Where can I get song lyrics online?

By: Syd Johnson

If you are downloading music online, eventually you’ll want some song l yrics to go with the mp3 files. It is very easy to find song lyrics online, but very difficult to get them integrated into your mp3 player software.

Various copyright issues have forced many mp3 downloading services and mp3 player companies to ignore the increasing demand for integrated song lyrics online and offline.

To solve this problem, there has been a growing list of shareware developers who are creating plugins for the most popular mp3 player platforms that will allow users to import, save, organize and store song lyrics for most commercial music files on the web.

The plugins are pretty easy to use and some like the lyric tracker plugin for iTunes are used by music lovers to create, and share the song lyrics on the most popular music software systems online.

So how are the song lyrics getting into the system?

Well, these applications are

not merely reading the lyrics and scrolling them across the screen. Instead, the programs are designed to identify the song and title from an mp3 file and then find the lyrics on any one of the major lyrics search engines. It literally goes out, finds the song lyrics, and imports it into your mp3 player.

What happens after that?

It depends on the plugin and it depends on the mp3 player. Sometimes you can tag the lyrics and keep it organized so that it is always displayed when you play your tune. Other times, the lyrics disappear once the song is over and you have to start all over again. Another variable is the ability to print out the lyrics for your personal use.

This also depends on the type of mp3 player that you are using the type of plugin whether it’s freeware or a professional application.

In either case, the software should identity the source of the imported lyrics and you can go to the site and get a copy for yourself.
