Windows 7: Windows Media Player - Artist under the wrong letter?

Windows Media Player - Artist under the wrong letter?

Yes, so it's kind of hard to explain, perhaps my English is not good enough.
But I think a picture will do:

Notice "The Blues Brothers" is under the B letter.
Now, I might be wrong, but it shouldn't look like that. Right?

Thanks in Advance!

It's probably best to skip the "The" like that... otherwise you could have a bunch of artists or title beginning with "The".

It is common to ignore articles (the, a, an) when sorting titles in English.
(Well common in some places that speak English at least.)

Media Player interprets the title as "Blues Brothers, The" (which is actually how it is written formally. "The" is written after the title. ex. "Last Samurai, The")
