How about the regulars here reminding us of the best sites for finding song lyrics ? 'cause I for one have forgotten to add the sites to my 'Favourites' list !

I usually just do a search on whatever lyrics I want, along with the artist, or go to an artist site, so I can't remember any specific lyrics sites.

A lot of the lyrics sites have horrible pop-ups so you are probably better off searching for a fan site of the particular band you are looking for. Most fan sites will have lyrics and less pop-ups unless they are hosted on tripod, lycos, geocities, etc.

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly
From the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see

a quick note for anyone who wants to never see a pop up again: download the opera browser at Opera

The version with an unintrusive ad banner is free, it's a fast browser, and it allows you many options (blocking pop up windows is just one) that you will probably never get with IE and Netscape. But opera can't completely replace those browsers, as there are compatability issues with imbedded multimedia, java, and some cascading style sheets.

Bad news for lyrics searches:

Check this BBC story on the Music Publishers Association cracking down on internet song lyrics sites because most lyrics are copyrighted, and most sites don't have permission to display the lyrics.

Get 'em while they're there.

Another suggestion about pop-ups... I found a piece of software called PopUpCop with a free eval and $20US to buy... it stops pop ups, flash auto play, animated gifs, and lots more and is remarkable customizable. It lives as a toolbar in IE... don't know about others. It really changed the web expreience for me. But its just a thought.

I use google advance search and type in the part I know as a phrase and then in all the words "song lyrics". This usually works.
