Have you ever discovered that you’ve been singing one of your favorite songs incorrectly all along? Instead of being embarrassed in front of your friends, it’s easier to use one of the lyrics searching website discussed below and find the actual lyrics of the song.
Google: Quick Results for Popular Songs
Sometimes, all you want are the lyrics of the song, fast. In that case, your best is to search the song name + lyrics (the song lyrics) on Google. If it’s a popular song, Google will likely display the lyrics of the song inside the search results, and you won’t even have to go to another website. It may be a hit or miss for some older or less popular songs, for those, use of the other sites instead.
Genius.com: For the Broadest Selection of Songs
Genius.com is a crowdsourced lyrics search website and a musical publication. It covers new music releases and music related news apart from hosting lyrics. It claims that it has the biggest collection of music lyrics and music knowledge. You can search for lyrics by entering the song name or the artist name in the search field and Genius.com will retrieve relevant results. You can then click on any song to reach the lyrics page, which will contain the lyrics, a song preview (from Apple Music), and additional information about the album and the artist. Popular songs will also have the lyric translations into a few different languages—also contributed by the community.
AZLyrics does one thing and does it well, i.e., find lyrics. It’s one of the simplest websites to find lyrics for a variety of songs which works well on desktop and mobile. You can search for specific lyrics or choose from the ‘What’s Hot?’ section. The lyrics are presented in a non-distracting, simple-to-read manner, and you will also find the link to purchase the song on the same page. AZLytics is free to use and ad-supported, but the ads are minimal and non-intrusive, which makes searching for lyrics a pleasant experience.
Lyrics.com: Lets You Search by the Lyrics Themselves
Lyrics.com is a website that hosts song lyrics, videos, and information about various artists and their albums. You can browse their lyric collection alphabetically or by using their search feature. You can search by albums, artists, or song names, like on most sites, but you can also search by the lyrics of a song. It’s great for when you remember some of the lyrics, but can’t quite place the song or artist. To explore new music, you can also use the new or random option which will show you the newly added song lyrics or lyrics of a random song.
LyricsMode: Helps Understand the Meaning of Lyrics
LyricsMode is another lyric finding website with a collection of 700,000 songs from over 30,000 global artists. Similar to other websites, the lyrics are contributed by the community and even you can contribute some lyrics after creating an account. If you choose, you can have LyricsMode send you updates about your favorite artists over email. On the lyrics front, searching is the primary way to find lyrics of a song; it’s fast and lists artists and music by popularity. To understand the meaning of a song, just highlight a part of the lyrics and click the request option.
Every website probably won’t have all kinds of lyrics, as most of them specialize in some kind of music lyrics. So, we recommend trying out different sites if you don’t find what you’re looking for on one.
