Can't remember the lyrics? Ask Google Search1
Why force users to click on a link to see the full lyrics? It is about the almighty buck. In addition to seeing the full lyrics in Google Play, you will be prompted to purchase a digital copy of the song whose lyrics you were searching for. But artists stand to profit from more than just song purchases. According to LyricFind Chief Executive and co-founder Darryl Ballantyne, songwriters and publishers stand to net millions of dollars from lyric searches.
The new feature starts today in the U.S. Previously, searching for lyrics via Google would return links to several third party sites that display lyrics. LyricFind currently manages the rights to lyrics from more than 4000 publishers meaning that Google will probably have the words to even the most obscure track like Zydrate Anatomy, a song from the cult movie Repo! The Genetic Opera.
