Automatically add lyrics to the entire iTunes Library
Authored by: marsu on Sep 24, '05 09:01:22PM

i love this app! i recommend to uncheck "look for chords first", this feature gets guitar chords and tabs, and while it's great it gets far less results and seems to be slower. (also i wouldn't store tabs with the songs because for every song you get loads of tabs of different quality, while the lyrics are either correct or not...)

"copy lyrics to itunes" needs to be checked and itunes needs to be running while you "cache lyrics for playlist", otherwise the lyrics will go into PearLyrics' cache only and later need to be transferred with the script as described above.

what i would need to find out now is how to search the lyrics tags of my library, so i can find music according what it talks about!
any clues?

Searching for lyrics
Authored by: pediddle on Sep 26, '05 01:11:24PM
If you enable the caching option in pearlLyrics it will create text files in ~/Library/Application Support/pearlLyrics/lyrics which are searchable by Spotlight. If you search for a lyric, spotlight will show you the text file containing it, which is named according to the artist and song. You can then look up the song in iTunes. Not quite a direct solution — maybe it could be simplified with an AppleScript?
