We've all been there. We found a great song we love, but don't know the lyrics. Instinctively, you hit the Google search and wade through a sea of misspelled, poorly translated, out-of-date, or poorly interpretted lyrics listings. Granted, some songs come tagged with the lyrics, which is helpful, but that's not going to help the rest of your massive music collection of songs you've been singing along to. It's frustrating and it's messy, something the MusixMatch API could change.
The site claims a "huge collection of hit lyrics." Your next music application can tap into the database with the new ChartLyrics Lyric API. You can use it to search in several ways and, more importantly, obtain the text that makes up the words to popular songs.
The HackLolla API contest is done and we have the info about the awesome mashups that won prizes in it. The music loving developer contest, announced in May, urged applications coded against the Lollapalooza schedule and artist discovery.
