Earlier this week, we asked you what your favorite music apps are. There were a lot of great options for anyone looking to discover new music or have access to their favorites. What most of these apps lack, however, is the very thing that makes Spotify so appealing: playlists. These playlists are, basically, mixtapes for friends or built around a certain theme – like this one, featuring songs about books or authors (Iron Maiden's "Brave New World" sticks out). They're a great way to expose yourself to music you've never heard or, maybe, just to have a laugh.
Here's a sampling of the wide range of playlists that #RSFans have created or shared (note: you'll need Spotify to listen):
