    In the Spotlight pref pane I've selected all the check boxes etc and I haven't (knowingly) changed anything since it worked earlier on tonight.

    Any ideas what's gone wrong? I never realised I used it so much...

    Is the song file actually named Porcelain? Is the file kept on a drive that is indexed by Spotlight?

    Maybe try rebuilding your Spotlight database. The quickest way of doing this is to add your Hard Drive to the Privacy tab in Spotlight's System Preference pane, close System Preferences, and then remove it from the Privacy tab again. It'll take a little while to completely rebuild, remember. :)
