It worked fine with keys 1 through 20.
It failed when I added keys 21 through 40.

BTW, you can clean this up a bit, by not using [number]=>value,

$playme = array(
array("1960","1","A Summer Place","Percy Faith Orch","6001.mp3"),
array("1960","2","He'll Have To Go","Jim Reeves","6002.mp3"),
etc...
);

Also I would suggest considering externalizing this data. Put it in a
file and load that file. A CSV seems like a good choice. If you're
going to have a lot more data, then a database would be a better choice.

Don't you ever proofread before posting this nonsense?

You have a file named "6116..mp3" ? (That's just one typo I noticed)

This is the problem. You haven't actually written php, you only claim to
have written php, and the interpreter isn't being fooled by the claim.

Why you're pissing about setting sequential associative indexes on the
array elements I have no idea, but I'm sure it makes sense on
planetRichard.

Likewise, I'm sure there is a very good reason indeed for storing
integers as strings.

If you want to generate your playlist in a random order (which is where I
suspect this is going) then I would use the following:

(a) Set the array up as follows:

$playme = array(
array(1960,1,"title","artist","file"),
array(1960,1,"title","artist","file"),
array(1960,1,"title","artist","file")
);

_^_ By the way, this semi-colon is *NOT* *OPTIONAL*

then:

shuffle($playme);

foreach($playme as $a)
echo "{$a[2]} by {$a[3]}, number {$a[1]} in {$a[0]}, {$a[4]}\n";

Here's an amazing fact about PHP:

The elements of an array do not have to all be of the same type!

True, I could do it that way.
But I am using the keys mainly as a guide for me.

I have a complete database online.
But for this purpose, it's easier to use an array.

That's what you're here for. ;-)

Instead of this hobby, he can probably get a paying job at
healthcare.gov. He'd fit right in!

An optional comma can be inserted after the last array() parameter, though,
which is useful when you have to initialize with more elements.

ISTM that this naturally follows from using dynamic (run-time) instead of
static (compile-time) type-checking. [Java (which uses static type-
checking) can do this as well, but you have to wrap the value in an object
and have to use a wrapper class that accepts object references.]
