Becoming a Musical Genius with Smart Playlists

The basic purpose of a smart playlist is the same as a standard playlist—that is, to contain a collection of songs to which you can listen, put on a CD, and so on. However, the path that smart playlists take to this end is different from standard playlists. Rather than choosing specific songs as you do in a standard playlist, you tell iTunes the kind of songs you want in your smart playlist, and it picks out the songs for you and places them in the playlist. For example, suppose you want to create a playlist that contains all of your Classical music. Rather than picking out all the songs in your Library that have the Classical genre (as you would do to create a standard playlist), you can use a smart playlist to tell iTunes to choose all the Classical music for you. The application then gathers all the music with the genre Classical and places that music in a smart playlist.

Note

When you delete a song from a playlist, it isn’t deleted from the Library. It remains there so you can add it to a different playlist or listen to it from the Library.
