One of my favorite features of iTunes is Genius Shuffle. By pressing the Option key and Space Bar simultaneously, iTunes will construct a 25-track Genius-type playlist in Up Next around a “seed” track it chooses at random from your library. Typically, I’ll slap Option-Space Bar repeatedly until I get the type of songs I’m in the mood for. Sometimes though–because I have an itchy DJ finger–I’ll abandon the current set of tracks after a few songs and create a new different Genius Shuffle arrangement. But still I’d like to have been able to save the playlist I had abandoned because, at least for a while there, I really liked it. Well, you can do this with AppleScript.
I love Genius Shuffle; it’s probably my favorite iTunes feature. This is a great way to save a Genius Shuffle playlist that you really like.
