Hi, could you upload (attach w/paperclip maybe) the file in questions, or at least a representative sampled version?
What do you know about the structure of the data? Specifically, we need to know what determines the position of the song title in the string.

Does it start at a fixed position? Is there a separator character, like a tab, between fields on the line?

Do you have any code written at all that his should fit into? If so, upload that as well, please.

Regards,

Ingo U
