Songs Cleanup is a free program for Microsoft Windows devices to clean up tags used by songs of the iTunes music library.

Apple iTunes is one of the most popular media managers and stores, which can largely be attributed to the success of the iPod and iPhone product line. We have covered iTunes in the past, explained for example how to Create A Free US iTunes Account or mentioned the program iTunes music library cleanup for it.

Songs Cleanup is another free software program to cleanup the song tags of iTunes libraries.

It does require an installation of Apple's iTunes software which is the only requirement. The main interface is divided into a library selector that provides access to all playlists that are currently configured on iTunes on the computer system. A click on the Clean button initiates the scan of the songs that are listed in the library.

Users who want more control can access several configuration settings before. These define the value that null fields will be replaced with, and which also allow the selection and deselection of several cleaning filters.

The application is definitely a work in progress and needs some additional information to guide the user and explain what it is doing.

The homepage of the software developer lists several of the features and plans for future versions. The download on that page is currently broken but will hopefully be fixed by the developer soon. Here is the direct link to the page containing the download.

Update: The developer homepage is no longer available, and there is no trace of the program on the Internet. What you can try instead is iTunes Cleanup which can delete duplicate songs, missing songs that are still listed in playlists and more. The program is a free download for the Microsoft windows operating system.

Here is a video that demonstrates the program's functionality.

Update: The program is now known as CopyTrans TuneTastic. It is currently available as a free beta version which you can download from the developers website.

Update 2: CopyTrans ended support for TuneTastic back in 2015. We have uploaded the last version of the program to our own server. Please note that we don't support the application in any way, and that it may not work with newer versions of iTunes.

You can download CopyTrans TuneTastic with a click on the following link: CopyTrans TuneTastic

    The warning message about AAC streams when you load streams is because you don’t have the free Orban AAC/aacPlus Player Plugin installed.

      Justin, thanks for the information.

    does this support AAC ? or only mp3 streaming

      I’d say it supports all pls streams but I have not tried that so cannot verify it 100%.

    Thank you Martin for a most informative and viable solution (it allowed me to play streams from a Netherland internet radio station in my WMP)! Continued success to you!

    You must convert file.pls to file.m3u
    because file.pls open with winamp and file.m3u open with wmp.

    Hey, even i can do it, i stumbled through it and it works great! The only instruction advice i will add as i had to figure this out, when the wmp box opens that says save or open the bar on right says wmp click that drop down and select “open pls in wmp” once you do that it will work . Took me quite some time to discover that as i am no computer expert by any means. Having said that, previously i had downloaded codec packages and something about aac. None did any good. This rocks, i listen to a lot of internet radio and a number of them have dropped flash player and getting wmp to work had been a nightmare. So many thanks for this great solution to another problem that Micro-Hell will not even address. Peace- Out

    openplsinwmp came in a zip file. I unpacked it, and didn’t find anything that looks like an executable, and even the files in the “doc” folder were in a format windows didn’t recognize. I’m not stupid. you said it would open effortlessly. It didn’t. This a rabbit hole I don’t want to go down.
