Lyrics::Fetcher::Google - Get some lyrics. Maybe.


  use Lyrics::Fetcher;

  $Lyrics::Fetcher::gid = '<your google API id>';

  print Lyrics::Fetcher->fetch("<artist>","<song>","Google");


This module tries to find lyrics on the web. Sometimes it works. But it probably won't.

It searches google for an initial set. It then finds the largest block of plain text in the top 5 results. Those results are then compared to one another and weighted. The idea being that a large block of text on one site may be a bunch of poo, but a large area of similar text on multiple sites most likely is the lyrics for which you are looking.


Yes. I would be happy to hear that this worked for someone. Let me know if it does. I may even respond if you let me know that it doesn't.
