thoughts while fiddling with my mp3 player

My sorting and cleaning up of my mp3 files is being severely hampered by the The problem. Apparently some smarter software just ignores the The, but Creative's is too dumb. So I have to decide how I want to do names -- "The Name", "Name, The", or just Name. And if I use the The, I have to decide who gets one. Is it The Beatles, or the Beatles? It started as The Beatles, but these days you usually see it as the Beatles in casual use. So many choices! Argh!

Also, I was listening to Billy Joel's "They Didn't Start the Fire" and had the vaguely horrifying realization that the earlier events in the song are farther away from today than World War One was from my birth. Yes, I felt old.
