This was such a great program! I'm so sorry to see it go. Get Lyrical seems to be the best replacement I've found so far.

I've been using this app for a long time now - in fact I relied heavily on it as others similar apps seem to fall short of delivering decent results (like the hated insertion of a licensing message instead of the lyrics!). Anyway, as most of you will discover this app is now bust, broke, dead, etc.... since updating to Lion that is! I've tried to get to the developers website and no joy.... if anyone knows how to get hold of him, just to see if a fix is possible, then I'd be really pleased to hear about it. Thanks.

I've been using this fantasitic app for years but I just updated to 10.7 Lion last week and now the app is broken. Probably something with the text rendering because it launches and just doesn't display any text.

so pity that the application is discontinued due to some stupid lyrics right shouters :-(
But to me, it is still the best ever and no one can even compared to it. It is very easy to use and i can even search chinese song lyrics....by the way, the lyrics searched by iclip is very accurate and i even do not need to edit it.
I hope one day the developer can come back and take a new version....
anyway, i am still using the old version i bought last year....it works very well on SN 10.6...

By far, the easiest, most intuitive application to merge iTunes and lyrics - and also the most accurate. Of course, iClip Lyrics is no longer being supported (most likely, the problem was flak from short-sighted lyrics rights advocates); however, people who enjoy music are the ones who fell victim. GetLyrical is the only application that's close in terms of accuracy - but I'd still pay extra to get iClip Lyrics back.

Always looking for a better, faster, more accurate way to get lyrics into my iTunes music library, I said, "what the heck," I'll give this a try. Used for an hour and bought it.

This is the most accurate, versatile lyric finder I've ever used, and the interface is brilliant. When it doesn't automatically find and put lyrics in your song, which hasn't been often except for really obscure songs I own, iClip Lyrics then has a built-in web browser that automatically finds all the lyric search engines out there, and lets you click and choose. Now, instead of having to go to my browser to do my own search, the search is integrated right into the iClip. And when you do find it via your own search (powered by Google, with customizable settings in iClip) you just highlight them in iClip's browser page and it instantly copies and inserts your selection right into the song. Brilliant! This is the lyric search software I've been looking for. Highly recommended!

Steven, I have to agree with you. The most accurate ITunes lyric finder on the market.

What a shame that the developer was forced to discontinue this fantastic program!

I'm assuming this is because of the typical BS from records companies about copyright lyric issues. If it is, it amazes me that these people can be so stupid as not to realize that when people want lyrics to songs they have, it's only to increase their enjoyment of the music they own, not to rip someone off or somehow take money away from Big Music.

It seems so counterproductive and ignorant to go after developers like those of iClip Lyrics, who are providing a service that enables people to enjoy the music they own more fully. WTF! I'm sure Big Music has its side on this issue, but they are only increase the hostility of the public toward them when they do lame things like this.

Again, so Sorry to see iClip cease; I'm going to make sure I get as many copies of it out to friends a possible, since the last supported version works great.

So sad; so stupid!

PS - BOBZUZUS - So true, and it makes the loss of support for the program even more of a bummer!

Since pearLyrics stopped working I couldn't find a good replacement.

Finally tried iClip Lyrics and... it's exactly what I've been looking for (well... almost ;-)
Purchased it right away! :-)

Grazie, Luigi!


(re that "almost": what I deeply loved in pearLyrics was the widget always running in background. I even forgot it was there silently doing it's job :-)

It works, it actually works. Launch the app, start playing songs in iTunes, and magically the lyrics will appear in the song. No errors, no user input, no problems.

After trying widget after widget after widget, I have to admit I'm a bit stunned. It can't be this simple can it? I don't have to look them up? I don't have to tell it to copy the lyrics to iTunes? No "lyrics not found" messages?

I'm amazed it took this long for someone to make a lyric tool for iTunes that actually works, but hats off to you for finally getting it right. Great job!

IClip Lyrics has been a bit of a godsend. It costs money, but that's because it does what it says it does. It grabs lyrics off of the lyricwiki and sticks them in the file. This is great because it seems to work with a great deal of my music. I only had one problem after I updated to 10.6, which I assume was fixed with the latest upgrade. It wouldn't clip the lyrics if I had to use the find lyrics feature.

Also I like that if it can't find the lyrics, with the click of a button you can look up the lyrics in google.

One small feature request: if you could specify for it not to overwrite lyrics already there and automatically grab only lyric entries that are blank I could just have it run through my entire library once and for all, but as it is I've spent a lot of time compiling lyrics, and I'm afraid if I apply this program already set lyrics it might over write them.

Another feature I love is being able to process an entire playlist in one go.

All is all it was well worth the cash I paid for it considering how much time it's saved me and how much I love having the lyrics in the song files to look up.

Dear user,

thank you for your review!

About your feature request: when you launch a search for a full playlist, iClip Lyrics, by default, don't overwrite your lyrics! If you want to overwrite them, you can customize this option from the "General" preferences pane!

For any question or trouble, please, contact us.

Kind regards,

You have a couple of grammatical mistakes in the description of your program. I suppose it isn't important, but it does impact the professional presentation of your product. They are as follows:

"If you need an app to add quickly and easily lyrics to your iTunes Library..."

This is clumsy, instead you would say:

"If you need an app to add lyrics to your iTunes Library quickly and easily..."

The second one is:

"... that let you very fastly "Clip lyrics" from the web"

First of all, in this instance you should use "lets" not "let". Secondly, the adjective "fast" does not take on an -ly ending (there is a word "fastly", however, which means "firm"). The sentence should be rewritten:

"...that lets you quickly clip lyrics from the web..."

Please don't think my purpose is to make fun of you. I can assure you that is not my intention. I am just trying to help.
