Creating a Readable List of Playlist songs on Mac

1. Select Export… by two-finger/right-clicking on the playlist.

2. Export as plain text.

3. I had to do a little command-line scripting to change carriage returns to new lines and select only the first two tab-limited columns:

cd ~/Desktop
cat Power of Two.txt | tr 'r' 'n' | awk -F 't' '{print $1 "::" $2}' > powerOfTwo.txt
