Simple Transitions

genre transitions can suck

My iPod has about 3,000 songs of varying genres. I don't know about you, but I hate it when I go from classical, to punk, to jazz, to rock, to country, back to jazz, to dance, to blues, to techno, etc. I was thinking that there should be a feature that allows certain genre transitions, specified by you. For example, you could input in:

Transition 1: Rock - Punk

Transition 2: Classical OR Jazz OR Blues

Transition 3: Techno - Dance OR Punk

       When in doubt, play a sound clip of John Cleese saying "And now for something completely different" between the songs.   

       Wouldn't this tend to get you "stuck" in a certain genres or sets of genres, if there were no transition defined to get out to the rest of your collection?

       No. After the transition is finished, it moves to a transition with the closest genre (judged by other transitions).   

       That didn't make any sense, did it? ;-)

       I usually just make a playlist designed like that. If I want to listen to rock punk type music, it's all in the same playlist. Etc. But that would work too.
