Is there a way to export album/track information from an iTunes music library into, say, a comma-separated values (CSV) file, or another spreadsheet-friendly format?
I'd like to be able to grab a snapshot of at least basic metadata – being artist name, album name, and track name – and copy into a spreadsheet or database software for reference, cleansing, & analysis. (If you want to call me a music nerd for wanting to data-mine information about my CD collection, go right ahead! :-)
Is there a way to do such a metadata export within iTunes itself, or else might there be a third-party tool that can extract such information from iTunes library storage? Or perhaps you have a quick & dirty homebrew script of your own you could share here?
I'm aware there is XML somewhere in the bowels of my iTunes library, and I'm a programming nerd too, but I'm hoping somebody has already invented this particular wheel.
