Here's a followup. It appears that only ~some~ mp3's
give this error. I found some that work in playsound.
When I run `file` against the working files I see
it's of file type:
Apples_in_Stereo_-_Signal_in_the_Sky.mp3: MP3, 128
kBits, 44.1 kHz, JStereo
whereas a "bad" file is of type:
01_-_Stay_Where_You_Are.mp3: MP3 file with ID3 version
is there a problem with the way SDL_sound handles ID3
