Microsoft’s Bing lyrics search for USA, not UK

How many times has a song come on the radio and you think you know the words, but then you realize you have got it wrong? There are several ways to learn the words, like I used to by pausing and rewinding a tape back in the 70s and 80s. However, with Microsoft’s Bing lyrics search, it is easier than ever.

The service is only available in the USA, and not the UK, so you will need to make certain your MSN.com and Bing search setting location is set for United States if you wish for song lyrics to come in in the results. The reason we say MSN is because Bing results show up in the searches.

The Bing search engine will now take all the guesswork out of figuring out song lyrics, as all you have to type in is something like, “lyrics for mirrors by Justin Timberlake”, and a good portion of the words will appear at the top of the results page, and you just have to select the see more link below the lyric.

All the other usual results appear after the lyrics, all related to the song and the singer. This is just a start, so Microsoft has added 500,000 songs into its lyrics database. We searched many songs and pretty much all the lyrics came up, although this feature will create a new sort of game, as you will come up with obscure songs to see if Microsoft has the lyrics for them.
