The question is: When you want to only listen to the best songs, from all artists, in all genres - what's the easiest way to do it?
iTunes has Smart Playlists that can either be user defined or are automatically generated based on you. Today - we'll be using the automatically generated "My Top Rated" playlist.
What is a Smart Playlist?
Smart Playlist: A Smart Playlist is a playlist that is created by setting content criteria instead of individual content selection. iTunes includes a few Smart Playlists when you first install it, including "Top 25 Most Played" and "My Top Rated."
The Digital Life Hack:
While listening to any song, rate it 4 or 5 stars. Then, when you are in the mood to listen to only the best songs, select the My Top Rated playlist and your personal concert is created!
Tip: Make sure the playlist is not limited to 25 songs by clicking on the playlist in the left pane, then File -> Edit Smart Playlist -> Then uncheck "Limit to 25 items". Also make sure Live updating is checked.
