In a playlist, is there a way to manually drag the songs to change the order in real time? I haven't found a way to do this.
For example, if you are DJ'ing a set and you want to move a song to play next by manually dragging it after the currently playing song.

You can do this in VLC, but I haven't seen it in Beatunes.

Thanks everyone. Any suggestions appreciated.

    Hey, I did some digging and discovered the answer to this question actually.
    You organize the playlist by "Index".

    I'm happy to comment on my own question with the answer that way if other
    people have the same question, it can maybe help them too!

    I take it back -- this method does not work. The songs are now playing out
    of order if I do it this way. I still need help on this question after all!

    Sorting by index should let you add songs wherever you like. Isn’t there even a context menu item, something like “insert after currently playing song”?
