I tend to agree that keeping a few played songs may be useful as long as
they don't clutter the queue list.

The cluttering might be avoided by:

1) When closing rhythmbox, all played songs are removed from the queue,
so they will not show up anymore on the next launch.

2a) As just proposed by jonathan: Provide a 'remove played entries'

2b) Or a checkbox in the popup like 'remove played entries immediately'.
Which will put rhythmbox into Alzheimer mode, throwing away the entries
after playing.

so long,
