    umm, the play button/pause is the stop button. I use a customized M-Beat to control my iTunes, I made a Synergy skin for it.

    C'mon <b> Logic Man </b> ...

    Just use logic, man.

    You can get a program called "Key X-Ing" that lets you assign the "F" keys certain functions in iTunes if you really wanna go all out. I hit F8 and iTunes pauses. Good stuff.

    The play button actually pauses the song. The only way to stop a song, is go to a different playlist while the song is playing, and the play/pause button changes to a stop button. click it. no more playing. but why bother with stopping a song, why not just click the play button or hit space bar, and it will pause. essentially its the same thing.

    Either click on a new playlist (or the radio tuner, or the Apple Music Store) while a song is playing, and the pause button changes to a stop button, or click on one of the above while a song is paused and the controls reset.

    I guess I misunderstood the question, I mean it stops regardless, I was wondering what logic was talking about. So why do you need it to stop completely? Just out of curiosity.
