Manually setting color

I have just analyzed by entire library of 10,000 songs and a significant number were not analyzed due to DRM protection. Three questions:

  1. How can you manually add a color to a song file. It appears that this option is grayed out on the info tab for the DRM protected song.

  2. Is there an online library where color and BPM can be referenced?

  3. Is there a legend for the various colors that are applied to songs?

    1. You can't (and it wouldn't necessarily make sense, since the color may change over time as your collection is changing)
    2. I'm not sure what exactly you mean with "referenced". Can you please elaborate?
    3. Colors are the result of a frequency analysis of a song projected into the color space specifically for your personal collection. That makes a legend impossible. However, sorting by color will give you an impression, what kind of songs in your collection are e.g. red.

    Hope this helps,
