I think I like Jonatan's idea of displaying the title, artist, and album
split across three lines better, but once again, I'll wait until I see
how it looks.

I realised this earlier on.  I took a look at the album covers code 
that resulted from those discussions, and it displays the album covers
in the album browser, rather than where the queue display is now.
But that's just one place you could show the album cover, and this is
just one place you could display queued songs.. I don't think either
location is final.
