It's About Connection

Posted on June 10, 2009 at 8:54am 1 Comment

As a middle school teacher, if I have learned anything about being an effective teacher, I have learned it's all about connection. Not connection with 'the class' because there's no such thing as 'the class'. The connection(s) you must cultivate are those between you and each and every student.

Students will largely forget what you say to them but they will never forget how you made them feel. Connection offers the opportunity for you to build… Continue

Hi Andrew--thanks for the compliment. You made me blush and I made my husband come in and see (he spends a lot of time teasing me about my newfound love for everything web2.0). Of course, he is a big Star Wars fan. . . ! Back at you--I really enjoy reading what you write and I'm going to check out Seth Grodin by your recommendation.

1. Get Lyrical - a Lyrics Search Engine
Get Lyrical is an excellent lyrics search engine. You can search by song lyric, artist, song, or album.

2. Lyrics Robot-Lyrics Search Engine
The thing I like most about Lyrics Robot is their absolutely huge artist directory. Just click on any of the alphabet letters on the Lyrics Robot home page and you'll retrieve a wide range of artists. Lyrics Robot claims to have "3 Million Entries - 500,000 Songs - 40,000 Artists", which is obviously a lot. The lyric search process seems a bit clunky, but I was still able to find some good answers. Sort your lyric search results by site to get a more organized lyric search results page.
3. Lyrics Search Engine
Search over 100,000 songs with I was able to find good results with my search for what the world needs now, including other songs and albums of Burt Bacharach that I didn't even know existed. All lyric search results for open in a new window;I didn't much like this but it's a small issue. Good index of lyrics and easily implemented lyric search.
4. MetroLyrics-A Lyric Search Engine and More
MetroLyrics features over 262,000 music lyrics (that's quite a few), but even better than MetroLyrics lyric search are the various music categories that they have available, such as list of artists by music genre, Top 100 Most Popular lyrics, and Christmas music, which at the time of this writing spanned over 20 jam-packed pages.
5. My Lyrics Finder -MLFinder-Lyrics Search Engine
Simple and uncluttered, MLFinder delivers fast and relevant results with a few little extras: look at your lyric search results and you'll see when that song was added, an opportunity to buy the song lyric (sheet music), buy posters of the artist, or send that lyric to a friend. MLFinder has "10,000+ artists - 1,000,000+ song lyrics & growing." Don't forget to check out the Billboard Hot 100; click on any of the song URL's and you'll be taken to that song's lyrics.
6. Rock Wisdom-Song Quotes Search
Rock Wisdom features an immense database of song quotes-"the main purpose of this collection of quotes from Rock and Roll music is to celebrate and provide a documented reference to an under appreciated form of literature." You can search by subject, search by artist,browser through popular artists, get a random rock quote, or look up the full lyrics (this links to outside sites). Over 70 categories of Rock Wisdom goodness; this site is an online archive of sorts for rock and roll history.
7. Lyrical Discord-Lyrics Database
Search lyrics by artist, song, or keyphrase with Lyrical Discord. The most popular songs are featured right on the front page. here's an example of what I liked most about Lyrical Discord-I did a search for hard day's night and not only did it bring up the classic Beatles song, but also other song lyrics in that album, all song lyrics by that artist and other albums by that artist. A nice touch for anyone who's not looking for song lyrics alone.
8. A to Z Lyrics Universe
A to Z Lyrics Universe features over 50,000 searchable song lyrics. You can browse by artist or band name in their alphabetical directory, or you can just type in a lyric snippet. Song lyrics results will open up in a new window. A to Z Lyrics Universe features mostly newer songs from the year 2000 and up; lots of hip-hop, Top 40 kind of stuff here.
9. Search Engine
In addition to a strong lyric search experience (over 74,000 songs indexed at the time of this writing), also offers some unique user features such as artist birthdays displayed on the front page, DailyKeys, links to the most popular song requests by day, and a list on the far left side of the Top 20 Albums (with links to these albums lyrics) on
10. Lyrics Search, Album Covers
Lyrics Spot not only has a sizable database of lyrics-over 160,000 at the time of this writing-but they offer CD cover images of whatever artist you're looking for as well. Search by artist, album or song, browse the alphabetical directory, check out Lyrics Spot's top songs, or check out the Billboard Top 12 albums, with links to song lyrics.
