Editors' reviewThis free toolbar simply provides quick access to the MetroLyrics Web site. You can search for lyrics by artist, album, song, and release year, and you can request unlisted lyrics and view upcoming albums. In addition to trolling the MetroLyrics site, the application also will let you perform queries via Yahoo or Google. In our tests, we didn't have a problem locating most of the lyrics we wanted, although the toolbar couldn't dig up every obscure artist or album we threw its way. If you routinely search the Internet for song lyrics, this freebie can save you some time, as long as you don't expect extraneous features not related to its primary job.
MetroLyrics Toolbar enables you to search a database with more than 250,000 entries. If you only know a few sentences from a song and can't remember the song title, the search index within Google and Yahoo will help you find your song in seconds. The top-100 lyrics are only a click away, and you can check discussions in the forum and manage your forum preferences. The toolbar allows you to submit new lyrics and request lyrics not in the database to be e-mailed to you. Version 1.0.1 features a slight change in the toolbar layout.
