I thought I had read once that itunes had a way of selecting songs from your library that meet or exceed a chosen tempo.  This would be really handy for choosing songs to jog by.  Anybody heard of that?

I've continued to do a some research and it turns out there is a beats-per-minute field in the info tab for each song, but it is not normally populated.  I guess one has to obtain an app to do that.  If that field were populated, than I could sort songs on it and find the best temp songs for running.

 

I found a web page that references a couple of programs that will analyze the bpm of songs.  Unfortunately, the one that is more accurate requires navigating to each album folder one at a time.  That would make for an incredibly laborious task.  Here's the link: http://www.nateshiva...ng-my-playlist/
