I never used to like Spotlight on the Mac (tiger) but as I learn more about it, it gets better and better. Read the tip below from the Apple website and try the following searches I have tested and found to work in Spotlight:
If you want to narrow your search right off the bat, you can add a category when you type the term in the Search field. For example, if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking for a song named Ã¢â‚¬Å“VertigoÃ¢â‚¬Â (by the band U2), thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no sense in having Spotlight bring you a list of email messages from your ear doctor, right? So if you give Spotlight a hint as to what youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking for, you can get just songs as your Spotlight search results. HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s how: Type Ã¢â‚¬Å“kind:musicÃ¢â‚¬Â (with no space in between or quotations), then add one space and type Ã¢â‚¬Å“VertigoÃ¢â‚¬Â (again, you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need the quotes). So your search will look like this: kind:music Vertigo. Now it will only search songs, and youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll only get song results. Schweet!
