Display/export a text file list of chosen tag data in library or playlist

OS X 10.8 and later only. This script will display an alphabetical list of your choice of the Albums, Artists, Album Artists, Composers, Genres, Groupings, Shows, Movements, Works or Track Names in a selected iTunes library (Music, Movies, TV Shows, and so on) or playlist. This list can then be saved to a text file.

This script used to create a text file of selected tags in the entire iTunes library only, but I have kept its old (and perhaps less-descriptive name) for legacy purposes.

Action shot:

Make A Text List in action

Select a tag and library or playlist and the script will display an alphabetical list of your choice. The list is exportable to a text file.
