like an idiot I guess, and now I need help getting the sort to work properly. Anyone know how to set iTunes by artist first name. I know how to click on it on the top, but I want the numbered artist like +44, 50 Cent, etc to appear before the A's not at the end after Z. It was like that before I upgraded, and I can't figure out how to get it back to it. Any help out there?

Sorry dude, I hate it too. Stupid Apple. (BTW, 7.4.2 came out today, lol, your behind)

edit: well you could change it the sort name under the song's options to 'aa' or something. then it would appear as what it really is but sort as 'aa', but you have to do that for each individual song.

Yea, as far as I know, you can't change the numbers back to the top.

But, if a number-first band is one of my more desired bands, I'll just make a Smart Playlist for them.

And, yea, it annoyed me at first, as well, but I got used to it. Scrolling down to the bottom isn't THAT much of an inconvenience.

It takes, what? 1.5 more seconds?

Itunes comes out with an update like every 5 minutes. Once you've updated to Itunes 7.4.1.1.1.1.1.1.1 they've come out with a 7.4.1.1.1.1.1.1.2.

I should use WMP.

EDIT: Maybe if you go into Edit Info, then Sorting Info, and change the sort artist to something like "aaaaaaa", then the next artist to "aaaaaaab"...

^Set it so it shows the browser and then you can just scroll through bands and it will only show songs from that band.

I agree, second time I've upgrade, once for videos and this time for videos for my nano and both times I was disapointed.

I know I'm anal about my music, but I want the f'ing number ones on top LOL. Dammit Apple.

does anyone else think it would be a good idea for them to make an update with a new menu under music, like this, you go to...

Music
Song
(list of letters A-Z)
and then all the songs that start with that letter

i now have to scroll thru 5000 songs to get my 311 and 3 inches of blood


good job apple


No, you scroll through bands to get to 311 and 3IoB.

And if you scroll fast, you'll get the letters to scroll in aplhabetical order, instead of going band-by-band.

It doesn't take more than 3 seconds to get from the top of my bands to the bottom.

Unless you're a REALLY slow scroller, there's no reason why it should take anymore time than any other band.

If you have the iTunes window open and active, just start typing in the name of the band (assuming you sort by artist). Type in a few letters and it will take you right to the artist.

It's not like it's THAT much of a downfall/problem.

Just a minor inconvenience until you get used to it.


It's not the end of the world, people.
