Creating Playlists

The iTunes application lets you add songs from several different sources. For example, you might have some MP3 songs on your hard drive, and you want them stored within the iTunes application, or you have a music CD that you want converted into MP3 format. Importing songs can be accomplished through the iTunes menu system, or it can be as simple as a drag and drop. Whatever method you select, you'll first want to set up a Playlist to hold and organize your songs. A Playlist is a folder that holds songs. For example, you could have a Playlist for all your Country & Western songs, one for your Rock & Roll; even one for audio books. When you open iTunes, you first select the Playlist you want to listen to, and then either double-click on the first song in the list, or click the Play button; iTunes then plays all the songs in that list. Playlists come in two flavors—Playlists and Smart Playlists. Playlists let you play the songs in the list again, play the songs in random order, or stop when the last song plays. Smart Playlists rebuild themselves according to the criteria you setup. For example, you might create a Smart Playlist that only plays the songs in the library you rate a 4-star or only Christmas songs.
