Smart playlists that truly follow your mood
Authored by: lagroue on May 07, '04 06:04:08PM

Yeah...
Because of my system, I had to put away a rating so that I could tell with the iPod wether a tune is not well tagged... ** = to be re-tagged.

Too bad we have only five stars...

If you set your rating via an AppleScript, you can set the rating anywhere from 0 to 100 (1 star = 20 points, 2 = 40, etc.). That's the way I rate all my songs...because 5 stars isn't enough...but 100 points...now that's something to work with. I just assign a keyboard shortcut to the following AppleScript to rate the currently selected tune...

tell application "iTunes"
	set curr_track to the name of selection
	set curr_artist to the artist of the selection
	set curr_rating to the rating of the selection as text
	set new_rating to text returned of (display dialog ("Rate "" & curr_track & "" by " & curr_artist) default answer curr_rating buttons {"Rate"} default button 1)
	set rating of selection to (new_rating as number)
end tell

To change the script to run on the currently playing track, change everywhere the script says "selection" to "current track".
