[Playlists] Sort by hearts/likes

The 'Liked/Hearts' column is the only column that doesn't allow itself to be sorted. 

I added a concept (the green triangle) to show what it would look like if Spotify did allow lists to be sorted by hearts:

Why is this useful? Because it allows easier curation of the playlists that you built. You can start with a playlist where all songs are liked. As you repeatedly listen to a playlist you find out that certain songs don't fit, or aren't as repeatable as you once thought they were, or you simply have heard the song enough to be dropped from the playlist.   


On your phone you then simply uncheck the heart icon (which is the easiest gesture while on the go) and then later you return to the playlist to 'clean' the playlists from unliked/unhearted songs, either by removing them or by copy and pasting the liked songs to a new playlist.  


HOWEVER, because the playlists currently do not allow the hearts column to be sorted, the user now has to trawl through the entire playlist and remove each unhearted song by hand. This is an unnecessary tedious task that a sorting function would prevent.

Simple and Brilliant!  Can't believe such a basic, obvious and useful function doesn't exist. Come on Spotify!

I would like a sort by liked songs within playlists to play or shuffle just liked songs. I will be looking for another service. They would at least allow that this is a very simple sort and I can’t believe that is not being done.
