Looking up info about a song from iTunes on Google!

A great tip submitted by Oscar Meijer: Looking up info about a song from iTunes on Google! If you are looking for information about a specific song, Googling the name along with the artist is usually the easiest method. It can be done right in iTunes by using a shortcut located in the Services menu. It is "Search with Google". What is really cool is that if you highlight a song, and press "Shift-Command-L", it will open Safari (or your default browser) and search the name, the artist and the album of the selected song in Google. It is much quicker than retyping all that info! Thanks for the great tip Oscar!

"Shift-Command-L" seems to work in all Mac software, not just iTunes. highlight what you want and do "Shift-Command-L"

Just tried this tip in Firefox and it does not work. Same for Camino. It does work in Safari but does not bring the Safari window to the front as I'd expected it to.

Mine also only opens Safari, doesn't bring it to the front, and seems to search for everything about the song: Song Time Artist Album Date Played Play Count

This doesn't yield any results from Google because of this. Great tip but I can't get it to work.
