i have organized my music in a weird fashion and now i am getting its aftereffects.

There are N number of directories, each having variable number of songs. Each and every song is a MP3. No song is having its ALBUM TAG set.
Each directory is a name of a particular movie. Each song in that directory has parent movie's song(s).

Change ALBUM attribute [or mp3 tag] of each and every song to its parent directory name. eg. If song1.mp3 is in Titanic, then song1.mp3's Album should be changed to Titanic.

It is required to create a Script that can sit in a "root" folder, which has all Parent Movie directories and who in turn have respective songs.

Check out: http://id3lib.sourceforge.net/

You can use the library to code somethin to edit mp3 header information, or just grab one of the progs linked on the page and use it.

Audio Tag Tool will let you change id3 tags for batches based on file name and/or structure

sudo apt-get install tagtool
