The playlist will open.


Click on a song to start playing the list of songs in order or choose Shuffle Play to hear them in random order.

For my 1970s search I found results in Playlists, Videos, Songs, Albums, and Artists. You can narrow the results to a category by clicking on it.


Next, click on Library.


You’ll see any saved playlists, recently played music, and items added to the library.


Click New playlist to create a playlist of songs. Name the playlist and decide if you want it to be visible to the public.


If you like a song you’re listening to, just click that three-dot menu button and choose Add to playlist.


Then pick the playlist.


YouTube will try to sell you on purchasing a subscription to hear the music without ads and receive other benefits. You absolutely don’t have to do this, unless you want to.
