I'm a lazy guy. Never got into playlists, even in the days of 8-track. The selections are already "shuffled" - fast, slow, opera, orchestral, concertos, etc. There are movements from symphonies as compared to the whole symphony. Or arias as compared to .... So I get an easy-going variety of quality sound and artistry.
