Default Song Seek Question...

Ok, over the last month, I had We Belong Together on my song seek for fun to see how many times my radio would beep. Anywho, I had it in once but noticed it wouldn't beep when it would play on Slow Jamz, so I added it in my song seek too, then it wouldn't go off when it would play on StarLite. My question is, does 1 song have multiple song id#?
I understand why it would be different on StarLite because they edit hell off the song, but the Slow Jamz version is the same being played on Hits 1, Pulse, and Heart & Soul. No big deal since I have the album but I thought it was kinda...odd.

I've had the same with Strawberry Fields Forever by The Beatles. It alerts me when it plays on Classic Vinyl, Spectrum, etc, but not on 60's Vibrations. That's because the version I put in my song seek doesn't have the year at the end, so a different id. Maybe your song had the same.

I've noticed that song seek doesn't work if the spelling isn't exactly the same. Even if its off by an apostrophe or something small like that it wont work.

Default's spelled the same on every channel. I usually listen to the music stations online more than on my radio, but I always pondered why it happened

Yeah I have noticed the same thing if a song as the yaer behind on 60's vibrations and it has no year listed on when played on classic vynil then it will not show up on your song seek for both channels. Why can't they fis this so it can show up on both channels with the song seek?
