I really don't get the new search feature in iTunes 11. How can I for instance search for all the songs with a name containing "strauss" and listen to them?
In the search box, write your search term, "strauss". Then use the dropdown menu to the left in the search field (the magnifying glass) to select Filter by: Song to only get matches on song name.
Make sure you have Songs selected in the main toolbar as well to get the songs in a plain list.
