Not focusing on all-time-bests, these are currently on my feelgood playlists in iTunes. These are single tracks, as I typically obsess with single songs rather than records. And yes, my playlists are usually this schizophrenic in genre, and I often play them alphabetically. Except that my favorite song (these days being Triptykon "Goetia") always opens all playlists, except my playlist for running, which always starts with Justice "Genesis".
