Yes, wow, a whole $5 or less!
Then try YouControl, from:
You Control: Tunes is a free utility that gives you complete control over iTunes from the Mac OS X menu bar. You don't have to stop whatever it is you may be doing, switch to iTunes, take care of business and then go back to your original app. You can now simply pull down your very own custom menu that gives you access to the iTunes controls (Next, Previous, Volume, Play/Pause, Stop) as well as displaying the current track, artist and album. You can also navigate your entire iTunes music library from this menu as well so you never leave your current application.
I also use You Control, but I only use it for quick access to ratings. It has some cool feaures though. For quick track control, I use what I think is the single best 3rd party mini application ever written.
Hold a hotkey to bring up a floating control window. Use arrow keys to skip, ffwd, rew or change volume, and return key to pause. Then release the hotkey and the window fades away.
It hasn't been updated in a while, but everything still works except for the total track length display. The day this application dies, I will cry. I've never found another app that does the same thing.
Edit: GimmeSomeTune looks like it may have some of that same functionality. I'm going to check that out when I get home. Thanks for the heads up!
