Why do some of Spotify's playlists change songs and then revert to their "default" state?

I noticed the Happy Hits! playlist keeps changing day after day. Some songs stay, some songs are removed, some songs "cycle", and some songs return after a day or two. AJR's Way Less Sad is always at the top, but sometimes it gets replaced by AUSTIN's In Betweenin' or Bastille's Thelma + Louise, and sometimes the song gets removed in the playlist entirely.

 

Yesterday the playlist had a completely different setlist save for a few recurring songs. Today the playlist is the same as when I first discovered it a few months ago.

 

Which leads me to the question: is there an algorithm that sorts the songs in the playlist? Is it based on what I'm listening to or is it an automatic process?
