As you start to amass lots of songs in playlist it starts to be not enough to reorder the tracks by just title, artist, album or date added.
Spotify lacks a new column in which the user can assign a custom track number to songs in any playlist and sort it by track number.
Idea for a new layout with the track number row
I believe I am not the only audiophile out there that loves to create a custom playlist's songs order for a party or just for personal fun. Just imagine how many hours someone can spent collecting lots of songs, drag and drop all of them in a particular order just to mistakenly click in the album row title and lost all that drag and drop effort to create a perfect playlist?Imagine listening to a movie soundtrack, or a videogame soundtrack, and then losing the original songs order?
I know that if you click 3 time in a row title the playlist will return to the "original order", it means somehow spotify already has this track order data saved in its servers and all we neeed is to "see this data" and be able to change it manually by typing the track order number.
Look at it as an opportunity to give all spotify customers a very simple but powerful capability of all the classic mp3 players like Winamp! Create a custom playlist order, save it, and see the user created track order numbers in its own column.
Lots of young people that listen to music today in spotify don't care about that feature, but I bet there is a lot of veterans out there like me that used to create huge playlist track orders in Winamp, Foobar2000, SongBird, etc.
