How do you 'Group' songs in Itunes....

by sox73b3 / June 22, 2009 12:59 AM PDT

Is there a way to always have 2 songs play together when shuffling?

Example;

I would like We Will Rock You and We Are the Champions from Queen to always play one after the other.

Is this possible?

Thanks

Yes, you can create your own song order
by Dan Filice / June 22, 2009 3:52 AM PDT

You may have already done this, but if you create a new Playlist (click on the + sign at the bottom left and name it), you can drag songs into that playlist from your main Music folder, and once inside this playlist you can put them in any order, and that order will stay that way until you drag the song to a different play order. When inside your playlist, you will notice that at the top of the box containing your songs, you have a choice to click on "Name", "Artist", "Title", etc. On the far left, click on the little empty box (just to the left of the "Name" box), and then you can drag your songs and create the order you want them to play. You can do this when in any playlist of even the main Music folder, but by creating your own playlist, you can add only the songs you want without dealing with other songs.

Thanks, but...

Thanks for the reply.

That sounds like a good solution.

What I normally do is create a playlist without a preset order and listen to it with shuffle on so it plays a different order everytime, but there are usually songs that I would like to group together even with shuffle activated.

It sounds like your method is the best and only way to get what I want.

Thanks Again

a roundabout way to do this

If you have the songs on cd, you could rerip them and join the tracks as one song. That way, they will always play together. In iTunes, after you put the cd in, uncheck all of the songs except the two you want. If I'm not mistaken, the two songs should already be in the order you want. Then go to the advanced menu and select "join cd tracks." Then click on "import cd" that should be on the lower right of iTunes. Afterwards, you can rename the song to reflect whatever name you want.

Excellent! I totally forgot about the method you suggested, and it works.
