(Pocket-lint) – We love our Spotify playlists, they serve as great companions whether we’re driving, cleaning, hitting the gym or relaxing after a long day.
Sometimes, however, there is a serious speed lag andDust in the Wind doesn’t really motivate us to achieve a new personal best.
Turns out, sorting a playlist by BPM is actually quite easy – you can even filter out songs that are above or below a particular BPM. It’s a great tool at your disposal, allowing you to create the perfect mood with just a few clicks.

How to Sort a Spotify Playlist by BPM
Create a playlist
To get started, you’ll need a playlist to sort through. This can be a playlist you have already created or a brand new playlist, in either case the results will be displayed in an additional playlist at the end.
We have a huge playlist called “Good stuff I stumbled across” – and as you might guess, it serves as a bit of a dump for the songs we love, in a slew of genres, moods and speeds. It’s the perfect type of playlist to filter by BPM, allowing us to create a fast version, a slow version, or even a version that gradually changes as the playlist progresses.
In this example, we’ll create an upbeat playlist that’s great for working out. We will therefore choose songs with a frequency greater than 100 beats per minute.
Visit the Sort Your Music page
Unfortunately, this feature is not yet integrated into the Spotify app, so we have to go to an external website to sort it out. Go to the Sort Your Music website.
Next, sign in with your Spotify account by clicking the “Sign in with Spotify” button.
You should then see a list of your created and saved playlists, and you can choose which one you want to sort.
Sort your playlist
Now you should be able to see all the songs in your chosen playlist, and you have a bunch more options than usual when it comes to sorting them. These additional options include energy, which indicates how energetic a song is, danceability, and valence, which indicates how happy or sad a song is. Useful stuff!
Of course, we’re here for BPM, and conveniently we have two boxes at the top of the page that allow us to set a minimum and maximum BPM. We chose 100 as the minimum BPM and 200 as the maximum BPM, and we also unchecked the double BPM box.
We’ve also decided to order the playlist in descending order of dance ability, because regular beats should be a good workout companion, and there’s no way we’ll make it to the end of this gigantic playlist. in a single session.
Once you’re satisfied, click “Save as new playlist” in the upper right corner.
Return to Spotify
In your Spotify app, like magic, you should see your newly created playlist. It will automatically be named something like ‘X playlist sorted by X descending’ but you can rename it as you wish, as well as remove any titles you don’t want.
There you go, it might not be as simple as right-clicking on a playlist, but it’s a very handy tool and we think it’s definitely worth the effort additional.
