Displaying the name of song currently playing on an LCD screen

Hello , I was just thinking of making a small project in which I display the name of the song that is currently playing on my media player ,on an LCD screen. I know the hardware connections of the LCD. But I'm clueless on how to collect data about the song. Also is there any media player that is better to use for this. Please help. :)

I wrote this, it has the feature you want

It uses an ATMega644P, so if you are smart, you can easily adapt the concept and code
