How come there isn't a database that links song lyrics up with music files? I can guess that there's probably some stupid legal reason why not. But it would be quite handy if, when I play an MP3 or other music file on my computer, or anywhere else, if the lyrics were just a click away. Sure, most song lyrics are somewhere on the net, but I'd like it to be an integrated function. Instant Karaoke. I usually don't pay much attention to lyrics, because I can't hear most of what people sing.

When I was a teenager, sitting reading sci-fi comic books with one of my best friends, we were listening a lot to The Who's "Armenia City in the Sky" and the rest of the album "The Who Sell Out (Heinz Baked Beans)", all of which had great meaning to us at the time, evoking intriguing futuristic dream worlds, and I would have the chorus part stuck in my mind for years. Now, looking at the lyrics, and seeing what the words actually are, it makes absolutely no sense to me. And doesn't even sound the same. And we weren't even on drugs or anything. But even shared perception can be a quite subjective thing.
