It's likely you get nothing because the MP3 file uses ID3v2 (not v1) tags,
which is in a totally different place in the mP3 file. You can put this
after your call to extract_ID3V1 to verify:

  if the result is false then
    answer "Not in ID3V1 format."
    answer songTitle  -- should give you the title of the song for
  end if
