    - Check out an old program like whistle, it hasn't been updated in years but it's in AUR, plenty of perl stuff involved, anyway here the repo for other distros just in case someone would be willing to look into it and see if it's easy to work on it:, aside from the usual song info, you'll get the equalizer in text format and even the song lyrics in one of the left pane (and I guess it wouldn't be that hard to modify it so that, instead of the lyrics, you'll get the cover image in that very pane, maybe after having converted it to plain text when you are not in a graphical environment, I don't see the point, but hey, you asked because you were bored ;-)
