iTunes and Global HotKeys?

Howdy,

Back in July, I bought my first new Mac. I love my iBook, it absolutely rocks! There is one (and only one) feature that I miss from Windows. In Winamp (5.0) there is a setting for "Global HotKeys". Simply put, when listening to Winamp, all I had to do was press Ctrl-Right Arrow to skip to another song. I stayed in my application and kept on working.

I haven't found anything similar to this for iTunes. Am I missing something?

Cheers,

The Czar

Spark

Try an app named Spark, it's worked very well for me.

Sizzling Keys

I use sizzling keys for iTunes, easy to remember key combinations and it pops up a little thingy to tell you what the song is...
