Get your Tags right
All mp3 audio files have to ability to carry in them textual information such as the artist, album etc. This information is provided by ID3 tags. Most portable media players and the iPod can read ID3 data and so can iTunes. Having a track named “unknown.mp3" is of little help in identifying the song. Having album art and properly included ID3 tags can help you identify and sort music easily. That said, if you’ve been in the habit of collecting music for some time and didn’t pay much attention to the tags, then you probably have hundreds or even thousands of such improperly tagged tracks. Manually adding this information would be a time consuming and painful process in itself, so applications like TuneUp, MusicBrainz, etc., will help you out here.
If you are looking to make small changes here and there in the ID3 tags then the song info window is the place where you can edit song information.
The song or track information window will allow you to edit the name of artist, album name, year, genre, etc. By providing these tags to your music you can later sort or organize music easily, allowing you to easily search and locate a specific track, album or artist. To edit a particular tag, let's say Artist; just click on the particular field and delete or modify the existing entry by typing in the required information. You can enter year information, album art, composer and even comments to a track. Once these tags have been added it's easy to look them up on your iPod.
As you can see, now you can sort the tracks on your iPod by Album,artist, composer, etc. which will allow you to quickly locate a particular song that you might be dying to listen to. This will also save you time and the energy spent looking up a song on your iPod.
