All of a sudden my iMac has started showing a popup notification in the middle of the screen every time a song changes. I'm not sure what's changed. But I don't want them.

iTunes popup

I checked iTunes's preferences and didn't see anything, though admittedly I often overlook things. I thought maybe it was Growl which I installed years ago, but it doesn't look like it as it wasn't running and wasn't configured for iTunes notifications anyways.

Where are these popup notifications coming from, and how can I get rid of them?

Is that QuickSilver perhaps? – slhck Nov 23 '12 at 17:42

It was QuickSilver. Going to its preferences panel and unchecking "Display Track Notifications" got rid of the popups.

QuickSilver preferences

Thanks @slhck!

With all the updates, it can now be found within iTunes, under Preferences (which is listed under "File") and simply unchecked.
