[Search] When Searching, Prioritize Results From Playlists As Well As Saved

I suggest to have a priority search function. Either as an integrated part of the ordinary search option (ideal case) or as a separate function.

 

What I mean is that it should highlight search results that match anything I already have in my playlists (similar to what spotify does to anything matching in "My music").


An example to illustrate what I mean. Let's say I have the song "Not Afraid" with Eminem in one of my playlists and that I want to play that song. Then I search for "afraid". It will give me tons of other suggestions first:

 

1. "Afraid" by The Neighbourhood

2. "Afraid" by Catherine Feeny

3. "Afraid of the dark" by MKTO

etc...

 

Of course, eventually I'm gonna find the song I'm looking for. BUT! It would be so convenient if it was to show search results that match anything I already have either as a separate category from "Songs", like "Songs in my playlists" or whatever. Or, show such matching search results in the top of the list, highlighted by different color or similar.

 

Several of my playlists have many songs, and finding manually is too slow.

Hi and thanks for your contribution! Can you clarify your suggestion a bit? I've been testing this, and it appears to me that songs which are saved in Your Music do automatically float to the top of the 'Songs' results, but songs which are only in playlists do not. I can edit your idea to say that this automatic prioritization should also include playlists. Is that okay?

Thank you for your sharp observation. You seem to be perfectly correct. My apologies for not testing thoroughly! Please do! So: I want Playlist songs to do the same :-)

Marked as New Idea and edited title to make it easier to find via search. This idea suggests that the automatic prioritization of search results should also include playlists, in the same way as Saved tracks.

I slightly updated the bulk text of the idea to match the new caption. That is, it's focused on getting the same funcitonality for songs matching in playlists. Thanks for you help blake!

Bumping this. If I search for a saved album, I would like it if it showed up under "Top Results"! That just makes sense that your saved stuff has priority.
