How to creates a "fixed" random playlist?

by Veltor / May 17, 2013 11:57 AM PDT

I want to create playlists with songs in a random order. I want to listen to all the songs in that order before listening them again.

If I use the "Randomize" feature, the list will always reset and start anew in a new order when I listen to something else and get back to the playlist. I dont want to re-listen the same songs, I want to continue where I left.

If I use the "Randomize" feature, when I switch from my iPhone to my work's computer, from my work's computer to my home computer, and back to my iPhone, it will always reset the list and start anew. I dont want to re-listen the same songs, I want to continue where I left.

It was so easy to do before iTunes 11, but now that the songs remains in their initial order in the list when using "Random", im at a lost. How can I do that?
