I make these lists periodically, or ask Genius to make them, to see if there's any logic behind them. They are never all the same genre. Most of them don't have beats per minute information. Often they come front the same era, like the sixties. Aside from that, some of them are quite random. I don't know how Genius works. Does anyone? Humans make better lists. Or, at least, I make better lists. Genius is faster, though.
