Google adds song lyrics to search results

At long last, Google has added song lyrics to search results, meaning you won’t have to click through to another site to fill in the blanks or correct a misheard lyric.

Not only will this benefit those searching for lyrics, but artists are to profit too. According to Billboard, the feature is part of a multi-year licensing deal with LyricFind and will provide musicians and publishers with a new source of income.

This new feature is rolling out to users in the US first, but the deal covers international licensing too, so it may be only a matter of time before it’s available to everyone.
