[WS] Import lyrics from websites

Doesn't work for me. I get - Error connecting to server: lyrics.wikia.com

That means it doesn't have the song your looking for in its database.

Oh ok I was looking for something popular to try it out - The Beatles - Abbey Road - Come Together which is a pretty famous Band, Album and Song but it didn't come up with anything except the error that is why I thought it wasn't working.

Edit - I downloaded it again and it worked!

DarkLyrics script 0.2 produces the error connecting to www.darklyrics.com.

So, I've tried the Magistrix.de script and got it installed properly, at least it turns up in the menu in MP3tag. But whenI look for a song name, it does not find any hit, although the song is available when I enter it manually on the magistrix.de website. It's a CD with some 80's songs, so Madness "Our House" should be found. Any ideas? Thx.

All of these scripts (except darklyrics) not work today. I made a new script, please check it. Generally, it is not very easy, because the help page have too few examples, and it (the page) is clearly unfinished.

So, i'm getting this error "could not connect to host" (LyricsWiki) so that means there's no lyrics for my music?

Yes. You may try another source or the track is instrumental.

Could anyone upload a new script for genius.com ?
the older one does not work. :frowning:


I have updated the code for Genius.com , replace the

in the original script (previously posted by @tbum20) to
and seems like it's good to go

Good day.

I use this script:
Lyrics_GENIUS.src (1.2 KB)

My music collection primarily consists of hip-hop or rap songs, so i use this script and therefore genius.com because there are almost all of the lyrics to my songs.

Following problem:
I want to import the lyrics of "Deep Cover (feat Snoop Doggy Dogg.) - Dr Dre"
Now if I want to import the lyricswith this script, I have the problem.

Now the Scipt search for "Dr. Dre-Deep Cover (Feat. Snoop Doggy Dogg)-lyrics".

But now I have to remove manually "(Feat. Snoop Doggy Dogg)"because otherwise no result is found.

Wrong Search "Dr. Dre-Deep Cover (Feat. Snoop Doggy Dogg)-lyrics"

It would be correct, "Dr. Dre-Deep Cover-lyrics"

How do I have to change the script so it automatically remove the brackets and the content in the brackets (the featuring) ?

You have to change the row:
[SearchBy]=$caps(%artist%)-$replace($caps(%title%,'(' ),&,%%26,Feat)-lyrics

to your needs. As the search string depends on the values of your tags ARTIST and TITLE, what you have to change depends on how these both tags are filled.

Because of the same question in the german forum, you can find additional answers over there ...


I don't know if it's something that should be added to the lyricWiki script by default, but I had a little issue with the ’ sign in titles (imported from MusicBrainz cause it's the convention there...), so I added another replace in Line 17:


[SearchBy]=$caps(%artist%,- ):$regexp($replace($caps(%title%,'('- ),&,'%26',?,'%3F'),( '')(\l),$1\u$2)


[SearchBy]=$caps(%artist%,- ):$regexp($replace($caps(%title%,'('- ),&,'%26',?,'%3F',’,$char(39)),( '')(\l),$1\u$2)

Maybe it helps if anyone else is having the same issue :slight_smile:

It seems better to be read and understand ...
when writing the problematic character ’ as $char(146) ...

[SearchBy]=$caps(%artist%,- ):$regexp($replace($caps(%title%,'('- ),&,'%26',?,'%3F',$char(146),$char(39)),( '')(\l),$1\u$2)
... or ...
[SearchBy]=$caps(%artist%,- ):$regexp($replace($caps(%title%,'('- ),'&','%26','?','%3F','’','%27'),( '')(\l),$1\u$2)

... hopefully without colliding with the apostrophe, which is used as the string delimiter within Mp3tag.


Yeah, I used $char(39) because I had some issues with the regular apostrophe. Might as well use the $char function for the first character too, good point.

The LyricWiki did not work anymore for me.
Looks like the tag is gone.
I made some adjustments which works for me.

Update for MetroLyrics

Won't work for multiple artist names, you will have to manually remove one and any separators in the query box that comes up before you search.
