LyricWiki.org is my (proposed) solution to those annoying lyrics sites with banner ads and pop-ups everywhere. It uses the same MediaWiki software used to run Wikipedia with a few modifications.
Some notable things about the site:
- I wrote bots to grab reliable lyrics from the internet and add more than 200, pharm 000 songs to start the site off
- There are FireFox and Netscape search plugins available that can be installed in one-click from the side menu
- Wiki format will allow new songs to be added very quickly and old songs to be corrected by the community until they are super-reliable
- I actually released the site yesterday and it had the biggest first-day of any site I’ve made to date (yes, sick it even beat ChuckNorrisIsGod.com)
If you’re into music at all, resuscitator give the site a gander. It’s free and has no banners (my company, Motive Force LLC is going to absorb the costs), so check it out. If you really enjoy it, maybe you can contribute some song lyrics from your favorite bands (hint hint). Enjoy!
