If you have the shuffle and repeat options on, it does this. In case
someone wants to know the exact formula is the following (unrated is
treated as 3):
    weight = rating * log(time since last played)

There is a bug about having a better way of choosing play orders, and
making it more descriptive (how many people would realise the above),
and a patch. The problem is that the other ways of displaying them, like
a menu, are harder to use for people used to the "shuffle" and "repeat"
