Research on playlists has focused on how usage is related to technological and music industry variables, and the demographic characteristics of users. However, it seems reasonable to suspect a psychological component to playlist usage also. The present research considered an individual’s propensity to devise and make use of playlists in terms of time perspective. Significant results indicate an emphasis on the time at hand while listening, so that playlist use has a present-orientated time perspective, rather than a future-oriented time perspective. The findings support other recent research illustrating that exercising control over everyday listening is an important aspect of musical behavior in present-day music listening.
