Make starring tracks easier

In the desktop app I find sometimes I am listening to a radio station or subscribed to a playlist and I fall in love with a song. Problem is, the only way to star a song while I am somewhere else in the app is to click on the song's cover art, then mouse over the song playing in the list to see if I have starred it yet, then click star.

 

How about just a little star next to say, the volume, or random buttons in the control bar to show if I have starred the track, and allowing me to star it right away?

 

I think someone already posted an idea for a star shortcut key. This would also be ace, being able to map it to a function key or something similar to be able star even when the app is not in the foreground would be ace. EDIT: found the idea, go give it some kudos, http://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/Add-Star-button-keyboard-short-cut/idi-p/111556
