A variety of songs, new and old, reflecting New York's greatest borough, from Williamsburg's Manhattan Avenue and the L train, to Flatbush klezmer, to Patty Duke's Brooklyn Heights, and even a jazz tune by Mr. Manilow.
Featuring: Duke Ellington, Itzhak Perlman, Mary Ellen Bernard, Allan Sherman, Barry Manilow with Tom Scott

I'm an avid cook and when I hit the kitchen I like to listen to uplifting tunes with soul, flavor and zest - from a range of music categories. My goal is to tap into musc that'll help turn the process of chopping, peeling, boiling, broiling, deglazing, straining, roasting and toasting into a damn good gourmet time.
Featuring: Lynyrd Skynyrd, Keane, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin

Ever noticed that iTunes, etc., will count the number of times you play each song in your collection? Well I don't know about y'all, but these are the songs in my heavy rotation. Thought I had a bit more variety than this, but apparently not! Now I've shared mine, what are yours? :)
Featuring: Green Day, Interpol, Radiohead, Razorlight, Kasabian

Breaking up is a pretty long process involving anger, denial, sadness and acceptance. These songs are for sadness and acceptance part. I included the Soup Dragon's "I'm Free" because someone singing unabashedly about pure happiness and freedome always made me feel better regardless of my mood.
Featuring: Ben Folds Five, Oasis, No Doubt, Tonic, Counting Crows

Another playlist that will be making you want to dance in your car. Hip hop fans will appreciate the flow of this list and everyone can feel the energy of these songs. There are a few songs that are pretty unknown, like Star by 702 and Fire by Joe Buddens. Pure hip hop pleasure.
Featuring: Aaliyah, TI, Sean Paul, Beyonce feat Sean Paul, Gwen Stefanie feat Eve

I made this playlist for my best friend who was going through a break-up. He couldn't get over his girlfriend who didn't want to be with him anymore. Some of the songs you can cry with, some will give you hope, some will make you laugh. They all give the message that you're not the only one whose felt this way, even though it feels that way. Also with time you will recover and eventually that love will just be a fond, sometimes sad, memory.
Featuring: Coldplay, Damien Rice, Ben Harper, REM, Cake

As far as I'm concerned all Radiohead songs are awesome, but if you're just getting into them and want a place to start listening, these are my personal top choices. They are some from all of their albums, including the most recent "Hail to the Thief." My personal favorite album would be "The Bends" but "OK Computer" is a close second.

For Those of you who think Norah Jones is all "Come Away WIth Me" and "Don't Know Why" and are so tired of them, here are some other songs to listen to for a greater appreciation of this sultry singer. Right now it's snowing outside and these songs seem very fitting for the mood.
Featuring: Norah Jones

I made this mix to introduce my sister to some new bands. You will notice some artists repeat. Interesting fact: Aaron Espinoza from Earlimart was friends with Elliott Smith and their new album Treble & Tremble is an ode to him (it also sounds a lot - almost too much - like Elliott's own work)
Featuring: The Arcade Fire, The Cansecos, Nick Cave, Elliott Smith, Earlimart

Some cool electronica songs. I also put this in the "campy/humerous" category because of two songs: Frontier Psychiatrist by The Avalanches and My Name Is Tommi by Mu. In my opinion these are very funny songs, but have a good groove too.
Featuring: The Avalanches, Daft Punk, Ladytron, Air, Mu
