So a couple of friends share a laptop with a ton of songs. We're having a party on Friday and we're gonna have it out so guests can request songs. But of course, there's a couple complications:

How do we keep guests from screwing with other files on the laptop? (Yes, we know all about Party Mode in Microsoft Plus!, but, we don't have it. We're not gonna pay for it or illegally download it either.)

What if somebody requests a song and ten seconds later somebody comes and starts playing another one in the middle of it? This would go on and on and on and a song would never be completed. Is there a way to put requested songs into a que of some sort and play in chronilogical order of request, allowing each song to finish before the next one is started?

We're using WMA 11 and we like it better than Itunes or anything else, but if it's necessary we'll get something else.

Thanks in advance.

put it on shuffle, then hide it inside a hollow wall.

Make a CD with all the tracks you like on, and then put that in a CD player on shuffle and put your laptop well away from prying hands / eyes. Alternatively use an mp3 player

I don't know about WMA 11... but with Winamp you can set a tracklist of songs in a certain order... and then if necessary you can swap a few around even while another song is playing without disrupting anything.

As far as people screwing with other files... set up a screensaver to run the whole time that requires a password to remove... and only have a couple of people that know the password. You shouldn't have a problem then.

No no no you guys don't understand.

I have a TON of songs, enough that anybody could request their 5 favorite songs and I would have them all on my laptop.

It's not crazy wild party. There will be NO BEER or anything else of that nature , Virgil_Hart.

It isn't just a playlist of songs, it's a Jukebox.

Just lock the computer with a password and unlock when the song is done

Recommending some techno maybe some infected mushroom

print out a list of songs and post it somewhere and they can request it that way and then have somebody at the computer at all times or something to that nature.

Ok, put a peice of paper and pen out.
Have people write their requests.
Go and add them to a playlist, 10 at a time or something.
Don't let people touch the laptop.
Have them write it on paper.
and you and friends (whom you trust) put them in the toppy.

Big deal, people may change the tracks...You'll be too wasted to care, anyway.

I remember one party where I must've put Summer Song on at least 15 times.
