My Question or Issue

Why the songs are not always added to the top of the list? It used to work that way, not it does not. It seems you have changed how "recently added" works. I've created a new playlist, added all songs from my previous playlist, but insted adding them in order they were in the old list, they are now reordered by artist name!!! Now when I choose "sort by date" it just sorts by artist name. Why is that?
