I was out at a show on Friday, and had a few beers, and then suddenly I was home, and I was listening to Xiu Xiu’s version of Fast Car, and I really had to know what the lyrics were.

And before you know it, I had won around fifteen new iPhone 5s from various lyrics sites.

So yesterday I thought there should be a way to display lyrics in Emacs without winning any iPhones, so I went looking for APIs.  First I did MusixMatch before discovering that they only returned 30% of the lyrics.

Lyric Wiki seemed more promising, although heavy on iPhone winnings.  The API doesn’t return much, but I cheated.

The world should be safe now.
