iTunes Lyrics Widget for Yosemite's Today View

This widget for OS X 10.10 Yosemite's Today View shows the lyrics of songs playing in iTunes, if there are lyrics embedded into the track.



  1. Download the archive and unpack it
  2. Move the application to your preferred place, like /Applications/
  3. Right-click the application and select run from the context menu, click ok—the app will run in background without an icon or window
  4. Open the Notification Center, on the bottom select Edit and add the widget from the list on the right

Version history:

  • It works.
  • Switched from shared data storage to directly sending notifications between application and widget—live updating!
  • Some clean up
  • Works on OS X 10.11 El Capitan
  • Works on OS X 10.11 High Sierra

Ideas for later

  • Add option to add/edit lyrics directly in the widget
  • Small play/pause/prev/next buttons?
