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
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.
