My Question or Issue

So after being sick of only hearing the same 100 songs on my playlist if I used shuffle play, I decided to try what I thought was a fool-proof method of getting around this limitation: I sorted my playlist by song length and turned off shuffle. Should be good, right?

 

Well, it did well for a while, but today, it decided that it was going to change the queue on me and it started grouping artists together if the song length was the same amount, even if the playlist had them in a different order. Also, the length of time didn't seem to matter, even though that's what I was sorting on.

 

So the playlist shows something like:

Artist A - song 1

Artist B - song 1

Artist C - song 1

Artist A - song 2

Artist B - song 2

Artist C - song 2

Artist A - song 3

Artist B - song 3

Artist C - song 3

 

But the Queue shows something like:

Artist A - song 1

Artist A - song 2

Artist A - song 3

Artist B - song 1

Artist B - song 2

Artist B - song 3

Artist C - song 1

Artist C - song 2

Artist C - song 3

 

I noticed this topic has come up before, and the suggestions were to clear out the cache and uninstall / reinstall the app. I followed those instructions, and the issue persisted.

 

I discovered that if I changed the sort type and played a song, the queue would reset to playlist order for a song, but after that song, it reverted back into the "sort by artist in the queue". It did this for every sort type I tried.

 

In an ideal world, I would prefer a shuffle feature like Windows Media Player used to have where it would remove the song from the list once it was played so that the you would only hear each song once unless you started it over again, but I know that Spotify doesn't seem to agree with me or the numerous other people who want this feature.

 

In its stead, can you please help with fixing this problem?

I appreciate it!
