How do you guys handle your non-album music (i.e. singles)?  This is how I set mine up:

Title: <the songs title>
Artist: <the artist of the song>
Album: Single
Album Artist: Single

When I say 'Single' above, I literally use the word 'Single' in those fields to denote I do not have the full album for that artist and track.  All songs tagged like this show nicely in the Albums view in 7MC as one album called 'Single', but the artist names do not show in the artist view for some reason.  I don't want each of my 1000 odd singles to show as separate albums in the Albums view as that would ruin my navigation in this view.

How do others handle their music 'Singles'?

I thought a default singles title was the actual single name.

All my singles I have left alone and they show up fine in artist view.

I have had issues with the album artist, so now I make sure contributing artist is also set with the same name. Contributing artist can have multiple names as far as I am aware.

Hi browned,

I don't quite follow you, but would like to.  I put the title of the song in the Title field (i.e. the single's name).  I can find the single in the 'Track view', but not in the Artist view in Media Center.  This is the bit which is driving me crazy.

If I want to listen to MC Hammer's biggest hit, I can't find him listed under the Artist view.  And searching for the name is also confusing, because I can never remember if the song is called "Hammertime", "Can't Touch This", or "U Can't Touch This".  This is only one example by the way :)
