Creating a sorted iPod playlist?

basically i want one large playlist of all my songs in alphabetical order (artist-track). I tried making a playlist and sorting by artist, does sort by artist but puts the order of the songs by their corresponding album. If i click "Song Name" it will sort all of the songs alphabetically, but will mixup the "Artist" column. I can accomplish what i need in winamp by doing a "sort list by title," but not itunes.

here's a sample of what i'm trying to do:

1. 12 Stones - Far Away (3:21)
2. 12 Stones - Let Go (4:29)
3. 3 Colours Red - Age Of Madness (2:21)
4. 3 Colours Red - Back To The City (4:01)
5. 3 Colours Red - Be Myself (2:50)
6. 3 Colours Red - Beautiful Day (4:18)
7. 3 Colours Red - Calling to the Outside (4:27)
8. 3 Colours Red - Cancel The Exhibition (3:43)
9. 3 Colours Red - Intermission (4:25)
10. 3 Colours Red - Paralyse (3:19)
11. 3 Colours Red - Paranoid People (3:09)
12. 3 Colours Red - Pirouette (4:13)
13. 3 Colours Red - Song On The Radio (4:07)
14. 3 Colours Red - This Is My Time (3:45)

So you want the primary sort key to be the artist column, and the secondary key to be the song name column.

Short version: iTunes has no way to do that.

Long version: iTunes has no easy way to do that. You could sort by artist, copy the sorted list to the play order, then sort by play order and manually rearrange the tracks for each artist into alphabetical. But iTunes does not have any support for a secondary sort key.
