    Hey all, I want to create a smart playlist that adds songs by artists that have only ONE song in my iTunes library. Can this be done? Thanks.

    Whilst I'm no expert on these things...

    You could manually add a 'comment' to the tracks and then create a Smart Playlist that contains only that 'comment'.

    I don't think there is any way to do it...

    It's not quite the same thing, but anyone that I only have a song or two by is usually someone I wouldn't ever have the whole album of, so instead of having the relevant album in the comments (which means little when it's a random song) I put "Non Album" as the album name (although this could be "*" or "_" or similar), and have a smart playlist for "Non Album" so it automatically adds them.

    Not as easy as it auto sensing who has one song and doing it for you, but once you've done them it works well.

    Edit: Or what BoyBach said, basically. :p

    Well, hopefully we will see a new iTunes next wednesday with more options for smartER playlists. I have a couple in mind that just can't work with the current options.
