  1. According to the website, it’s no longer being managed. It’s a dead program and no one else has seemed to make anything similar.

    • You’re wrong my friend! There is an other great program called Fabio’s iTunes Lyrics downloader. It works even better! You can find it here: http://lyricsdownloader.altervista.org/sito/

    this particular one wont be up again because it uses lyricwiki and lyricwiki doesnt let the program have lyrics anymore >:-/
    they would have to change it to a different site for its lyrics but it still hasnt D:
    while it was working it was awesome though.
