Wait...my iPod does what?

Postby jonas » Tue Nov 09, 2010 10:11 pm

I suck at reading manuals, otherwise I might have known about this. I was listening to All Delighted People today when I accidentally hit that middle button while trying to adjust the volume. No big deal, I just cycled through the options like I always do...except this time at the end of the cycle, song lyrics popped up. Wait...what? Lyrics?

Okay, so according to the manual, I can add lyrics to all my songs just by pasting them into "track info" on iTunes. But the weird part is, I didn't do that for my new friend Sufjan...somehow they came along with the EP I downloaded from that site somebody (Jake?) linked.

I've checked a bunch of other albums, and so far I haven't found another one that came with lyrics...which seems crazy, because that seems like something obvious at least some of them might want to include.

Technology, man. Always surprising me.

I downlaoded a shareware app a while ago that could go out and add album art and/or lyrics to songs. I think it was called iArt. But I am surprised more artists (or iTunes) don't do this automatically for you.

What middle button? Above the volume on the touch screen the middle button is "Play/Pause." The external volume control is either up or down, no middle button.

Are you using a Zune?
