Changing the title of an mp3 (not the filename!)

Quite a few of the mp3s I download have a very long number in the "title" line of info display. This is not the filename. This number shows up as the name of the song in the car, and I'd like to change it so what shows up is something like "Deborah's Theme" rather than "568016860634576". Is there a way to edit the title (not the filename!) of an mp3?

    the information you are refering to are the "ID3 tags" which exists inside the MP3 file.
    PathFinder shows this info, but it does not edit them.

    You need any free app capable to edit ID3 tags of MP3 files.
