Confused about search feature (possible bug?)

I'm little confused about the search engine. Let me make an example.

 

If I search for "Dreams Made Flesh", the dropdown shows 2 songs

 

[attachment 1]

 

 

but if I hit "Mostra tutti i risultati" (Show all results), I get no results!

 

[attachment 2]

 

Why?

 

There are 2 songs matching the search criteria!

 

Condused!

 

Have fun!

Sorry, my fault. I wrote "flash" instead of "flesh".

 

 

Note that with the wrong word "flash" I get the dropdown with 2 hit... strange anyway.

The two results may be showing up because the autofill recognizes the search string as the correctly-spelled word, while the "show all results" page is very finnicky about accepting just the right spelling. For example, sometimes a song with "It's" in the title shows up in the small top results box whether or not you include the apostrophe, but the full results page only includes songs spelled with the apostrophe. Just another tiny quirk in the desktop app. 

 

Anyway, just wanted to put in my two cents. Glad you found such a simple answer to your problem!
