You have to specify the field filter: q=track:Thriller&type=track. To narrow down your search for a certain track you could use a combination of several filters, e.g. q=track:Thriller artist:Michael Jackson album:Scream&type=track. The length of the query currently seems to be limited on 250 characters
The 'type' parameter specifies the type of the searched item.
I'm wondering how it can work at all with your invalid query.

No, you do not HAVE to specify the field filter.
