Whether you're a sing-like-there's-no-one-watching kind of girl (crooning in the office, whistling on your walk to shops, and annually losing your dignity at your workplace Christmas karaoke party), or a will-literally-only-sing-if-there's-no-one-watching kind of a guy (Bublé in the shower when you think there's nobody home) - most of us love a good sing song. It's not just for making us happy: singing is brain changing stuff.
So if you're serious about hitting the right notes AND nailing the lyrics to verse seven, then you need Musixmatch, one of the web's biggest music databases gone mobile. You'll be able to sing along to your favorite hits, straight from your phone, without having to fake a single word.
Musixmatch has over 5 million officially licensed lyrics and uses music matching algorithms to correctly place them with all of the songs in your mobile device's music library. So, chances are they have your lyrics.

6. Out and about and you hear a song - you're not quite sure who it's by and you've never quite been able to fathom the words. Whip out your iPhone, launch Musixmatch, select Identify Lyrics from the menu, and tap on the Musixmatch logo to get the artist, lyrics, and a link to the YouTube vid!
