2 pieces of advice.  

1)  Omigod ME?  Use NT, or linux.  You will crash a lot

2)  don't use position notation in SQL.  
select * from songdetail where some_column_name=2000 and some_other_column=''
  and yet_another_column=''
will be much more robust.  If the table is ever deleted and recreated,
it is not unusual for columns to move, and in any event the way you 
are doing it requires you to count arguments exactly.

2b) is this parsed as a subselect?
