Missing Memes

Okay... I don't get this one. What's up with this MP3

Okay... I don't get this one. What's up with <A HREF="http://www.livejournal.com/users/wanbuliao/159107.html?style=mine">this</A> <A HREF="http://www.livejournal.com/users/brigus/158248.html?style=mine">MP3</A> <A HREF="http://www.livejournal.com/users/coongt/22416.html?style=mine#cutid1"</A>playlist</A> <A HREF="http://www.livejournal.com/users/siegferret/50895.html?style=mine#cutid1">meme</A>?

I need instructions, apparently. It seems to be people copying 10-30 songs from WinAmp. (<I>By hand</i>? Or can you somehow cut/paste this?) People also mention randomizing their playlist.

Okay, here's where I get more confused: which playlist? I have about 30 WinAmp playlists in addition to playlists for favorite artists and albums. Each playlist has 5-20 songs, typically. When I open WinAmp, I pick a playlist based on either my mood or the song stuck in my head at the moment. I then sometimes <I>add</I> two or three more playlists to create that day's combo.

So... Which playlist should I select songs from? I mean, heck, I'd love to be a lemming for another meme if I could just figure it out!
