Google Starts Showing Song Lyrics In Search Results – Not As Good As It Sounds

| 0 comments

I was happy to see TechCrunch’s headline this morning: Google Adds Song Lyrics To Top Of Search Results, Points Searchers To Google Play.

Great, I thought, it would be nice to be able to avoid all those ad-ridden online lyric sites.

But the article underneath the headline pointed out a number of shortcomings to the service (you type in the name of the song plus the word “lyrics”), including the fact that many songs aren’t included (it didn’t show “The Bowling Song,” “Take Me Out To The Ballgame,” or “We Shall Overcome” when I tried it, though it did come up with “Little Boxes.”

Nevertheless, I’ll add this info to The Best Places To Find Lyrics On The Web, which I probably have to update.
