[All Platforms][Playlists] Shuffle only shuffles some songs

It's been a problem for users with large playlists for like 8 years now. Some songs are played multiple times a day, and others are never played ever.

 

Spotify says it's the algorithm and they don't intend on changing this.

 

The only solution I've found is using a third-party shuffler (SpotifyShuffle) -- but has anyone found some clever solution within Spotify itself? Is there a magic thread I've missed in the years of reading about it?
