I've been wishing for this as well, but able to do it from the remote
control. There's lots of times when I want to play an additional song
straight away without losing the current playlist, and without a
hundred button presses, all from the luxury of my sofa!

press and hold ADD. This puts the selected item into the playlist right after
the current song.

ignore this post if you really just need to vent for venting sake.
