Unrated Songs in iTunes

I’ve been working on rating all my digital music recently (still a long way to go). Pretty easy in iTunes:

  1. Create a live updating smart playlist that contains all your unrated songs.
  2. Rate them as you listen (even easier with global keyboard shortcuts from Synergy).

Only one problem, when you rate a song it is immediately removed from the smart playlist and the playback stops.

The solution? Set your “Unrated” playlist as the source for Party Shuffle then the songs stay in the queue and keep playing – it’s that easy (and unintuitive). Thanks to Geof for showing me this one.
