I am looking for program which will automaticly rename songs and albums by comparing the actual acoustics and played /perceived?

Basically, use Shazam some way?

TuneUp worked best for me, though it's pretty pricey at 39.95 USD per year, or 49.95 USD one off:

Intelligently fix mislabeled song information (like “Track 01”), add missing album cover art, remove duplicate tracks, view lyrics to your favorite songs

TunesCleaner is also good:

With TunesCleaner, you can:

  • Download the album artworks automatically
  • Download lyrics of songs automatically
  • Delete the duplicated songs or songs which iTunes can not locate
  • Create playlists based on albums and artists
  • Rename selected genres in the batch mode

Equinux's Song Genie can do this, though it's not perfect.


I achieved good results with MusicBrainz Picard. This is a stand-alone program, but it can be used in combination with iTunes, too.

As in Shazam, audio fingerprints can be used for detection.
