    When playing music, and usually when I'm not picking each individual song (though not always), iTunes well randomly freeze, sometimes on the first song i play, sometimes not until an hour later:

    -Song will stop playing - no sound, time does not continue to count
    -Play is still activated, it doesn't say that it has paused, though it has
    -Overall performance of iTunes decreases dramatically, and oftentimes I will get the beachball of death when trying to do anything in iTunes
    -after a varying amount of time, the song will continue to play, as if nothing happened
    -once this happens once, it is bound to happen again multiple times in the same listening session
    -Restarting iTunes does not really help
    -i have tried reinstalling itunes, with no help
    -i am using iTunes 10.5.3, but the problem has been going on for the better part of a year
    -i have a macbook pro, 15 inch, with Lion (but the problem was happening on snow leopard, as well), version 10.7.3, 2.53 GHz intel core i5 processor, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

    obviously this is a huge problem, and really annoying, especially since I use my computer for party playlists and like to leave it alone with a playlist for a couple hours.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have not...

    no. It does it a little less, but still does and it is annoying as ever. I've been trying to get a snapshot of the activity monitor whenever it happens, but of course whenever I have it open and am playing music it doesn't freeze... typical.
