Ah, I see--yes, it does do that! There's a difficulty,
though--in this case I have a song whose file is 07songtitle.ogg. The actual
title of the song, which ogg123 recognizes as "Song Title" would be a
good internet search, but the search that gets performed is for
"07songtitle". This behavior might be beyond my ability to fix, as I'm not very
technically apt.

Thank you!
