Well, we definetely shouldnt need to make a playlist first before
playing. But I think we can make it work quite naturally, but we need to
think about it carefully.

For example, we could make the queue contain the same songs as the
currently shown view, but reorderable, sortable, and a way to really
shuffle them. That way you can 100% control playback order, and you can
still see and control what song is playing in the library view.
