    When I have a playlist playing and have a window in front of iTunes, is there a way for when I go to the next song to have it show what song is on without opening the itunes window? Like a popup or something that comes up for the first few seconds the next song comes on?

    not that i know of, do you have spaces set up and utilize it? i have mine set up like this
    1 2
    3 4
    5 6

    where:
    1 = safari and firefox windows
    2 = itunes
    3 = ichat
    4 = icalender
    5 = word, excel, powerpoint
    6 = other various applications i would not normally use on a daily basis

    so when i have music playing and not sure of which song it is (sometimes i don't really care or already know) i just hit command + an arrow key to move screens in whatever direction i want. it is very easy to do and could solve your problem of clutter without having to click on different windows.

    I use Synergy. It pops a nice floating window when they next song comes on, shows the album art and stuff too. Also gives you control of play and forward and back from the menu bar.

    Growltunes works pretty well for me, really simple, nothing invasive.
