There’s got to be a way in LaunchBar to see the currently playing song in iTunes right? Yup, choose iTunes and right arrow. Love LaunchBar.

Mistyping commonly used @launchbar shortcuts can lead to interesting results. I’m listening to George Strait instead of launching Coda…

Buying an upgrade to LaunchBar 5. My second purchased upgrade (3 -> 4, 4 -> 5)… money very well spent.
