A Song Lyrics Website That Doesn’t Suck

A Google search for song lyrics turns up “about 266,000,000 results,” and most of what you’ll find is total crap. The lyrics might be accurate — the key word there is might — but the site’s are downright painful to use, full as they are of intrusive and irrelevant ads.

There’s a new player on the scene, though. Lyricful boasts a clean interface, a sizable database, and some nifty extras. The ads, if you could even call them that, are for concert tickets and legit downloads (from either Amazon or iTunes, take your pick) — that is, they’re for services that are relevant and might actually benefit the artists whose work is being displayed on the site.

For a bit of behind the scenes dirt, check out posts by Lyricful creators Nick Plante and Seth Banks.
