Derrick Story has written a tip on how to create a smart playlist for those songs that don’t get played often on i iTunes/iPod.

“So I created a new smart playlist titled “Unsung Heros.” In the parameters for the list I set Last Played -> is not in the last -> 30 days, and then I set up a couple more limiters such as Album -> does not contain -> Christmas so Bing Crosby doesn’t constantly appear at the top of my list. One other parameter I set is Limit to 50 songs -> selected by song name.”

Another good thing parameter to add is “Time -> is greater than -> 0:30” so you don’t get all those little cd-intro not-really-songs
