Top top?

I have a "Top 3" smart playlist that has the 3 most played songs in my ipod. I was wondering how to create another smart playlist that storages everything that has been on the "Top 3" playlist.

I really don't think this can be done (not using iTunes itself anyway).

The playlists are live updating, so once a song drops off your main Top 3 list there is no automatically way to include it elsewhere. I think this has to be manual, or using some vbscript or java to link into the iTunes API and build a new playlist for you.

Do you know any website that teaches how to build boosted playlists like these?

Thanks anyway,

I don't know of an itunes playlist tutorial. This site here is one of the best resources I've seen. Another good one is: http://forums.ilounge.com/forumdisplay.php?f=97

Oh, and to the OP:

Normally that'd be impossible, however your criteria of "most played" makes it possible. (it wouldn't work for most other criteria)

Make two playlists.

1. Playlist "Top 3" limited to 3 songs by most played.

2. Playlist "Below top 3" limited to XX songs by most played. Rule: playlist is not "Top 3"

Granted, it's not *exactly* what you're looking for, but basically, any song on the top 3 that gets bumped, will be in the top 10, so just make another playlist that shows the top 10 (or more) minus the top 3.
