I have my songs in folders ie album folders in the music folder eg Akhon - Trouble, properties click on the folder and select the mp3tag option (if you don't have this option present, re-install and chose the option at install). mp3tag will open with all the files in the folder listed.
Highlight all the tracks on the right of the screen (select 1 track then CTRL-A). Then select the Tag Sources option from the top menu to the top left of the screen and choose a site to tag them from (you can get more src files from the mp3tag site to give you more sites to tag from). Mp3tag will go away and search for the album details, it normally brings back a list. Select from the list and it will automatically bring back all matching details. You should then have all the tracks tagged in that folder.
Once you get used to it it doesn't take long at all. I tagged 680 albums using it!!
If you don't have tracks in folders and have them all jumbled up then you could try using the freedb tag source which has an option to tag from selected tracks. If you have just one folder right click on that and select mp3 then just highlight the track you want to tag using freedb.
