Wolfram Alpha Adds Support for Song Lyrics

Lots of useful information is delivered to you by computational knowledge engine Wolfram Alpha – including lyrics, thanks to a partnership with LyricFind.

If you for example run a query for John Lennon’s “Imagine”, Wolfram Alpha will present, among other things, the song’s lyrics.


There are lots of dodgy sites out there that lure you in with the promise of song lyrics but blast you with tons of ads and other nuisances. If you want to get song lyrics from a reputable and safe location, I have some great news for you: you can get your lyrics fix on Wolfram Alpha.

Search for music on Wolfram Alpha and the computational knowledge engine will present lots of useful information: lyrics, word cloud, recordings, album art, tracklist, releases, Wikipedia page hits history.

Wolfram Alpha can provide the functionality mentioned above because it struck a partnership with LyricFind, the world’s leader in legal lyric solutions. LyricFind has some handy mobile apps to offer to iOS and Android users. LyricFind and Lyric Find Pro for iOS and Android provide easy access to millions of lyrics that cover more than 40K artists and 200K albums.

So to sum it up, you can now use computational knowledge engine Wolfram Alpha to get the lyrics to your favorite songs. If you like to sing along but you don’t know the lyrics, turn to Wolfram Alpha for help.

It’s been a while since Wolfram Alpha made the news here on FindMySoft. The last time I covered the computational knowledge engine was this April Fools, when the Wolfram|Alpha Handwritten Knowledge Engine was introduced as a prank. The Wolfram Alpha team jokinly said that the new handwritten knowledge engine computes queries just like that computational knowledge engine – the key difference is that the results are presented in handwritten format. Millions of students could find this sort of functionality very, very useful.
