This is because Darkice is getting its audio from the soundcard 
(presumably) and thus has no idea about which songs are being played and 
therefore cannot pass this information on to Icecast.

How are you playing your music?  Perhaps it's possible for whatever you're 
using to send audio directly to Icecast without needing to use Darkice and 
send title information as well.

If not, there may be other options.
