    Hi all,

    Here is what I want to do in iTunes. Usually, either with all my music or within a particular playlist, I like to play songs in a random order (using the Shuffle option).

    Now, suppose I notice another song that I haven't listened to in a while or for whatever reason, I want to have the option of play that song either
    (1) after the current song has finished playing, or
    (2) immediately.

    Option (2) is straightforward. I just double click a song and it plays.
    For option (1), I know I can use the Party shuffle feature but if I do use that I know I can't do option (2) anymore. Because, to browse an entire playlist or music collection I have to step out of Party Shuffle. And once I find a song, if I double click on it to play it immediately, I am out of party shuffle and into the particular playlist or the Music folder. So, I can no longer do option (1).

    So basically, iTunes enables me to do either option (1) or (2) but not both.

    Is there anyway to do both? Is there a hack or a script that enables queuing similar to Winamp?

    I have noticed this question asked before but no one appears to have given a concrete answer other than say "use party shuffle".

    Sorry for the longish post but this has been bugging me for quite sometime!

    A slight alternative, is click the song, and then click Genius. Create a new playlist with that song. Not a perfect answer, but an alternative.
