iTunes 11: Two ways to quickly add songs to Up Next Apps
Up Next, the feature in iTunes 11 that (sort of) replaces iTunes DJ, where you could queue up songs for a listening party, or just for your work day, offers many ways to add music. But if you want to add songs quickly to Up Next, here are two ways you can do so.

First, just drag an item from the iTunes library onto the iTunes LCD, the display at the top of the window that shows what's playing. This can be a single song, an album, or a playlist. The iTunes LCD will show a blue border when you bring the item over it, and the Up Next icon will flash with art of the item you have added.

The second way is to press the Option key and hover your cursor over an item. The track number next to its name will change to a + icon. Click that icon to add it to Up Next. (Thanks to David Chartier for this one.)

Apparently there is no way to add a Podcast to "Up Next". The drag to LCD and/or hover with the option key fail to work.

Anyone figure out how to "Add the selection to Up Next"?

Strangely enough adding all kinds of media to Up Next works via playlists.
I guess you figured this out yourself by now, but maybe it helps others coming here.

There's also option+enter, e.g. while searching from the miniplayer. Unfortunately, this seems to add the song twice.

You can change the media kind to music - though this may have other effects.
