Setting gap between songs in iTunes/iPod (NOT gapless)

How do you set the playback gap between songs in iTunes and/or the iPod? A CD or vinyl record normally has a small gap between songs, but my iPod has only a very short gap (and seems to cutoff the very ends of songs) when playing back. I have the same problem in iTunes (6, not 7). And no, I'm not talking about gapless playback; I don't understand why so many seem to want that - I want the 'normal' gap. Anybody?

In iTunes Preferences, head to the Playback pane and disable Crossfade. That might get rid of some of the overlap you don't like.

There are many bands (Pink Floyd, Marillion and many more) that have songs that are joined together without a gap. Also when you listen to a live recording the gap is annoying. So it's quite understandable why so many want that. It's not to join tracks of a totaly different genre.

OK, I was told in another thread to open a new thread for this, but I already had this one with no working solutions. I have tried everything that I can think of, and crossfade is indeed turned off, but I still get some songs cut off before the end and running into the next song. This happens in both iTunes and iPod, but I notice it more with the iPod (maybe because I use it with headphones and it has a more jarring effect that way).

EDIT: Also, I use the iPod much more than iTunes, which hardly ever gets used except to import songs (all at AAC 128kbps).
