This is a mix of two of the other "current iTunes song" geeklets on this site, however, neither of them were perfect. One worked rather well but ALWAYS kept iTunes open, and the other didn't work.

This geeklet prints like so:

Posters - Jack Johnson (Brushfire Fairytales) | paused at 17%

Anyways, download both files and put the script file in the following location:

~/Documents/Scripts/CurrentSong.scpt

Otherwise you'll just have to change the currentsong.glet command to point to another location - either way works.

Additions I have made are: If iTunes is closed, geeklet says it's closed. If iTunes is paused, geeklet says it's paused. Enjoy.

Was the bet until 2 days ago... When iTunes got updated to 9.2.. now it just says iTunes and thats it.

Please fix it as soon as you can. Really great script.

I'll try to think of checking back here, but if you can hit me up on my twitter, that would be perfect.

I have modified the CurrentSong.scpt so that it doesn't continuously write errors to the console when iTunes is stopped because trackname and other variables are not defined. I have also added a feature that reports that iTunes is stopped when it is running but nothing is playing. You can grab it here:
