Thanks all-especially to Brian for that detailed possible solution.
I'm not at the point where I have multiple devices yet and have seen
all this happen from my IPhone, but I'll definitely have to remember
the tidbits about music match as well for when I eventually do get an
IPad to separate my work music from my personal phone.

Maybe this isn't a necessary second question to ask, but one of the
responses got me thinking about it.  I apologize if Duarte's solution
solves this too since I am just seeing this email and have not tried
his suggestions out yet, but do you always have to add songs to your
library in order to keep them in playlists?  Of course I'll try the
suggested solution and that will hopefully answer my question, but I'm
just curious as I don't necessarily want to clutter my library with
songs that I might use once or twice in a session but not want to keep
around to take up space in my library.
