[Search] Provide detailed information in list view of song search results

When searching for a song, there is often more than 1 version. In many cases, the actual songs were the same, only on different albums, but sometimes there is a difference like remaster or even remix version.

But it is hard to find out unless I start each song to listen into or read the detailed information. See this screenshot for a search of "Where Are We Going? Marvin Gaye" (this comes from an intent by the Shazam app, which puts the title before the artist), there are several versions, including remixes.

Which one should I listen to and why?
Which one to save for later in a playlist, when I have no time to listen immediately as I overheard or shazammed a song on the radio or in a shop?
Your app will start the first song, which is often okay, so thumbs up for a mostly good algorithm. But some more details would be helpful. Maybe each long line could start scrolling after some time. Or you could use the 6 redundant lines of "Song . Marvin Gaye" to indicate which is the newest / most remastered / most popular version, and which are remixes?
