Actually, song lyrics are available in iTunes but it’s a headache to get them, and they’re not available for every song. Is there an easier way that’s faster than the manual method while the song is playing? Enter the free app Lyrikos.
Free The Lyrics!
The old fashioned way to grab song lyrics was to search the web. That was painful. iTunes itself has song lyrics built in to the Get Info tab for each song.
However, it’s my experience that lyrics are available for songs purchased from iTunes, not ripped from my CD collection.
Worse, to get to the lyrics you have to select the song that’s playing, hit the keyboard combo Command-I to have the Get Info window pop up, then select the Lyrics tab and hope for the best.
Or, just install Lyrikos, it’s free, and it grabs song lyrics from multiple sources, drops them into the Lyrikos window, displays available album art, and even saves the lyrics.
Song lyrics come from a variety of lyric services, including Dark Lyrics, letras.mus.br, MetroLyrics, and Vagalume.
You gotta like the fact that Lyrikos displays the current song’s album art, and saves the lyrics, too.
Not bad for free, right?
