    If you have a song in a 'Best of' and the same song in its original album...do you just accept the duplicate? Unfortunately, i do.

    Has anyone come up with a better way of doing things?:apple:

    I do the same thing you do. I wish there was a way to add one single song to multiple albums for this very purpose. Oh well, who needs all that hard drive space anyway, right?

    This is one of a few minor things which really bugs me about itunes. Instead we get a helpful grid layout....:D

    I just have the song twice (or more).

    If you really don't want to do this then one way around it is to make the 'Best Of' a playlist using the relevant songs from the other albums. You won't get the correct artwork of course if that matters to you.

    Same here. :( The only thing I do about it is uncheck the duplicate for shuffle. Big whoop. :rolleyes: It would be great to find a better solution.
