MetroLyrics Cuz It Ain’t Me, Babe

d
This week Wired magazine’s Listening Post blogger Eliot Van Buskirk covered MetroLyrics “which bills itself as the most highly trafficked lyrics site on the web (and one of the 500 fastest-growing websites in general), became the first dedicated lyrics site to “go legit” Thursday, thanks to a partnership with Gracenote that cuts music publishers in on advertising revenue.”

The web’s most highly trafficked lyrics site is also the first instance where “Songwriters and publishers will be compensated relative to the amount of traffic their songs receive on MetroLyrics or can request that their lyrics not be posted. (Of course, even novice Googlers can easily find those lyrics on sites that pay no royalties.)”

I’m posting this mainly because I enjoyed scrolling down on the Listening Post and seeing Bob Dylan’s handwritten lyrics for “It’ Ain’t Me, Babe”.
