Easily find lyrics for all your songs

LyricsFetcher main interface

What does it do?

LyricsFetcher automatically fetches lyrics for all the songs within your iTunes or Windows Media Player library.

How to use it

  1. Download LyricsFetcher and install it.
  2. The first time you run LyricsFetcher it examines your music library to decide which songs don't have lyrics. This process can take some time, but only needs to happen once.
  3. Once LyricsFetcher has loaded your music library, you select the songs for which you want to find lyrics and click Fetch. LyricsFetcher will queue those songs and try to find lyrics for each of them.

That it!

Source code

Full source code is also available. If you are interested, you are welcome to look under the hood and see how it works.

If you are a very keen developer, you can access the SVN repository directly for this project. There are details on how to use Subversion here. The following SVN command will fetch the most recent version from the repository:

svn co lyricsfetcher

Please remember that code within the SVN is bleeding edge. It has not been well-tested and is almost certainly full of bugs. If you just want to play with the LyricsFetcher, it’s better to stay with the official releases, where the bugs are (hopefully) less obvious.
