www.allmusic.com already has a music emotional categorization system. If someone were to write an app to automatically look up categorizations in this database and apply them to iTunes metadata, it would be absolutely awesome.

allmusic.com is also cool in its own right.

Here here! You are really on to something with this one. I have already spent way to much time just getting all the ID3 tags correct, there's no way I will spend all the time it takes to do this mood based system. However, if someone could write a script, that would get the mood info from allmusic.com, that would be perfect. I would even pay for it. Hear that smart people out there? In fact, I like the idea so much, I might have to learn how to program apple script to do it myself. I've been meaning to anyway. Seriously, this is the greatest idea I have heard in a long time. Please, please, please make it happen.

I tried to do this with perl and WWW::Mechanize, however the all music guide uses javascript extensively (probably to thwart just this type data theft!) which WWW::Mechanize cannot seem to deal with. Ah well...
