Apple Music offers a handy feature that lets you “love” a song by clicking the heart. While the feature is intended to help Apple recommend songs to you based on what you like, many people use this to mark their favorite tunes. So if you want to view all of the songs you mark as “love,” where do you look?
Apple doesn’t make it accessible as far as providing a playlist of your loved songs. We have a tutorial that shows you how you can do that yourself with a Smart Playlist. But you might simply want to look through those songs for one in particular.
If you have a Mac, you can do this in the Music app. There doesn’t currently appear to be a way to do it on iOS, unfortunately. Here’s how to find your loved songs in Apple Music on Mac.
Find loved songs in the Music app
There is a caveat with seeing the tunes you mark; the songs need to be in your Library. So if you mark a song on Beats 1, for example, you won’t see it unless you add it to your Library.
1) Open the Music app on your Mac.
2) Click Songs on the left under Library.
3) Right-click a column at the top and in the drop-down box, click Love so it has a checkmark next to it.
4) When the Love column appears, click the column header to sort it and all songs marked with a heart should be at the top. If they are at the bottom instead, just click the column header again.
Wrapping it up
While the “love” a song feature may not work the way many people expect it to, you can still find those songs you mark in your Library and create a playlist of them if you like.
Hopefully down the road, Apple will make songs we love easily accessible to us.
