To Be Deleted

Smart Playlists
I have a number of compilation CDs which contain songs I know I don't like. As there are so many CDs, I didn't want to selectively import songs, so I just imported them all. When I come across a disliked song while listening to a CD, I rate it as one star. On synchronising with iTunes, these show up in my Smart Playlist:

My Rating is 1

I then look at the playlist and it tells me what songs to delete. Unfortunately, you can't delete them directly in the playlist, so you have to note the song name, then search for it in the library and delete it from there.

Dave adds: If you hold down option and press delete you can delete the file from all playlists and remove from your hard drive.

That's why I'm hoping that they'll add a "-1" rating...

Does this work with [ctrl] on PC's?

On a PC hold shift and delete.

This is exactly what I do! I knew that none of my music would have a rating and that there would probably be music I don't care to listen to, so I figured I'd just give them a 1 star rating. My SPL just looks for that rating. Then I delete all those songs using SHIFT-DEL.
