    Hey guys since this is my first thread I wanted to say what's up and also I had a question. In itunes when I list the songs in alphabetical order by artist the artist with numbers starting in their name like 2pac or 50 cent (examples) will show up at the bottom where as the artist starting with the letter A start at the top. Is there a way to make it so the artists that start with a number to go above the letter A? So when listing by artists the numbers start at the beginning of the alphabet.

    You could always put a space before the number...

    Edit: Just kidding, I guess that doesn't work? :confused: Sorry...

    That's something Apple does intentionally. Don't ask me why. :(

    iTunes used to put artists starting with a number first, so you could try going to an older version. Unfortunatey, I don't remember how far back you would have to go (6.x or even 5.x).

    Another option is similar to a previous post: put a space in front of the artist's name, but not in the Artist field. Instead copy the name to the Sort Artist field and then add a space or maybe aaa to the front. The Sort Artist field isn't shown, so you will still see the correct name.
