In May, Spotify reached a milestone: 10 million paid subscribers, totaling in 40 million users worldwide. Ubiquitous as the streaming service has become, there may be an area of Spotify you've yet to fully appreciate: Tucked away in the Browse section lives the "Genres & Moods" playlists.

These aren't your normal "Today's Top Hits" playlists. These are for situations that call for a more curated selection of tunes.

Spotify has a playlist if you, say, missed your train and are forced to sleep in the station overnight. Or to occupy on a long, boring car trip. Or to accompany a mac n' cheese dinner. And more. So, so much more. The breadth of mood-oriented lists is bananas, but it's the ludicrous specificity of these playlists that's the real LOL.

Take a look at smattering of some the most ridiculous playlists Spotify has to offer:
