Get Lyrical has been broken now for many months. The website it relies on lyricwiki.org no longer exists.

Great application, but after upgrading to BigSur 11.0.1 it no longer works. In Systems Preferences ->Security&Privacy->Privacy tab->Automation-> the check box for "System Events.app" was found unchecked, that I did set... this cleared the non verified developer warning, but the ap no longer works (all files come back with red unfound response).

App works great with iTunes since I got it. Unfortunately, it no longer functions with Apple Music app on Mac OS Catalina (and future versions of Mac OS, I'd suppose). Would be nice if it got an update to make it work with Apple Music.

I love this app, but it has not been updated in quite some time, and auto-updates/check for updates doesn’t work. You have to check to see if your version is the current one on the website. At any rate, I really hope it is updated to 64 bit or it will no longer work on Macs come this Summer (for macOS Catalina Beta users), or this September when macOS Catalina is officially released. Thanks developers!!

This so far is the only such app I have found that does what it states it will do without capturing data, requiring login to some site, of making the lyrics nearly impossible to copy and paste from a website. It is simple, clean and just works without a lot of overhead or ads. I am successfully using it in 10.13.6 on a MacPro Desktop 5.1. I can only hope it still works in 10.14 when released.

It downloads quickly. Unfortunately, it downloads a fair number of like-sounding words, in place of the correct ones. I'm guessing speech recognition might be a factor. Public Enemy has become unintentionally hilarious...

Works on my laptop, but not on my desktop, where I have my home folder on an external drive. Got a lot of errors about kernel.txt improperly installed. Don't see a developer link to report this.

Once again MacUpdate is way off. This version (3.8.1) came out in August 2014, not October 2016. What is the point of this web site any more...

Looks promising, but unfortunately it does not work. It starts and recognizes current or selected song, but nothing happens on click ( Yosemite 10.10.5 / iTunes 12.2.2.25 )

I was surprised that it actually did what was expected. Just select the tracks you want the lyrics to in iTunes and press the button and just wait. Now it won't always be 100% accurate, but it's pretty good. It uses the internet to find the lyrics to each song. Phew this saved me a lot of time.

It is one of the fastest and works but it hesitates quite a bit and is showing it's age. Compare to Singer Song Reader which allows the choice of lyric search sites (up to 15) which can be toggled on or off and prioritized.

Excellent program. Must use a massive database unlike any other I have tried as it found all but a handful of very obscure tracks (it even found a couple with german lyrics). If it can't find your song, make sure the title spelling is correct and you haven't switched your artists to last name first (which I did). It is great to actually have the lyrics in iTunes instead of having to switch to another app to view them. It's also great to have a program that does exactly what it says - automatically adds lyrics to iTunes. The lyrics as well are pleasant to view. No extraneous symbols or strange formatting, just a source tag at the end. Thanks for a great app!

Nice app. Does what it promises. The downside is that the app seems to freeze when it can't find any lyrics. At least I had to "Force Quit" it after a minute after using it for two minutes.
