I have a boatload of songs (over 100) that could not be identified, Here's a log with some examples. Anything I'm doing wrong?

    these kind of messages stem from the Last.fm task. They basically mean that either Last.fm does not have any tags for the particular song or that the song could not be found on Last.fm. Note that the tags in question are not title, album, etc. but free form tags like you can find them on the Last.fm website.

    To increase your chances of beaTunes finding tags on Last.fm for you, make sure you have correct album and artist tags set, as those two are used in the lookup.

    Hope this helps,
