Any chance of keywords coming to iTunes some day?

    What do you think - will Apple add keyword support to iTunes at some point?

    I really like this in iPhoto, and I think it would be great to be able to tag the songs in iTunes just like I do with my pictures. Like, you could add whether a song is "vocal" or "instrumental" (if you just want to listen to some instrumental only tracks during work), or even add more than one genre to it without having to create 100+ different genre entries which would clutter the interface rather than being of any help.

    Using the comments field is nice and all, but results in a lot more work than a simple click on a keyword would.

    Or am I the only one asking for this feature? :eek:

    Try using the "Grouping" tag. :) That should do exactly what you want.

    [EDIT] Oh, sorry, I didn't pay attention to your third paragraph. ^_^; I guess my solution isn't much better than using "Comments," although it's designed specifically for that use. No, I don't think they'll add a clickable list of keywords, so your best bet is probably "Grouping" plus smart playlists.
