iTunes Lyrics importer 1.1
“Automatically add lyrics to your iTunes library”
There’s nothing better than having the lyrics to your favourite songs with you on iTunes. Unfortunately, iTunes doesn’t include a lyrics retrieval tool but you can get round it by adding this program.
iTunes Lyrics importer or “iLyrics” automatically searches the net when you click “Get Lyrics” and downloads the song lyrics based on their titles. It has a huge databank to choose from thanks to the Lyricswiki project which allows users to upload the lyrics of their favourite songs. Because of this, you’re more likely to fine the lyrics of obscure songs rather than other lyrics sites which concentrate more on mainstream offerings.
Normally, iLyrics will give you a direct hit and provide you with exactly the song you were looking for. However, occasionally it will confuse the song with another one but you only have two modes “Update automatically” or “Manual Mode”. If you select the former and it finds the wrong lyrics, note that you’ll lose the old lyrics and they will be replaced by lyrics that may be wrong. If your initial experiments prove to be a bit dodgy, then I’d recommend using the latter mode which gives you control over whether to definitely replace the lyrics or not.
An excellent addition to iTunes which has a huge resource of lyrics to draw from although be careful which mode you use.
