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.

At least you tried.

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. ;)

Well, I guess my mind's made up.

Haha. If only the flight wasn't so bloody expensive.

Do I have to separate you two??

 

No. The Pacific Ocean has already done that.

 

 

As well as your inability to just step to me. I'm here. Just waiting.

    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.
