Moving playlist entry on iPad very slow

Just made a playlist - something I rarely do - and then tried to drag a few entries from near the bottom to near the top. It was terribly slow. There were about 60 items in the playlist, but as soon as the item I was dragging got to the top of the screen, it took a long time for the playlist to scroll down such that I could drop the entry at the top. This is with an iPad Pro 10.5”. Moreover I couldn’t find a way of dragging several items at once. Is the slowness normal behaviour? Is it acceptable? Could I have done it another way? Is there a way of dragging multiple items?
