Custom order of playlist items?

I'm wondering if there's a way to make playlists retain a certain order. In other words, I want my songs to be able to go back to a certain order even after I choose to arrange them by artist or track title from the columns. Right now, once they're sorted that way, they get organized and I'll have to go back and arrange them to my liking all over again. This is mainly a problem for me because I want 4000+ songs in one playlist and I want them all in a personalized order. Is there a way to do this with columns? The only way I can currently think of would be to assign a track number to all of them but the playlist is always growing so I don't want to edit every single song to add a track title...

If you need to save a playlist to file, save it to file. The solution is already at your fingertips.
There's no reason for anyone to implement something ever-so-slightly-different than already existing functionality, just because Flagfighter or jmundin2 started a forum thread about it.

Playlists exist to be rearranged, manipulated, duplicated, created and deleted. If you can come to accept that fact, half of you imaginary problems don't exist anymore.
