I’ve just removed all the lyrics tags from my collection. I had obtained them from a foobar2000 plugin that fetched them from all sorts of sources. The reason I removed them is that there was a lot of garbage text, a lot of non-standard stuff, like lyrics starting with
[Artist: The Beatles] [Song: A Day in the Life]
or worse, just absolute garbage text like
lyrics lyrics kent hagnesta hill lyrics find
Which were obviously the result of the foobar’s google plugin failing to find a decent match and just forcing its way into whatever came up first.
My question is - how much better is the beets plugin for lyrics? I’m particularly interested on whether I should enable the google source or not. I have a lot of obscure music I suppose the mainstream sources won’t have in their database, but I also really don’t want garbage text like that in place of the actual lyrics ever again.
