That won't work if the filenames contain spaces (since the shell will
split ls's output on spaces), and it's needlessly inefficient. It's
better to say:

  for i in *.mp3; do

or if you really do want to use the output of a command, then:

  find . -name '*.mp3' | while read i; do

(Not supporting spaces in filenames in the modern world is silly --
particularly for music files! Newlines I'm less concerned about...)
