It's been bugging me for a while now. I know I've been doing it incorrectly. My use of quotes that is. After some targeted googling, I think I have it now...
  • only use single quotes for quotes within double quotes
  • (obviously) use double quotes when quoting things others have said
  • don't put double quotes around titles of movies, books, CDs and plays that contain more than three acts (WTF?), use underlining or italics
  • use double quotes for titles of articles, chapters of books, songs, short stories and One-act plays (okaaay).
There's a lot more detail on how to do this absolutely correctly, but I'm really not going to worry too much if I can just get the above right.
