Perform two-pass search for tracks in selected playlist

Emulates an iTunes searchbox query in the first pass, the track results of which are searched for an additional search term in a second pass (Song Name, Artist, Album Artist, Album, Category, Comments, Composer, Description, Genre, Grouping, Kind, Lyrics, Show, Year, and Sort tags). Final results can be assembled in a new Search Results playlist in iTunes as well as displayed in a sortable Results Window.
