    Whenever I add new songs to my library and play them a few times they never show up in the recently played playlist. Ideally I want the last song I played to be #1, second #2 etc but instead it seems to be a function of number of times played and when they were played? Anyone know the deal?

    @Led, thanks for your trust in me.

    To answer this question I have to start by explaining you that the 'recently played' playlist is a "Smart Playlist", i.e. you can edit as you like.

    I have edited it in iTunes to show the last 100 played songs in the last month.



    I then enabled 'songs' view in View > View as ~> Songs.


    And sorted by Last Played by descending date, as in last played first.


    If you follow these steps this playlist and the way it's sorted will also transfer to all you devices with Music enabled.

    Enjoy!
