Um, why don't you just glue them together and cart them as *one cut*?

This problem goes back at *least* to "We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions", 
which was both sides of a single in the early 80s, and that's what radio did:
it carted them together, so it could play them together.  I'm always sourly
amused that karaoke labels don't realize this, and track them separately...
