sfyetter, this is fantastic!!!

It's just that there's a site update coming soon, with a new ranking and almost 7,000 new songs on the site. Nevertheless it would be great to have both Spotify lists and Apple Music lists on the site in the future. I will definitely look into that sooner or later.

Awesome! I use Apple Music instead of Spotify so it would be great to have Apple Music playlists.

Thanks Henrik!

Regarding creating Apple Music playlists, I am experimenting using an app called "STAMP" from https://freeyourmusic.com/ . Are you familiar with it? It allows for the creation of playlists from .csv files. The app parses the .csv line by line and feeds it to an iTunes interface seeking matches. If it gets a match, it adds it to the playlist. One oddity is that due to parallel processing, the order is not preserved 100%, but it is close. There are other oddities not worth getting into here. It does however provide a limited opportunity for auto-creation of Apple Music lists. Do you know of better approaches?

One challenge of the STAMP approach is that you need to specify both the song and the album containing the song in the .csv to get a good match. I'd like to do some more experimentation with this. Is it possible for you to generate a spreadsheet from your database containing a cross reference of top songs to the top album that they appear on (when they do appear on a top album)? I think it would be appropriate to use Top Albums for Top Song AM playlists where possible.

sfyetter, it would be awesome if you (or someone else) could convert the Spotify playlists to Apple Music playlists!

Here is a spreadsheet of all my track links. Ideally for me, Apple Music links would be added to this spreadsheet. The key information would be the new links and the ID column.

Henrik,

Apple's model is different from Spotify's. I don't think your plan of just adding "Apple Music links" to the spreadsheet will work. I don't know of any way to generate Apple Music playlists from such a list.

For example, here is the Apple Music link to "Like A Rolling Stone": https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/like- ... =201281527 . Because there is no web version of Apple Music (and there won't be), the link just sends you to the iTunes version of the album that the song is on, but it will not play. You need to go the next step and open the album in iTunes to get it to play.

So I plan to work on updating the above Apple Music playlists by year, and will create a 10,000 song playlist that is shareable, but I don't know of any way to fill out your spreadsheet with Apple Music URIs.

Steve

Hey sfyetter, do you know how import those Apple links into playlists in iTunes? Like if I wanted to create playlist from each of those links into my iTunes how would I do that if that is possible?

If you add one of the above playlists to your library in Apple Music, it will show up in iTunes under your "Apple Music Playlists" in the left navigation. From there you can right-click on the playlist and select "Duplicate" to make a copy of the playlist for yourself that you can modify.

I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. I can't seem to even get the playlists into my library. When I open the link I choose 'Listen on Apple Music' button and when I open it in Itunes it has options to Share, Copy, etc and then when I right click to Add to Playlist it asks to Merge to Library and then I get 'Genius results can't be updated right now . An Unknown error occurred'.

To duplicate a playlist, you need to be in the "Library" tab of iTunes. You should see an "Apple Music Playlists" section showing up in the left hand navigation bar. There you can select playlists that you have added. If you right-click on an Apple Music Playlist in this navigation view, you will see the option to "Duplicate" it.

I'm not sure if you are getting what the problem is. I can't even get these links you provided into my library. I also don't see anything that says 'Apple Music Playlists' section in my iTunes on the left hand nav bar. I've never seen that in my iTunes. I can open your playlists in the 'Browse' section and that's really all I can do. From there I right click on the playlist to 'Add to Playlist' which are all the playlists I have in my library and then I get that error that I told you about.

I figured it out by calling an Apple rep. I guess I need to subscribe to Apple Music to see the 'Apple Music Playlists' you are talking about.

Thanks to bootsy for pointing out the 1976 link above is wrong, here is the corrected URL:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/playlist/1976-acclaimed-songs/pl.u-JN4GtEGX2DW

I'm currently working to get the above playlists in sync with the recent AM revisions starting with 2010s and working back in time.
