Am I trying to do the impossible?  
Hi all,

I have a playlist I want to make that should be fairly easy, but I can't seem to get to work right.

I want a playlist that will play all of my non-classical songs at random.

Right now, my smart playlist is set as follows:

# Match all rules
# Genre is not classical
# Limit to 10000 songs selected by random

This provides the correct list of all the songs I want. Unfortunately, they are all automatically alphabetized by artist, which means my "random" playlist will start with two hours of the Beastie Boys. I want the smart playlist to play everything from random.

One option is to limit the number of songs to just one or two, but I don't want to have to restart the playlist every five minutes.

Is there a way to randomize the songs within a playlist?

all you have to do is change the way its listed in itunes and your ipod will follow suit. There is no way to get a real random order but if you change it to pick songs by most played or track number that will jumble them up. Also Genre & Time are good ways.

Or you could change your settings on your ipod to shuffle playlists. I don't know too much about this option as I've never done it.
