(Thanks to Sean)
LyricWiki is a free, editable lyrics database that has over 2,054,169 pages of lyrics, albums and artists. Included in that database can be songs from any genre, country, or language imaginable. Whatever you are into musically, there is likely something here for you.
A good place to start is by checking out our FAQ and Help pages. The Formatting Artists, Formatting Albums and Formatting Songs are particularly useful sections. Another way to familiarise yourself with the way we do things here at LyricWiki is to look at some of the Artist, Album and Song pages with a Gold star in the top right corner.
If you need further assistance, you can leave a note on the LyricWiki Help Desk. The Help Desk is on the watchlists of the site administrators, so you are likely to get an answer fairly quickly. LyricWiki also has its own chat room, so you might also be able to obtain answers to some of your questions by asking the helpful LyricWikians that frequent there.
If you wish to make comments or suggestions about the site, or if you have any site-related questions, the best place to post these is at the Community Portal. The Community Portal is where most of the discussions about the site and planning goes on.
Important: LyricWiki breaks some of the usual capitalization rules for artists, albums, and song titles. Since this applies to all languages using the Latin alphabet, please be sure to familiarise yourself with our policy by reading LyricWiki:Page Names.

Hi. I've undone your move from Nina Hagen:Wenn ich ein Junge wär. I know in German only nouns start with capitals, but as it was, it corresponds to our page naming policy. There seem to be missing quite some capitals in the lyrics of [] though, perhaps you can fix them? --Mischko 11:16, 15 July 2007 (EDT)
- I agree, I see the problem of inconsistent diction Otto67at 03:44, 17 July 2007 (EDT)
Why did you remove all the "C=64"s from the titles of the Welle:Erdball songs? On the CDs those is printed as part of the title. Should be used here too. --MetalSnake 16:54, 20 July 2007 (EDT)
- I see, I'm sorry, I thought this is an error, something like a bad charakter-set. I'll never do it again. Otto67at 14:02, 27 July 2007 (EDT)
- C=64 stands for Commodore 64 --MetalSnake 07:14, 29 July 2007 (EDT)
fLetter modification not recommended
please, please, please do not change the fLetter on pages to your preference, Erik Bauer is under E, not B,... I have toiled for hours over a hot
stove computor to straighten those out... ;) 18:55, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
- Sorry, I am not shure, how this is used in english, but in german, the artists are sorted by there familyname. How would someone ever find someones brother or father? :)
- How about the articles? the or der? They are also ignored by catalogues, or else there are thousands of bands or songs under d or t, and not everyone knows, if a bandname uses an article or not. I often have this problem :) --Otto67at 19:03, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
- lw is an international site, we break many conventions of many countries in order to help people from all over the world find what they are looking for. You can create redirects for alternate spellings, or last name/first name cases, band name with or without the article, de, das, doh, al, el, les, los etc. Oak Ridge Boys redirects to The Oak Ridge Boys, you can create a redirect for Bauer, Arik to Arik Bauer. You may want to spend some time studying the available and fairly comprehensive doocumentation that fellow admins have toiled over for a few years.... 19:13, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
- oki, you have convinced me, i will do so, sounds to be very much work :) --Otto67at 01:42, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
