Is there a way, in an 80GB iPod video (I think that's what it's called) to shuffle only the songs in my playlists?

In other words, when I drop into a playlist I want the songs to be shuffled, but when I drop into an album, I want to hear it in order. Is that possible?

It seems like my only three choices for the shuffle setting are songs, albums and off. Is there some other way that I'm missing?

Shuffle is a global setting. You can't turn it on for playlists but not for albums.
