    Hello everybody,

    I know some aplications for windows like sound crank let me do it, but i dont know how to mass them withour having to play all of them and clicking each song. After that i want them to sync it with the iphone so they show.

    And in the new itunes i am new on this i got all my huge collection but dont know how to choose some albums/ or single songs because all of them dont fit. in other words how to sync only some i choose.

    Or you can make many playlists (smart and regular ones, for different moods, artists, genres, etc), and place them in a Playlist Folder (or make a smart playlist to include all the playlists) that together fills up 12 GB or thereabouts...and then tell iTunes to sync some of your Playlists or even just the Playlist Folder (or the "collection" smart playlist):

    Download GimmeSomeTune! (donationware), which will grab the lyrics and add them for the currently playing song, and NeedleDrop, an AppleScript that automatically plays the first xx seconds of every song. Combine the two and you have your lyrics, and new songs that you play will automatically get lyrics.

    Can't help with the lyrics stuff, sorry, but another way to manage the song on your phone would be to select "manually manage music" and then just drag and drop what you want.
