  • Description: A little perl script which fetches lyrics of currently playing song from, adds it to id3tag and displays on stdout.


cur=`mpc|head -n 2|tail -n 1|sed -e 's/.*#\([0-9]*\).*/\1/'`
while [ 1 ];do
   sleep 1;
   cur=`mpc|head -n 2|tail -n 1|sed -e 's/.*#\([0-9]*\).*/\1/'`
   if [ $cur != $prev ];then

Note by author:

This script is a bit old and does not use the API that leoslyrics now provide. If anyone's up to the task to update the script please feel free to do so. I might update it when/if I've got time for it some day, but don't count on that.
