I second this feature, though I'd actually find it more useful in 
Watch Recordings. I waste a huge amount of time trying to find a 
particular episode by subtitle from the 100 or so episodes of Curious 
George I've amassed for my kid.

So I guess I'm requesting that, if you do write it, it be done in 
such a way that it could be implemented in other areas of the code, 
as well, and not tied to just Music.
