Lyrics

Recommended Posts

I don't know if this has been discussed before. A quick search tells me it has not, but, well, it was a quick search.

 

So this might get shot down quicker than it takes me to type this up, but what would you (Dan, primarily; moderators, secondarily; and the rest, lastly and certainly least-ly) say about adding a lyrics feature on the main site? I was thinking having a pop-up window, when you click on a song title, with the lyrics, much like when you click to "See All Ratings" or the 'lists.' There are many times I've searched for lyrics for obscure artists on those pages, and found nothing. Most of us have access to those albums and liner notes.

 

I understand it would be a big undertaking, and some songs, likely, won't have printed lyrics, but I believe it would be a great additional feature that could draw more new visitors to the site, and even the forums. We would submit lyrics in the same way we submit other artist and album information.

 

This is something I've thought about for a few years, but never mentioned, because I'm expecting it to be rejected. But, what the hell. Might as well get some closure, so-to-speak.

It's not a bad idea but, (1) there are plenty of lyric websites alrady out there and (2) do you have any idea how much labor would be involved in inputting the lyrics?... that would be in addition to coming up with a suitable mechanism for storing, accessing, and searching the lyrics.

 

Most importantly, posting an artist's lyrics involves far more copyright entanglements than I'm willing to get into. It's akin to posting music samples from musicians, a road I've already gone down with ASCAP and BMI, which is why I only post samples on the main site from bands and labels that submit material directly.

 

In a word: nope.

 

Sorry.

Yeah, this is what I feared. But a lot of sites are user submitted and edited, so it had me wondering what the law actually states.

 

Oh, well.

It is a good idea. But can you imagine trying to transcribe the lyrics from some of those wonderfully gifted singers that sound like they are singing with a mouthful of dicks? :lol:

Like X-tasy? Is that what it was called? The female vocal fronted band from this year that is supposedly sung in English, but I'm 99% sure it's actually Portugese.

 

Like Dan said before the copyright thing, though... can you image the labor and effort that would go into something like this? I wouldn't wish it on Karpet Face... uh, I mean my worst enemy. ;)
