iPod menu question

I've got idrive and the bmw professional radio on my 2011 335xi. My iPod plays fine, but I don't find the menu drill down options particularly useful or simple. For example, on my Honda Pilot, I can scroll by artist, select an artist and it will show all the songs from that particular artist. That's a simple scroll-click/select-scroll-click/select to get to a song I want to hear. On my BMW, I must first select the artist from one submenu, scroll down to "song" and select a song, then go out and hit play. Just seems a little overdone for trying to find songs by artist. Am I missing something here? Is there a way to display the iPod menu in a simpler way that just shows all artists and allows a one-click drill down to the songs?

This is driving me a little nuts right now

You can also use the voice commands to make it easier for yourself. It's all I use now unless the artist has a weird name and the speech recognition won't recognize it.
