Very cool. The one thing I personally use a lot is the genre part of the
id3 tag. I don't have nearly as many records as you do (only 2616 songs)
but I find that I like to listen to an entire genre rather than specific
Do you think you could add more than Artist, Song Titles, and Albums by
which you can browse? Of course I personally would want genre ;)
