Lyrics Via LyricWiki will use the name and artist of the selected or playing track as the basis for a SOAP query to LyricWiki.org; fruitful results will be displayed so you can choose to apply the lyrics to the particular track.
If I had a dollar for all the Correspondents who sent me the AppleScript SOAP call used in this script, I could take a week off. Well, maybe take a long weekend. Information on LyricWiki’s SOAP webservice is here.
No Lyrics to Playlist has been updated to version 2.0. It will search a selected playlist for all tracks in the selected playlist that do not contain lyrics and copy them to a playlist it will create called “No Lyrics”. Includes a second script to clear the “No Lyrics” playlist of tracks with lyrics.
This set of scripts was written by Herwin Lans and originally posted about four years ago. Because of changes in iTunes, it required updating and, particularly, the “Clear No Lyrics Playlist” script needed an over-haul.
Purchase Date to Comments will copy the purchased date–if available–of the selected tracks to the comment tag of each. You can choose either UTC format (“2008-12-27”) or localized Short date format (“12/27/08”). UTC dates will be placed at the beginning of any existing comment text to allow tracks to be sorted by comment. Short dates will be placed after any existing comment text. (In either case, Smart Playlists could be created using “Comment contains 2008-12” or “Comment starts with 2008-12”.)
