Queue songs into iTunes' Party Shuffle from the Library Apps
If you are playing songs using iTunes' new Party Shuffle playlist, just control-click any song in your iTunes library and select "Play Next in Party Shuffle". The song will appear in Party Shuffle next to the song currently playing.

[robg adds: I don't normally run contextual menu hints, but this one is very useful and very easy to overlook -- I know I hadn't noticed it yet.]

You can also select multiple songs and add them to the Party Shuffle in this way, but you cannot select genres, artists or albums in browse mode and add them.

For what it's worth: here is an AppleScript routine sent to me from our friend J Nicholas Jitkoff of Blacktree, Inc that will send a track reference as the next to play in Party Shuffle.
tell application "iTunes"
	if selection is not {} then
		my ps_play_next_ref(item 1 of selection)
	end if
end tell

-- Append Ref to Party Shuffle after current song
on ps_play_next_ref(theTrackReference)
	tell application "iTunes"
		set thePlaylist to playlist "Party Shuffle"
		try
			play thePlaylist
			set isPlaying to container of current track is thePlaylist
			if (isPlaying) then set startIndex to index of current track
		on error
			set isPlaying to false
			set startIndex to 0
		end try
		tell thePlaylist
			set oldTracks to a reference to (every track whose 
				index > startIndex and 
				index is less than or equal to (count tracks))
			duplicate theTrackReference to thePlaylist
			duplicate oldTracks
			delete oldTracks
		end tell
	end tell
end ps_play_next_ref
In this snippet I've sent it a ref to the selected track. It ain't glamorous, but it woiks.

Ever since this feature was available Quicksilver has been able to do this with its iTunes plugin (select a song/album/whatever in Quicksilver and you can set it to play next)

This is so cool.. can't think of how many times I've wished for just such a solution.. I'm glad somone took the time to point this out !
Another cool thing about this.. say your party shuffle is play music from a specific playlist.. you can go to your library, and control click a song from another playlist.. have it add it next to your party shuffle.. but even though your party shuffle is playing from a particular play list.. the song you control clicked to add next does not get added to that playlist.
