How Do I Create a Genius Playlist?

To make a Genius playlist, select any song in your library, then click the Genius button at the bottom right of the iTunes window, or the little Genius icon in the iTunes LCD display at the top of the window. iTunes will quickly look for songs that “go together” with your selected song. The new Genius playlist will begin with the “based on” song and include 24 additional related songs (Figure 2-5).

Genius playlists give you a selection of songs that work together, more or less.

Figure 2-5. Genius playlists give you a selection of songs that work together, more or less.

You can change the Genius playlist, mostly using controls located at the top right of the list:

  • Change the length: Choose a different number of songs from the “Limit to” pop-up menu.

  • Get a new set of songs: Click the Refresh button—this rebuilds the playlist with other songs that work with the “based on” song.
