion with my girlfriend this morning about what music is appropriate for waking up if you are me. "Mrs. Robinson" was playing when she turned on the radio, and that was just about perfect. Then in the shower we got Elliott Smith and Band of Horses, also optimal for when it is a weekday and I have therefore woken up homicidal. I made a remark along those lines and she was like, "Ohhh. So...no Le Tigre, then?" No. Positively NO NO NO Le Tigre before coffee. I once, regrettably, flipped out on her for turning up NPR news really loud. So this is neat, but I know to steer clear of "just woke up." Recommender technology is tough! For the record I also will not knit to CocoRosie.

I assume the tags were cribbed from allmusic.

Johnny Marr.

even the commenters agree: "this is simply one of the most epic live preformances ever"

For the last decade I've had an idea in the back of my head about some kind of automatic playlist generator based on a song's mood or feeling. This is it, and it's awesome. I hope it doesn't get taken down or crippled by lawyers.

(Random observation: Both the snuggle and lonely playlists start with the same song, which doesn't quite sit right.)

Insanely epic. That performance is just too fucking drop dead cool.

How does this site pay for bandwidth costs, and how long before it gets taken down or becomes unavailable in Canada?

I've been listening to the "chillout" playlist, and it's just about perfect in every way. I think Pandora may now have serious competition for my attention.
