“Purple Rain” Booster: Lowers iTunes Ranking By One Star For Every Other Album
I saw a tweet that made me laugh:
“I’ve run out of stars to rate “Purple Rain” in iTunes. Need to write an applescript that will lower all other albums by one star.”
I couldn’t agree more with @sugarfreejones, so here’s that script! It will lower every non-”Purple Rain” album in your current view/window/playlist by one star!
And for those with different tastes, just type in the name of your favorite album in its place. (sigh)
set currentList to view of front window
set rating_change to 20
repeat with curTrack in (get every track of currentList)
if rating of curTrack is greater than rating_change then
if album of curTrack does not contain "Purple Rain" then
set rating of curTrack to (rating of curTrack) - rating_change
