Many Mac apps show what’s currently playing in your Music — often by rendering semi-transparent widgets over what you do. Those widgets distract you from work and never answer the question “What’s playing?” the moment you have it.

Emcee humbly shows the song in the menu bar.

The song name does not scroll, it stands still.

Has some Bugs

For the most part it works but they're moments when it doesn't show up when I'm on a web broswer.

Nice, but

This is what I was looking for, but for some reason, the song text in the menu bar is a little blurry... fix that, and add the ability to Love/Dislike a song, and it's a 5-star program
