Automatically add lyrics to the entire iTunes Library
Authored by: Power Factor on Sep 24, '05 05:20:05PM

Seems to me that this is what pearLyrics application is supposed to be able to handle by itself, but the way it is implemented means that the song must be played while pearLyrics is open. Hence the need for the script.
Another problem seem to be that some lyrics are listed as chords in whatever database it accesses therefore they aren't copied (only lyrics are copied).

the song doesn't need to be played, but itunes must be running while you cache lyrics for playlist.
if it wasn't, the lyrics will still be on your computer in pearLyrics' cache - from there you can get them over to itunes using the script.
(at least that's how i explain it to myself)

My experience is similar: pL caches the lyrics when I tell it to, but doesn't copy the lyrics to the ID3 tag until I actually play the song. And this didn't even work until the developer sent me an updated version that has a fix for case-sensitive disks...
And, yes, iTunes is open during all this.
