Even though progress is continuing apace with music catalogues getting online, lyrics for all those songs have been noticeable by their absence. Fear not, the days of kissthisguy and other extremely amusing websites could be numbered as Gracenote has signed a deal to license the lyrics to more than 1 million songs. The payoff will come through Gracenote supplying lyrics, along with song titles etc as provided through CDDB, to the digital music services such as iTunes etc.

Personally, I like the mystery I’m not sure I really really want to know the correct lyric to Golden Brown by The Stranglers. I’m still trying to work out what a mancheron is (mind she runs btw).
