then you would be the perfect person to ask this
i like itunes too...but being used to winamp in the past...i keep having the urge to "enque" a track after the current one playing...obviously this cant be done on itunes....any work around for this? basically i want a particular track i found while browsing my library to play automatically right after the one thats playing...the only way i have figured to do this is by creating a playlist...was wondering if there's an easier way...

<< i can explain it to you...but i can't understand it for you... >>

Most of your issues, and many more besides can be sorted out with the scripts site Aptmunich mentions

Most of your gripes are correctible in Preferences. I have to say part of me thinks the OP is bating. iTunes is a great app, minus the DRM issues.
