lyrictagger

Automatically add lyrics to music files

Depends on eyeD3 for writing lyrics

Installation

First ensure that eyeD3 is installed

  • MacOS X

      brew install eyed3
    
  • Other Unix (one of the following)

      [sudo] easy_install eyed3
      [sudo] pip install eyed3
      [sudo] apt-get install eyed3
    

Then install lyrictagger

npm install -g lyrictagger

Example

Run with a music file as the first argument to gather and write lyrics to the file (lyrics snipped for brevity).

$ lyrictagger ~/Downloads/01\ Specular\ Reflection.mp3
processing: 01 Specular Reflection.mp3
[Music & lyrics by Between The Buried And Me]
[Prospect #1]

A twisted crash... vibrations forming my personal currency.
A lifeline... a sweatbox, the linear mind as one.
Who would have thought?
... SNIPPED ...

write these lyrics to /Users/dave/Downloads/01 Specular Reflection.mp3?
[y/N]: y
eyeD3_script exited with code 0

First, lyrictagger gathers and prints the lyrics it finds for the song, and then asks you if you'd like to write the lyrics to the file (supply --yes or -y to assume yes).

Then, assuming you say yes, it forks off eyed3 to write the lyrics to the file, and prints the exit code of eyed3.

Usage

You can run with --tags to view the metadata of a file.

$ lyrictagger --tags ~/Downloads/01\ Specular\ Reflection.mp3
processing: 01 Specular Reflection.mp3
{ title: 'Specular Reflection',
  artist: [ 'Between the Buried and Me' ],
  albumartist: [],
  album: 'The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues',
  year: '2011',
  track: { no: 1, of: 0 },
  genre: [],
  disk: { no: 0, of: 0 },
  picture:
   [ { format: 'jpg',
       data: <Buffer ff d8 ff e0 00 10 ...> } ],
  filename: '/Users/dave/Downloads/01 Specular Reflection.mp3' }

Run with --out to just print the lyrics.

$ lyrictagger --out ~/Downloads/01\ Specular\ Reflection.mp3
processing: 01 Specular Reflection.mp3
[Music & lyrics by Between The Buried And Me]
[Prospect #1]

A twisted crash... vibrations forming my personal currency.
A lifeline... a sweatbox, the linear mind as one.
Who would have thought?
... SNIPPED ...
