Query audio tracks with something similar to SQL

It would be nice to have the possibility to make SQL like queries on the whole Spotify library. Something like:

 

SELECT TOP 50 tracks

FROM Playlist1

WHERE ReleaseDate BETWEEN 2004 AND 2010

ORDER BY ReleaseDate DESC

 

SELECT TOP 10 tracks

FROM Artist1

WHERE BeatsPerMinute > 120

AND ReleaseDate > 2000

ORDER BY Popularity

 

And to save those queries as a playlist or something similar. So one could create dynamic playlists based on meta data.

 

You really should provide a Spotify Library Query Language SLQL. Where others ca build services depending on your solution.
