[Feature Request] Random order (not shuffle)

Please allow true random order playback (so that it is possible for the same song to repeat before the whole playlist has played).
Please.

Funny how this is such a polarized topic. I would much rather have my random mode NOT repeat a song until all in the current list have played through. Perhaps either a setting option to choose which is preferred, or at least have the shuffle button toggle through off/shuffle/random modes?

the real appeal beyond just that is the  simple fact that the current "shuffle" is really just alternate order, as it doesn't costantly randomize.

like, if i play one of my play lists, it will play each song in the SAME exact order as it did when i made the play list 2 years ago. (and it doesn't matter which song i start with, there just is a shuffled order that never changes no matter where you jump in).

lots of people are going to want random to actually be random. this is one of those things that should have been a day one feature.

I don’t get a “repeated” shuffle order. It always seems to be a different arrangement whenever I restart from shuffle off to shuffle on. But I do find it more frustrating to do something as simple as selecting a genre to start playback in shuffle mode. This to me is a standard should-always-have-it feature for any player. Yet it is not there today.

Maybe not exactly what you're looking for, but If you turn shuffle off and then back on the shuffle order changes.

And for anyone using Foobar on a desktop:  if you close and re-start Foobar the shuffle order will change.
