Copy chosen tag info from one set of tracks to a different set of tracks

OS X 10.8 and later. This applet will copy specfic tag data from one set of selected tracks to a second set of selected tracks. You can copy any combination of Enabled (checkbox), Song Name, Artist, Album, Album Artist, Composer, Genre, Grouping, Last Played Date, Rating, Loved, Plays, Lyrics, BPM, Artwork, Disc and Track info, Comments, Year and Sort Tags.

Use with thoughtfulness. Both sets of selected tracks should be sorted by Play Order/Manual Order (or at the very least using the same sorting) so the tag info is copied in the correct order from and to the intended tracks.

Only tracks in the local iTunes library are accessible. Apple Music's "For You", "New" and "Radio" tracks are inaccessible.
