How-To: Make a Last-Minute Dinner Party Playlist

OK, you've got an hour to get the turkey out of the oven, mash the potatoes, prep the stuffing, not to mention setting the table for the people who are coming over for dinner. OMG the people! You need a party playlist asap!

When you're making a big important meal, the last thing you want to stress over is the dinner music. So you put off making the perfect playlist until now. Big deal — as long as you know some great last-minute ways to do it for you!

My current favorite music generator is iTunes Genius. Far better than iTunes's Party Shuffle, all you have to do is select one song whose tone you want for the party, and voila, 20 songs whose tone fits the party.

Not into iTunes? Plug in your laptop speakers and head over to Pandora or Last FM, both of which will provide you with "stations" that are exactly what you're looking for. Focus on that juicy turkey instead, and people will coo over that and your impeccable taste in music.

I love Genius also! I've learned a lot of great songs / bands from that feature :)

I love the Genius feature! I get pretty upset when the song I want doesn't have any recommendations, but I figure a way around it.

Nice, I'll have to try this out. I've used Genius a few times with mixed results. My taste is REALLY eclectic, so when it recommends based on a single song that's playing it's usually far off. I'll have to turn it back on and play with the playlist feature!
