The New One @ 09:58 am

psykoboy2:
This morning at the radio station I work at we got a package in the mail. I damn near shat myself when the PD threw the cd to me and it was "Vertigo".

So I pop it into my Windows Media Player and it lists as: Danni Ubeda - "Besame".

Any one have any idea why it did that? Perhaps for security purposes or something, I dunno.

Anyway, I love the song.

Lots of CDs share checksum values. I'm sure that's just the first CD listed in the CDDB database.

I didn't get it from the CDDB.

It's something written into the coding of the CD. In other words, if I put this in my car and my car's player is able to show the track title and artist...it would show up as that.

it's a common thing that happens with promo cds. i have no idea why it does this. i used to work in radio back in the late 80s/early 90s, and some of the stuff i've retained from those days do the same thing. i used to think they recycled cds, but that was a naive notion.
