Audio Playlist

I am trying to build a webpage that can play multiple playlist(albums). The problem I have is that when a song ends on the other playlist the next songs continues playing from the playlist(album) before the one that was currently playing.

Here is the JavaScript code I got from YouTube.

function audioPlayer(){ var currentSong = 0; $("#audioPlayer")[0].src = $("#playlist li a")[0]; $("#playlist li a").click(function(e){ e.preventDefault(); $("#audioPlayer")[0].src = this; $('.playp').addClass('hide'); $('.pausep').removeClass('hide'); $("#audioPlayer")[0].play(); $("#playlist li").removeClass("current-song"); currentSong = $(this).parent().index(); $(this).parent().addClass("current-song"); });

$("#audioPlayer")[0].addEventListener("ended", function(){

    $("#playlist li").removeClass("current-song");
    $("#playlist li:eq("+currentSong+")").addClass("current-song");
    $("#audioPlayer")[0].src = $("#playlist li a")[currentSong].href;

Without knowing what the rest of the code is doing, this is a bit of a guess.

The variable currentSong is reset when the audioPlayer function runs.

So when does it run?
