In an effort to cut down on maintenance/testing of some of the lyrics sources and provide a reasonable default for users, I thought I’d start a discussion on which lyrics sources are worth keeping vs which can be cut (if any).
|musixmatch.com||to be determined… seems it has some issues|
|Lyrics Wiki||Used to be a great resource, but is closed indefinitely for editing|
|chartlyrics.com||- seems pretty lacking and not updated|
|elyricsworld.com||- last update was 2013|
|lyricsmania.com||seems updated at least|
|lyrics.wikia.com||we already have it as a standalone which should be more reliable|
|songlyrics.com||Doesn’t seem to be updated any longer|
|sweetslyrics.com||seems fairly lacking|
Do any of the google sources provide any additional lyrics not covered by the 3 independent sources we have? I can see the foreign sites being worthwhile for music in that language.
Now, I know you can have your own custom search engine for google sources, but I’m just thinking about this for the standard user that generally won’t do that what seems like a good default and from a developer standpoint as far as testing/maintaining goes (not that it’s too difficult).
Thoughts? Maybe the more sources the better.
