thanks 90db but that looks like a program I'd have to install on a laptop. I'm looking for an ipod type player solution and so far the 'one song playlist' seems to be the only solution

I use a laptop, because I need the security of it. Also, it's good to have the lyrics at my age! grin

Hi Bob,

If you don't mind spending a few extra bucks, a CD/media player made for DJs (aka a CDJ) only plays one track at a time, and most newer models can read songs from a USB stick or SD card.

These things'll have a lot of features you don't need, but they're built like tanks and very dependable. You can usually find used ones on Craigslist or eBay for a decent price.

You could also use a DJ app on an iOS device, rather than the default music app. That'll do one song at a time as well.

Cheers
Kent

Band-in-a-Box®: Part of The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig!

Check out the latest Sweetwater article from Mitch Gallagher: "The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig" - he's included Band-in-a-Box!

"The king of backing track creation, in my opinion, is Band-in-a-Box (BIAB). It can do everything from country to jazz to metal, with a huge array of instruments and options. There is a great selection of songs and BIAB tracks available for free on the web, so you don’t even have to make your own."
