I moved my library to a network server so TuneLyrics will no longer tag my songs. Still have a few thousand that need tagging with lyrics. Is there a way to sort by missing lyrics or better yet is there a way to set up a Smart Play List to do this?

Also I have a large classical selection not needing lyrics so would like to be able to add genres to the sort too.

Doug's No Lyrics to Playlist v2.0 (http://dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/ss.php?sp=nolyricstoplaylist) iTunes script creates a (non-smart) playlist of all your songs that do not have lyrics.

Thanks, this did the trick however I found a new problem. When the song is playing I can't save any tag info to it. I use an unRAID Linux server and wonder if it protects a file being accessed (played) so it can't be modified? Or is this common on all NAS devices?

I was going to play song copy/past lyrics from TuneLyrics but I guess I will have to modify my plain.

Anyone have any suggestions on a way to do this? I have 9346 songs in the playlist (many or most are classical or other not needing tags).

Also is there a way to modify the scrip (or Playlist) to exclude (or include) certain genres?

Found a way to do this by creating a Smart Playlist fist then running the script on that Playlist.;) Now I only have 1898 songs to worry about tagging.:eek:
