I just installed the LogJam client for updating my LiveJournal.

The client can automatically detect the music your're listening to. However this only works out-of-the-box if your're using XMMS or RhythmBox.

I'm using Music Playing Deamon, and created the following little script (called it songname) which will do as the second comment line says:

#!/bin/bash 
# Prints out currently playing artist/songname or [none]

mpc | ( 
    read s; read t; # read first two lines: song info and status
    if [[ "${t:0:9}" == "[playing]" ]]; then 
        echo $s; 
    else 
        echo "[none]"
    fi
)

?
