I like music to be played on the background and changing tracks by keyboard shortcut like in musikcube: Is there an alternative for musikcube on Mac OS X Lion ?

There are so many apps to control iTunes via keyboard, it's almost an embarrassment of riches. Quicksilver, Launchbar, Butler .. to name but a few. This is nice and cheap though. – Paul Eccles Aug 5 '11 at 10:45

I use CoverSutra - not free, but pretty cheap, and I like the ability to have the album cover displayed on the desktop.
