Lyric server was one of those prjects that culled entrys from the willing
motions of the nets million fingers of fandom. It was greater then the sum
of any one focused effort or packaging. It was the text dope stright out
off the music and into the ascii entry to your brian.

Two test cases for gigabeat...

REM....finds 5 lyrics (3 by rem (loosing my
religion, everybody hurts and Daysleeper) plys an R kelly song (we Ride)
and an Ink Spots number (we three).

Tom Waits...finds one song listed artits is Rod Stewart for his cover of
the tom waits song Downtown Train.

Gigabeat is megafucked.

Oh and this is sweet
