Everyone seems to post "does anyone know the song with "such and such" as the lyrics" on here. There are usually quite good deal of posts like that.

Well this is going to be a short post, but very informative.

If you are looking for a song, follow these steps.

1.In your webaddress bar, type in google.com.

2.In the box for search, type in the lyrics you know. Click "google search" [color=red]It works best if you type "lyrics" after the lyrics you know, especially if they are all common words[color]

3.Click the first link that comes to you.

4.Make sure that it seems like the song you're thinking of. If not, go to the second one, or maybe a one that has a different artist in the title. Keep trying and I pretty much promise you'll find it. There was only one time I couldn't find a song, but that was a song I heard in the Bahamas.

Yay! You have now found your song! Go download it and be happy! That wasn't so hard now, was it?

I'll admit, I'm guilty of this.


But now, I know what to do if I ever find myself in this situation again. Great post, DLS. This should be a sticky.

hehe, I was just about to make a post asking if anyone knew a certain song. I guess we're all just on dance.net so much that we forget that there is a whole wide internet out there :)

Google has saved me countless times, Im always trying to find a song that I havnt heard in YEARS and only remember a line, so I look up that line, and eventually find it.

Also, I get great results if I only know the lyrics, I type them in but in "quotes" and then add lyrics. It almost always works - and it would cut down about a million posts if people did the same.

I used the name of the song as an example. I could have used "if you've got money honey we got your disease." and obviously it's not common sense when there are people asking what a song is over and over again.

Thanks for the info. However, there is a song that I want that the only two words I know are "and dance". I'm sure could turn up hundreds of songs with those lyrics but this is one that used to be performed by the Dance Olympus faculty at the conventions. If anyone knows the name of the song, please let me know. Thank you.

^Don't think the highlight was necessary. Plus, difficult to read.

And if it's supposedly so obvious, then why did six people post every day with lyrics asking for the title of the song?

Apparently, not everyone DID know, or this post would not have been neccessary, and you wouldn't have to have been rude about it.
