many years ago I had a script that allowed me to export a text file of selected tracks, I'm pretty sure it was from Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes ♫ - dougscripts.com (http://dougscripts.com/itunes/) but there's 100's of scripts on there now and I can't for the life of me track it down. Maybe it was a different site...
Doug has one that exports the "Library" that I've found but not one that exports a playlist etc with options of what info to include...

Any suggestions?

Cheers

iTunes itself will allow you to export a playlist to text or XML -it's at File > Library > Export Playlist. The plaintext format is tab-delimited so you can open it in Numbers/Excel and just remove the columns you don't need.

Otherwise you might be thinking of this script:
