When iTunes is playing songs from a Playlist, sometimes I just want to play a song from later in the playlist. Is there a way to load songs into a queue, or to tell iTunes to play another song next?

I'm using iTunes on Windows 7.

You could use iTunes DJ. Select the playlist that you want from the list in the left-hand corner.

Then, you can right click on a song, and select "Play next in iTunes DJ"
Play next in iTunes DJ

I believe you need to use the iTunes DJ playlist feature to do something like this. It's located on the top of the Playlists list.

This let's you:

Change the list of upcoming songs at any time by adding, removing, or reordering them.

Once you have it enabled, you can right-click a song and choose Play Next in iTunes DJ.
