When they brought out the shuffle song preferences to allow you go make things less random in iTunes 5, it seemed to work pretty well. I'm beginning to wonder though if the slider is the wrong way round in iTunes 6. I've listened to 50 songs today out of a playlist of 1500 with the slider set to 'Less Likely' and I've still heard 6 Elliott Smith, 5 Jack Johnson and 4 Sheryl Crow ones. There have also been two or three from two albums. I do realise that the definition of random is that it could throw up the same song/artist/album but I'm curious if anyone else is finding the 'Shuffle' preference set on 'less likely' to make it more likely you hear the same things!
