how have you made this playlist? I used a 'find' command and redirect the 
output into a file.

No wonder. Either you quote your filenames like
"/music/d/m4/ANNOINTED - UNDER THE INFLUENCE     NA.mp3"
or you escape them:
/music/d/m4/ANNOINTED\ \-\ UNDER\ THE\ INFLUENCE\ \ \ \ \ NA.mp3

In both cases 'sed' would help you to do this with a single command for the 
whole playlist file!
