another way is pausing the song and start playing again (but IMHO that's not an option)
Maybe the only thing that is left to do is, you can send feedback

Cheers, I'll look into that.
Whats worse though is that if I'm searching another part of my Library that I'm not currently playing and then switch between menus, I lose that placement and also can't use ctrl+L obviously.
Really hoping this is a bug and not a design choice, otherwise I may just go back to iTunes 10...

There's no reason that Apple software engineers cannot come to these discussion forums and read the issue we are having right here. Why should we have to go to their feedback section. This is the feedback section.

I 100% agree with you, but this is just a user to user forum and this is because the almighty Apple in the Sky has deciced it that way and there is nothing (except maybe giving them feedback) to change their ways !

Well I have left feedback for Apple now, so hopefully we get some answers soon enough.

Problem 1 - Ctrl-L doesn't work.
a) Show Sidebar enabled.
If a track is played from a playlist, then the user navigates to another playlist or library, then CTRL-L doesn't return the user to the track being played, but to the head of the playlist which is playing the track.
However, if a track is played from a library ("Music"), then the user navigates to a playlist, then CTRL-L does return the user to the track being played; the track is highlighted.
b) Show Sidebar disabled.
I found no scenario where Ctrl-L didn't do as expected.
Problem 2 - Show in playlist doesn't work
a) Show Sidebar enabled
Highlight a track, anywhere (in a Playlist), right-click. From the context menu select Show in Playlist, and select to show the track in another playlist, then the head of the selected playlist is shown and the track is not shown.
However, doing the same, but selecting to Show in Playlist, but the playlist is a library ("Music") does work, the song is highlighted in the library.
b) Show Sidebar disabled
I found no scenario where Show in Playlist doesn't work as expected
I do note the new features in the box at the top (technical description!) also don't work as implied by their description when Show Sidebar is enabled.
For example "go to current song" has the same problem as CTRL-L; and show in playlist in that context also doesn't work.
What does work is the context menu in the mini-album cover in the box at the top, where it says eg "go to Alice Cooper" or "go to the best of Alice Cooper" or "go to School's Out".
