Have you ever walked down the street during a thunderstorm and thought to yourself, "Gee, I really wish I had an automatically generated playlist that exactly matched the mood that this thunderstorm sets." Me neither, but in the off chance that you said yes, Songza just might be the music streaming app for you.

The company has partnered with The Weather Channel in an effort to figure out what the weather is like in your city. The app will take this information and generate a custom playlist that matches weather conditions you are experiencing. This is not the first oddball stunt that Songza has used to generate custom play list though. The app typically does this by attempting to understand your daily routine and then uses an algorithm to pick tracks that it thinks you will like.
