Say I wanted to fill the genre tags of my whole mp3 library automatically.
Say I trusted the last.fm
community enough to use the three most used tags for a certain song/album listed there (for example: New Order's Ceremony
would get "80s" "new wave" and "post-punk").
Say I wanted to do this automatically.
Say I had a Mac.
How would I go about this?

I hate that none of the software I know adds genre tags automatically. And yeah, I know that people think differently about different genres, but I'm willing to overlook that and just go for the most common genre "opinion" for now. This seems like a nice solution - I know it would go wrong on occasions, but it seems quite accurate overall.
I know /some/ Ruby. I'm not really proficient at it, but I could learn. Or can you think of a better way?
