Since it's mp3, it's not included in Fedora Core.  Thus someone else
has to compile it and make an rpm package.  Livna stopped supporting
x86_64 a little while back, it was a sad day :(.

I recommend grabbing the src.rpm from and rebuilding it. 
It's not that hard and is a great learning experience if you've never
done it before.  You should be able to download the package and then
just run:
rpmbuild --rebuild --target=x86_64 k3b-mp3-*src.rpm
If (when) it complains about dependecies, note what it wants and use
yum to install the needed -devel packages.  It worked just fine for
me.  You may need to be root to run the above command, or you can
create your own rpm build root by adding a .rpmmacros file in you home
directory with something like this in it:
%_topdir                %(echo $HOME)/redhat
For this, you will need to have a directory "redhat" off of your home
directory with the same sub-folders as /usr/src/redhat/  Another
.rpmmacros line I find useful for x86_64 is:
%_query_all_fmt %%{name}-%%{version}-%%{release}.%%{arch}
This adds the arch of the rpm to the name that rpm -q reports since
you can install 32- and 64-bit packages.

Oh, come on.  They aren't *that* bad : ).  Great quote though.
