  I thought I remembered seeing something like this recently, so I checked.

  There were a couple of small scripts posted upon the Perl Monks website
 a while back that would appear to do the right thing for you, I've been

 songs are badly organized, I tend to just end up using a search tool to
 search music by genre prior to playing when I can't find what I want!
