Setting rating changes multiple different songs

Sometimes when I change the rating of one song, another song with a similar name changes as well.
Here's a video of it: link

Playback statistics are now pinned to a combination of artist + album + disc number + track number + track title information, contrary to pre-3.0 versions which would pin data to file paths.
The consequences of this behavior are:
  • Statistics are shared between redundant copies of the same tracks - useful when you keep separate copies of your music in different formats such as lossy + lossless.
  • Automatic carrying over of statistics when acquiring the same music in another format, as long as tags match.
  • No risk of data loss when moving files around or between computers.

So because it uses "artist + album + disc number + track number + track title information" to store the rating; songs with a no artist  + album + disc number + track number would get the same rating if the title is the same?
The songs with the issue are all "Mod music", which only contain a track title.
Is there any way to fix this? Maybe also check file format?

Tag them properly?

If the files themselves can't be tagged you can use m-tags.

I think there were also one or two mods for the playback statistics component with adjustable settings, such as what combination of tags/information is used to differentiate tracks. But they might be buggy or perhaps completely unusuable now. Test at your own risk.
