Topic: Automatically (almost) queuing songs..

One thing I miss from iTunes is the ability to search for, and play, songs using Launchbar or Quicksilver. As a work-around, I've created the following Automator workflow, that does a surprisingly good job:

Queue

I've saved this as an application which, when clicked, looks like:

Clicked


This then searches the specified folder (in my case, "Music") for the search terms, which are then queued up in Cog. This will search artist, album and song titles – so being as specific as possible helps (e.g. "John Coltrane" will match everything by this artist; "John Coltrane Blue Train" will match just this album).

Posting here in case anyone else finds this useful! Icon taken from here.
