It would require the users put more effort, but you could have the system read the text or maybe title and match a string like "[PS]" for "Preferred Song". (This is just an example string, you could probably make a better one.)
The user would then maintain the [PS] string on their own songs and the system would then choose this thread out of the array of threads from that user.
If the user has more than one thread with this string, most recent.
The user can add and remove this tag from their own threads already so there's no work there.
