I have a playlist with ~200 songs, I use this playlist during my (1-2hr) workout, it seems that when I start the playlist I hear a few songs I heard the day before. I don't want to listen again to the songs I heard yesterday...yes I could just hit >> to advance to the next song but that interrupts my workout. Is there a sort option that would play the least played song next in a playlist?

  • Is this on iPhone or on a Mac or Windows PC?

I'm not sure about being able to reverse sort by Number of Plays, but you can exclude anything played in the last x days with a Smart Playlist...

For example...

  • Reverse sort by number plays works just click on the Number of playes header.
