Alright, there’s a bit of hyperbole in there. I still had to try the app and then figure out what angle to approach in the review. For Singer Song Reader the best I can come up with is this: if you like song lyrics in iTunes, get it.
Butchered Lyrics No More
As you might guess, I have a problem with song lyrics. Reading the lyric is much different than singing along to the song.
Hence, the need to get song lyrics into iTunes. I don’t know why Apple doesn’t have lyrics for every song ever sung, but Singer Song Reader can help.
For example, I’m a big Elton John fan, and was surprised to learn it’s ‘Hold me closer, tiny dancer‘ instead of the more popular ‘Hold me closer, Tony Danza.’ I thought he was kind of gay.
From the Beatles I had to learn that ‘The girl with kaleidoscope eyes‘ wasn’t really ‘The girl with colitis goes by.’
Seriously. Is there anyone who didn’t think Madonna’s lyric was ‘Like a virgin, touched for the thirty-first time‘ was really ‘Like a virgin, touched for the very first time?‘ Come on. I mean it’s Madonna.
Singer Song Reader searches over a dozen online sites to come up with the lyrics for your songs, but does even more.
You’ll need to launch iTunes and Singer Song Reader to get started. Select a song on iTunes. From then on, Singer Song Reader digs around the internet to find lyrics.
If the song in iTunes has lyrics already, Singer Song Reader will display those (the key is how much information is embedded into the song).
There’s no better way to re-learn the song lyrics you’ve butchered for a decade or two or three than this free and useful add on to iTunes.
