My primary iPhone playlist is a 'smart playlist' set to match all of the following:
  • Last Skipped is not in the last 2 months
  • Last Played is not in the last 2 months
  • Genre is not Unclassifiable
  • Rating is greater than 1
  • Playlist is not Podcasts (another smart list, which is also on the phone)
  • Playlist is not Car Mix (a non-smart list, also on the phone)
The list is limited to 8 hrs selected by random

I have Live updating checked, but when I'm shuffling the list on the phone, I keep getting the same songs back again. If it's really Live Updating, shouldn't a song I just played no longer be in the list because its "Last Played" date is now just a few minutes ago?

Good question. I'd like to know why "my Top 25 most played songs" include stuff I didn't even know I had, and the "Last Played" were really never played.
I made peace with that and just stick to my regular, unchanging playlists.
