iTunes syncs the same handful of songs on every sync

Every time I sync my iPod (Touch 2G), there are about 20 or 30 songs that iTunes insists on syncing. I usually sync just to get a couple of updated podcasts, but have to wait while it needlessly syncs the songs. The songs themselves seem to be fine, as I've listened to some just before it thought they needed to be synced. Nothing is changing on the files themselves - I haven't been updating any tags or album art or anything. Any idea why it thinks these same songs need to be synced every time, and how I can tell it otherwise?

These are all good responses, but the problem seemed to clear itself up - it hasn't behaved this way in quite some time. I'll chalk it up to iTunes upgrades or something, but I didn't want to leave this question hanging out without a resolution.

When your device is plugged in and iTunes is running, click on your device in the left column. From there you can see all of your sync settings. You can turn all syncing off except for podcasts, for example.
