  Find the Position Index of Elements‏‏

I have an XML snippet as in the following:

    <title>(I Just) Died In Your Arms</title>
    <album>80 Popular Hits</album>
    <artist>Cutting Crew</artist>
    <date added="03-24-2009"/>

This is one of the songs out of categories I have in my xml file, and
currently I use XPath expression as in the following:
/music_songs/song[category='Rock' as an example to find all the songs
in the Rock category.

I need to also be able to pull the position index of the song elements
that I pull from the above expression, and use that in VB.NET for
process. I tried using count(), position(), but they seem to be able
to detect, but they cannot give me a list like


for the index id of the search list. Is there a particular expression
I need to use here?

Thanks for your help.
