The Unbelievable Oppression of Lyrics Webistes
November 19th, 2004
As recently as three or four years ago, it was still possible to find the lyrics to songs on the internet with limited hassle. It seems now that all of the lyrics to every song ever written in the history of the world have been hijacked by the browser plugin people. Clever.
I’m not sure what they intend to gain from this magnificent marketing move, especially since most of the sites just crash my browser in XPSP2. I’m sure it doesn’t help that apparently, twelve thousand people had the same idea. In a way, it reminds me of the Underpants Gnomes.
- Collect the lyrics to songs and irritate everybody by not actually letting them see said lyrics.
