Are you looking at a new music player? Then look this way:
Songbird is a really great alternative to Windows Media Player, and, if they get iPod support, iTunes. Follow the steps below to set it up:

Step 1

Download Songbird from http://www.getsongbird.com and click the Download button. That should then automatically determine that you are using Windows, and will download the program. Save it to somewhere you’ll remember, and, when downloaded, launch it.

Step 2

You may get an error message saying it’s unsupported on this version of Windows, but just go ahead and click OK. Then, click Next twice, then Install. When installed, click Finish.

Step 3

You should then get a Setup Wizard, which you need to go through to get started. It really doesn’t matter what options you pick – it’s all down to what you want. I’d suggest you install the Lyrics & Gracenote add-ins though.

Step 4

Once through that, it will then scan through your Music and add your library. We’re almost there!

Play a song, any random song. If you installed the Lyrics add-on, you should see the Lyrics come up on the right-hand side. How cool!
