The Annoying The

I was adding songs into my music player. This time I am using Banshee on my Linux desktop computer. One thing that brings to my attention is that I've got songs unordered. Looking carefully, it is the annoying "the".

Some of the songs in my collection has the word "The" as part of the artist (band) name. Some don't. An example would be "The Beatles". They ended up in different list; "The Beatles" and just "Beatles". Aaarrrggghhh. So annoying. One of the problems with English, I suppose.

(On a side note. What is the correct name of the band, "The Beatles" I suppose?)

Oh, by the way, iTunes recognizes this and ignores the "The" when sorting the artists. Good job! (And I have just realized that Nightingale also knows the The. yayyy)

Sejuk malam ini ku rasa dan terasa tenang perjalan hidup ku dengan keheningan yang ku lalui bersama malam,bintang berkedip seakan melihat ku di saat sandaran hati tertupah padanya.
