To switch the default active/inactive row highlighting, set these options

set color_win_inactive_sel_bg=black
set color_win_inactive_cur_sel_fg=lightyellow
set color_win_inactive_cur_sel_bg=black
set color_win_sel_bg=yellow
set color_win_sel_fg=black
set color_win_cur_sel_fg=black
set color_win_cur_sel_bg=yellow


I use an i3xrocks blocklet that tracks the currently playing title as well as logging it to a text file.
