Proper English Title Capitalization v4.0

For macOS 10.15 Catalina and later only. Capitalizes the first letter of each word in your choice of the Name, Artist, Album Artist, Album, Comments, Composer, Grouping, Movement, Work, or Show tags of the selected tracks, but based on rules of title capitalization in the English language. Thus, "what it feels like for a girl (above and beyond 12'' club mix)" becomes "What It Feels Like for a Girl (Above and Beyond 12'' Club Mix)". Two user-editable Exception Lists can handle words that should not be title-capped or modified. Dry Run feature enables you to see what would be changed displayed in a separate Dry Run Log window.

Action shot:

When "Dry run" is checkmarked, the Dry Run Log window displays what would have been changed without affecting the actual tracks' tags. For simplicity, I only selected a single track in this example screenshot.
