You can easily call Mucoce over a status item:
It shows you the current tracks name, artwork, rating and artist . You can also see how long the track has been playing as well as its total duration.
You can open the menu by rightclicking the icon in the menubar or by pressing control + leftclick on the icon in the menubar.
If you're using Growl, this application also has another nice feature for you:
It notifies you over Growl when another track starts playing.
- lets you control more...
