Q: How do I create a smart playlist that orders all songs within a genre such that the least played songs are played first?
A: This is a relatively straight-forward playlist, except there’s one twist that likely has you stuck: sorting isn’t accomplished inside a smart playlist’s logic definition, but simply in iTunes’ list view. The smart playlist you need to create only needs to single out the genre you’d like:
Then, simply sort the playlist as you’d like it to be sorted, by clicking on the appropriate column header. In this case, you’ll want to click on the “Play Count” column header until your least-played item is at the top.
