View Full Version : iTunes smart playlist help

11-20-10, 12:39 AM
OK, this goes back to my inability to do any kind of programming.

I would like to make a smart playlist that includes every song from artists that appear on a certain album. For example, I would put Abbey Road into the playlist and it would populate with every Beatles song in my library.

Is this possible? Any and all ideas are appreciated! Thank :)

I don't understand.

If, for example, you want to put Abbey Road into a Smart Playlist and then have it populate with every Beatles song in the library, why not just create a Smart Playlist for The Beatles?

Or, are you talking more along the lines of...

Create a Smart Playlist for the Matrix Soundtrack, and you want the Smart Playlist to populate with the artists that are on the album (so the playlist will include every song by Rob Zombie that's in your library, and every song by Deftones, etc)

Well that's a bit more interesting. I'm sure it can be done though. I'll experiment.

The latter. :)

Probably have to add all the artists in manually

Bummer. Seems like it should be so easy... :-\
