My Word compilation shows 2,073 song title entries so far. Not bad for a few hours.

The thing I find surprising is how few "multiples" there are. There are a few exceptions that each appear in 5 or 6 of the books, but not all that many. There are quite a few that are in two or three books, but even that amount of repetition is much lower than I would have expected, given the "family relationship" between the books.

With comments removed, book id once each, and one line per song title, I've got a 47 page TOC in Word. Of course that's at 12 pt type, so I can read it. I may have to cut back to 4 pt to save some disk space.
