    Why do some of my single songs (which aren't part of an album or a compilation) appear as an "album" - with no artwork - when I turn my iPod sideways?

    It's a bit annoying for the "neatness" of my album catalogue.

    Or better yet, you can get the Cover Art for the singles and it'll show in Cover Flow.

    Yeah ^. You can find most of the artwork on Google. Always go for the highest resolution too; helps it not be blurred.

    Yeah I usually look for ones that are as close to 300x300px as possible while keeping the file size at least 15kb or less.

    Another easier way though is to just to right click the song and click "Get Album Artwork", and in a matter of seconds, the picture for your album will appear. But make sure you have the name of the song's respective album because iTunes uses that data to find the artwork based on what you've typed for the song's album.

    My biggest pet peeve is album artwork that is all blurry and stretched. I HATE it.
