Mix tapes are in art. As we have become so technologically advanced the drive to sit down in front of a tape player and constantly hit play stop play.... has become very unnecessary. Of course, the old school hip hoppers, scenesters and the pretentious head bangers will disagree, I have to say that ipod playlists or mix cds (made on itunes) are just as fun.
People take all kinds of approaches to making a perfect playlist. Some stick to a specific genera, you could have a mix cd with only hip hop or you could have mixed genera playlist. While others will go from a mellow song and build up to a climax and then back down again. The possibilities are endless.
The good people at Tiny Mix Tapes have created an Automatic Mix Tape Generator .
    Here's the deal: You send us a style, genre, word, phrase, emotion, or whatever else, and if one of our mix tape robots fancies your suggestion, that crazy set of circuits might just make a mix tape out of it -- well, at least a tracklisting for a mix tape out of it.

The following are a few of my favorite "mix tapes" they have made:
