I haven’t tried this app because the comment below mine states that it doesn’t paste lyrics into iTunes, which makes it pointless for me. If that’s no longer true, I’d like to know so I can give it a try.

In any case, thanks to the dev for making it free.

This thing is sweet. Pay no attention to the assholes, dude. It's very fine work.

I sorta wish it could paste lyrics automatically, though.

Tried to give it a 5 but could not get past 4.5 overall.

Stay away from this app. It just keeps fetchig the wrong lyrics no matter the combination between song name - album, etc. Just works 1% and it's really, really frustrating! And the "support" its just a joke!

What a joke!
I just downloaded installed and then updated to the new version before I started to use it.
Out of the first ten songs here are the results.
1/ Pink - I'ts All Your fault - No lyrics found
2/ Beyonce - All the single ladies - Totally wrong lyrics for another song
3/ Pink - Missundaztood - No lyrics Found
4/ Jet - Are you gonna be my girl - Found and correct YAY
5/ Cristina Aguilera - Not myself tonight - No lyrics found
6/ Cristina Aguilera - Candyman - Lyrics found and correct YAY
7/ Darryl Braithwaite - The horses - No Lyrics Found
8/ Shakira - Suerte (Whenever Wherever Spanish Version) - Wrong language. This song is in spanish with spanish title but gives english lyrics.
9/ Katy Perry - I kissed a girl - Lyrics found and correct YAY
10 / Pink - U & UR Hand - Wrong Lyrics

next ten no better.
INXS - What you need - gave me lyrics for One of my kind instead.
Nora Jones songs don't exist
etc etc

really bad plugin that is a waste of time.

Say, have you checked that
1. all the song title and artist name are CORRECT? No misspelled word whatsoever. e.g See No 2, the correct song name is SINGLE LADIES, I have this song and I get the correct lyrics.
2. Use the next lyrics button to get more lyrics?

If you did these, you will see that you would have gotten most of the lyrics here.I tried and I found most of the lyrics here, and with a bit of help from google, I got all of them. You can't expect to get correct lyrics if you don't even have the correct song name, right? Thanks.


wow. what a smartass developer.
so you picked ONE mistake i made.

the comment you make regarding.. with a little help from google.. is pointless.
I don't need an app to be able to google song lyrics. I can do that for myself. in fact it is better doing that as your app is so restricted.

Take the feedback on board. you make an app that doesn't do what it says it is going to do, then you make as asshole out of yourself with your smartass reply.
Even MORE of a reason to stay away from this app.


"ONE mistake" you say? Just ONE? REALLY?!
uh, for starters:
P!nk - The "i" is actually an exclamation point.
Christina Aguilera - According to miss Aguilera's official site there is an "h" in her first name.
Daryl Braithwaite - Only one "r" in Daryl.

Makes me wonder:
1. How are you obtaining your music? If through iTunes or any legit download service the files should be tagged properly, one would think or at the very least the artists' names should be right. If importing yourself through iTunes they should be tagged properly as well.
2. Why do you expect a lyrics fetching tool to fetch correct lyrics for incorrectly tagged songs?

So, who's the a**hole here?

Finally one that works and doesn't cause itunes problems when quitting.
(The only reason I didn't give it 5/5 is because I missed the star when I clicked and it wont let me edit it.) Now I just need to figure out how to donate some money to the developers of this.

TuneLyrics comes closest to the legendary iClip Lyrics in terms of its simple, intuitive interface - the kind of software that makes finding lyrics very fast and actually quite enjoyable. You may get a few false positives with deliberately obscure songs; however, with the vast majority of tunes, it's easy to search out and acquire lyrics. Most of the time, an album will take no more than a few seconds. You may find GetLyrical more accurate, but TuneLyrics is unbeatable for speed and ease of use.

Wrong lyrics for Hollow Man, R.E.M. This application needs to be improved.

Finally a lyrics searcher that works for me! (tried "Lyrics" and "Gimmesometune" with absolutely no result)
And it works even for not so well known artists, so great!
(it stuck on Geoffrey Oryema and Flexa Lyndo, nobody's perfect... ;-)but with the google search option, it does the search for you anyway)

But, what's the use when you CAN look for lyrics in a web browser?

Which lyrics provider is used?

Just installed and seems to work fine, except that the lyrics are incomplete - get a few lines and then [...] such as

Games, changes and fears
When will they go from here
When will they stop
I believe that faith
Has brought us here
And we should be together babe
But we're not

I play it off but I'm dreaming of you
I keep my cool but I'm fe[...]

any ideas?
