Theme Playlists

Theme playlists are how Dr. Reptile thinks of songs and puts music together — in themes rather than by genre, era, or some other reason to make a playlist. Generally the theme is in the title of the song but occasionally it’s prominent in the lyrics. It also has to be sequenced with other songs in the theme and usually fit on one CD (80 minutes) but sometimes has to extend to Vol. 2 or be left as a playlist alone.

The fun is in thinking of them, producing them, making a CD cover for them, giving them away — and then revising them as new or better songs come up. Suggestions are always welcome but Dr. Reptile ultimately has to decide which songs fit and belong on the theme playlist. Here’s an old one.screenshot_01.jpg
