Mood classification of music is an emerging domain of music information retrieval. In the approach presented here features extracted from an audio file are used in combination with the affective value of song lyrics to map a song onto a psychologically based emotion space. The motivation behind this system is the lack of intuitive and contextually aware playlist generation tools available to music listeners. The need for such tools is made obvious by the fact that digital music libraries are constantly expanding, thus making it increasingly difficult to recall a particular song in the library or to create a playlist for a specific event. By combining audio content information with context-aware data, such as song lyrics, this system allows the listener to automatically generate a playlist to suit their current activity or mood.
