Stuff we've discussed on IRC.

Yahoo! Music now has a dedicated lyrics search engine, its rather cute
It's a nice idea, but it has the minor problem of being completely useless.
No Richard Shindell or Girlyman or Show of Hands -- those I can sort of understand.
But no Pink Floyd, Cosmic Rough Riders, Counting Crows, Nick Drake, Queen, or Semisonic?
It also has Yahoo!'s trademark appallingly bad web design. ;)
Aside from the animated adverts, I quite like the design. I'm surprised about the lack of artists, I only tried one song and got a perfect match.
Still, it is new. Perhaps they'll license other artists in time.
... OK, the rendering of lyrics as an image is dreadful though.
