Slow songs are great and all, but not if they're supposed to be fast songs.

Some songs on my iPod and through iTunes seem to be running slow - just enough to be noticeable and to drive me crazy. Songs that I've downloaded recently seem fine until I play them enough, and then it's almost like they wear out - what gives?

I noticed this about two months ago, only for certain songs on my iPod. I considered wiping it and starting again but then I noticed the same thing was happening when I played songs through iTunes on my computer, and I figured the problem might thus be replicated on the iPod if I tried wiping it. It's very subtle, but definitely there, it only seems to apply to the songs that I play regularly, and there's no other apparent trigger besides frequency. I'm not the only one to have this issue - I found other sufferers through googling, but every post I found about it (i.e. 1
) is unresolved.
Please help me, Hive! I'm cramming for exams until March and if my music keeps croaking, I'm not sure what that will say for my academic progress...!
Oh, for the record:
I run Windows 7 Premium 32-bit, I have an 80GB iPod classic (about three years old), and have iTunes 10.1.1.4. The problems didn't seem to start with an upgrade of iTunes, Windows software, or any damage/changes to my iPod other than just syncing.
