When you join songs in iTunes, the songs play together -- one after the other -- even if you've shuffled all of the songs on your list. Additionally, the songs always travel together, meaning that if you load one of the songs to one of your Apple devices, you also automatically load the other song. Initiate this type of pairing by selecting both of the songs from your iTunes song list.

Step 1

Launch iTunes, and then click "Songs" to view your list of songs.

Step 2

Hold down the "Ctrl" key as you click to select the two songs you want to join together.

Step 3

Right-click either of the songs you selected and click "Get Info" in the context menu. Click "Yes" when a dialog box appears asking if you want to edit the information for multiple items. The Multiple Item Information dialog box appears.

Step 4

Select the "Options" tab, and then click to place a check mark to the left of "Part of a Compilation."

Click the drop-down arrow to the right of "Part of a Compilation," select "Yes," and then click "OK." The files are now joined.
