How do I Find a Song Using Only a Portion of the Lyrics?
Perhaps you heard a song on the radio that you liked, but you don't know the name. Or, maybe you need to locate a song with certain lyrics for a presentation. Even if you only know a portion of the lyrics of a song, you can find out the title and artist with a bit of online research. With just a few words, you can discover the answer to your dilemma.
Navigate to Yahoo Music or Song Lyrics.com.
Enter a portion of the lyrics from the song in question into the designated search box.
Click "Go" or "Search" to receive results.
View the results. You may receive as few as one result, or you may receive a list of results to sort through to find the song.
Tips & Warnings
- You can also type in the portion of lyrics, enclosed within quotation marks, into a search engine such as Google, but the results you receive won't be as targeted as when you go directly to music lyric search site.
- If you use lyrics or a song within a presentation, make sure to give credit to the artist and the producer to avoid violating U.S. copyright laws.
