If Apple added lyrics to every song and made it available only to iTunes Match customers I’d pay the extra coin.
As it is, I go for lyrics the good old fashioned way. Free. That’s what Instalyrics does. Instant lyrics on your Mac or iPhone. And I’m not just talking lyrics in iTunes. Instalyrics finds lyrics for music that’s playing on iTunes, Spotify, Rdio, Radium, Sonora, and even music websites like YouTube, Last.FM, and GrooveShark.
Instalyrics doesn’t look like much and it’s not exactly complicated to use, Mac or iPhone. As an example, play a song on your iPhone.
Then, move to your apps and tap on Instalyrics.
Instalyrics goes into action and finds lyrics to match the song, then displays them on the screen so you can sing along.
Sing along? Why else do you want lyrics? Because you know you’ve been singing the wrong lyrics for years and having official lyrics right on the Mac or iPhone screen is handy.
Tiny Dancer, by Elton John
Lyrics We Sing: “Hold me closer, Tony Danza.”
Actual Lyric: “Hold me closer, tiny dancer.”
Bad Moon Rising, by Creedence Clearwater Revival
Lyrics We Sing: “There’s a bathroom on the right.”
Actual Lyric: “There’s a bad moon on the rise.”
Like A Virgin, by Madonna
Lyrics We Sing: “Like a virgin, touched for the thirty-first time.”
Actual Lyric: “Like a virgin, touched for the very first time.”
You get the idea. Isn’t that worth having a free app to give you the actual lyrics?
