The website eLyrics is a great site for those of you trying to find song lyrics that are fresh and relevant in today’s music world. On the homepage you’ll find quickly accessible to links to all of the latest songs by the top-rated artists as well as a selection of the top 25 songs on the site.

Granted, there is a section for each set of lyrics in which users can submit corrections and even translations (consider “Gangnam Style” Annoy Everybody With Infinite Gangnam Style I'm thankful that not everybody in the world likes the same things.

A-Z Lyrics has a less-than-stellar design, but it’s definitely the content that matters. The site offers lyrics much like any of the other sites you see here, but it also has a prominent feature which allows users to request lyrics if they aren’t already available. It would likely be a rare event for this to happen, but the site claims to have a 90% successful rate (granted, I’m not sure which scientific steps were taken to prove this).


Besides that, there are areas for watching music videos and checking out the latest artist Killing the Man: Making A Living As an Artist Online [Feature] Can you really "kill the man" and make a living on the Internet as a creative professional?

Unlike the other sites found here, SongMeanings is a sited devoted to understanding the foundations of our favorite catchy tunes. Unfortunately, the site doesn’t showcase the actual meanings as stated by the songwriters, but it does utilize a commenting-like system for users to debate the possibilities. That said, I can’t vouch for the meanings behind every song, but I can say that most users have fairly solid points.

In addition to that, you’ll see proper lyrics for each and every song. As a note, you will find many songs without the discussions behind meanings. Although unfortunate, the site does still serve its purpose for finding lyrics.

Have you ever known only part of a song, but you couldn’t remember the the rest of the lyrics or the title? FindMeATune will help you with just that! Simply search for a few lyrics, and the website will help you with the rest of your needs. After searching, you’ll be presented with several possible matches (with hopefully one being right).

Additionally, you’ll be able to pick through a selection of Amazon MP3s by the most likely artist if you want to buy the song.


That’s all for song lyrics, folks! Perhaps you’ll be able to finally get rid of that song that’s in your head now that you know the correct lyrics. (Eh… maybe not.)

    Hey guys, I watched an episode of a show called Teen Titans Go! So this episode is called The Hive five, and during the end I noticed an EXTREMELY catchy pop song, this is the link to the video. Is this an actual song? If so, please tell me!

    This: You hum part of the song but simply don't know the title or even the next note. It nags on you all day long. There are several sites like TrackID that I used to use, but I've already forgotten the names.
