The best free ITunes controller, lyrics down loader I know of. It is not as accurate in obtaining lyrics as TunesArt 1.2.2. However, TuesArt 1.2.2 is no longer widely available. The new version costs $5- and, is apparently not nearly as functional. Anyway, GimmeSomeTunes offers almost everything you could possibly want in a controller. It is just not as customizable as the old TunesArt. Great Value- and, exceptional functionality nonetheless. Highly recommended!

GimmeSomeTune is completely wonderful.
The function is substantial and it is easy-to-use.
I believe that it is one which was most excellent in this software in many iTunes Controller.
I am thankful to the developer from the bottom of my heart.
I hope strongly this software is compatibility with 10.7.
OS which I am using now is 10.6.8.

still the only app that can automatically start when itunes launches, quit when itunes quits, and display lyrics attractively and quickly with a touch of a customisable keyboard shortcut.

I use Sizzling Keys for everything else, but keep this to display lyrics. And use Get Lyrical to grab lyrics; seems to be the only app that does it well.

Wish there was an app that combined all these functions satisfactorily, but there isn't.

Please attend to this fabulous app. Has started failing with 10.7 and I'm almost heartbroken. There is no better associative support app for iTunes.

Seems to no longer work with ITunes 10.3. It has been brilliant up to now.

I had the same problem with fetching lyrics. It wouldn't work. Get Lyrical is a great alternative. Thanks for the tip!
