My favourite: "Several species of small furry animals gathered
together in cave and grooving with a pict" (Pink Floyd, UmmaGumma).

I have top-levels for Rips and New entries. The latter have not yet
been classified (i.e., accepted or rejected).

I use underscores instead of spaces for convenience, and two
(sometimes three)-digit track numbers, e.g.

    Pink_Floyd/
      The_Wall/
        101_In_The_Flesh.mp3
        ...
        113_Goodbye_Cruel_World.mp3
        201_Hey_You.mp3
        ...
        213_Outside_The_Wall.mp3

Everything is in a database, for easy (command line) querying:
