I appreciate the addition of lyrics downloading to BeaTunes. Previously, I found it annoying to find lyrics by Googling because of how the lyric websites blast you with advertising.

Question: Is there a way to identify which songs in the library have lyrics, and which are without them through a tag or query?

  • beaTunes: 2.1.1
  • JVM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
  • Version: 14.3-b01
  • Vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc.
  • OS: Windows XP 5.1, x86

    no - unfortunately there is no such thing.
    But when you add Lyrics through the analysis task, you can choose whether you want to replace existing lyrics or not.

    Hope this helps,

    This should help speed up the loading process.
