    Does anyone know if there is an automator program that will add a bogus album name to all of my songs that currently do not have an album associated with it. I say this because when I search by artist it goes straight to their albums so it does not allow me to see the songs by them that I neglected to attach an album to. Thanks once again

    You can do this pretty easily without downloading anything.

    Click on the Library icon in the left-hand column, then the "All (98723728 Artists) entry in the top middle pane.

    Next, in the column view in the main pane, click on the Album column. Now, everything is sorted by album name. Click on the first song, then scroll down until you find the last entry with no album name. Shift-click on that last song, and now you have all titles with no album selected.

    Press Cmd-I, and say "yes" to the warning about editing multiple items. You can now enter a dummy album name for the whole lot of them.
