Dear Richard, Thank you very much for your answer. With playlistify it was possible to import my playlist with loved songs – almost 85 % of the songs. But how can I import or convert a single list with tagged songs? Or how can I import a xspf-file (exported data file from last.fm)? Can you help?

I have tried everything... ~:-( Finally I solved the problem by myself. :) If anyone needs help:
It is very very easy:
1. Export your individual play list or tag list from last.fm >> Download as xspf data file.
2. Open with Excel. You only need two columns: One for artists, the other for track titles. You can delete the rest.
3. Save your list as csv data file.
4. Upload your csv data file with http://www.ivyishere.org/ (Watch the helpful video!)
5. Then copy & paste into any Spotify playlist.
I wish, I would have known before…
Thanks a lot to Ivy!!!

Why not export the Last.fm playlists or tag lists directly to TSV format (there is a dropdown option for that)? Or did you try that, and it did not work?
I tried it with an exported playlist in TSV format, uploaded it to http://www.ivyishere.org and chose to disregard the third column with the Last.fm online URLs there. That seems to have processed fine so far, as I can copy & paste the generated Spotify playlist from the browser clipboard to Notepad and have a look at it and/or save it to a file. Unfortunately there is no option to paste it to the beta Spotify web player which I'm using at the moment.

Did you check the exported TSV file in a spreadsheet application first before saving as CSV and uploading it? Sometimes the three columns track, artist and URL get mixed up in the first column, so you have to correct that error first.
In the meantime I wrote a summary in my Last.fm Conductor group with more details, e.g. that it is necessary to convert the exported TSV file to CSV format now, as Ivyishere has changed that recently. Another reason why you have too few tracks in your Spotify list might be that they simply are not available here. And of course all exported Last.fm lists are only based on single tracks, so e.g. if you tagged a lot of albums on Last.fm like me, they will not appear in the exported tag radio list, only the tagged tracks.
By the way, the official Last.fm support group for their Spotify app has been updated, too. See the group front page for a list of available features, countries etc.

I've tried just pasting any random songs in there, and it finds none of them, even though they are in Spotify.
I get the same crappy result with both uploading methods.
I searched on Spotify, and found 15 tracks out of 1001
Only thing I can think of is that the CSV file maybe needs to have some very specific settings when saving it? I'm using OpenOffice.
But that still doesn't explain why good old copy & paste won't work.

OK, so at least your exported Last.fm TSV list has 1,001 tracks in it, that's good. Maybe you need to change the import options in the OpenOffice spreadsheet application, I'm using LibreOffice and had to disable some options there as well to get the best results, e.g. I chose "Tabulator" as the only valid separator in the spreadsheet list, not "Comma" or anything else. There is a preview in the import window, too, where you can check if the result will be OK.
What's your username on Last.fm, I can check the exported list for you, if you want?
