When I come back to play music after listening to a podcast or watching a movie on my iPod Classic, the first song played is always the same. And then shuffle kicks in. It there a way to "shuffle" that first song?

Workaround to this problem

Yes, I found that to be very annoying too. What I've done is to place the song "Nutopian National Anthem" at the top of my iTunes library so the shuffle always begins with this "song". The song is simply 4 seconds of silence, so starting with it is unobtrusive. It's from John Lennon's Mind Games CD.
