The year-end holidays have their own songbook. It’s a favourite time to get together and sing some seasonal classics, or launch into a spirited solo in the car or at the office party. And while we all know the songs, how many of us know all the words?

LyricFind, the world leader in lyrics display, has ranked the top ten most searched for holiday lyrics. The top 10 are almost a complete salute to midcentury songwriting, apart from Mariah Carey’s essential if not viral holiday hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. “It’s no surprise that the majority of holiday lyrics being searched for are the originals,” says Catherine Fournier, LyricFind’s Marketing Manager. “It’s a time of comfort and tradition, and the lyrics in these songs reflect that.”

LyricFind is the licensing partner for major search engines, streaming services, lyric websites, and other music platforms across the globe, and gathers data from millions of searches and displays.

LyricFind, the world leader in lyric licensing and display, has teamed up with Musica.com, the most visited Spanish-language lyric site.

“This is an exciting agreement for us as Musica.com is one of the largest international lyric sites in the world,” says Darryl Ballantyne, LyricFind CEO. “The majority of its traffic comes from areas where licensed lyrics display has not gotten much traction yet, like Mexico and Argentina. It’s great to bring licenced lyrics to these markets and properly compensate songwriters and publishers.”

Based in Spain, Musica.com is the latest of the big lyric websites to partner with LyricFind and adopt its licensing model. The relationship ensures that songwriters and publishers get paid for the use of their work, and that sites have accurate, vetted lyrics available in several languages.

“At the present moment, Musica.com has over 14 million fans on Facebook and 75 million visitors each month,”  Javier Garcia, Musica.com CEO and co-founder explains. "It is a big step to globally license our lyrics in order to offer them to our Spanish-speaking audience. Our aim is to continue being the lyric reference for music on the internet."

“Musica.com is the largest and most trafficked international lyric website,” adds Roy Hennig, LyricFind’s Vice President of Sales. “While other sites may have larger audiences in the US, Musica.com reaches a much wider audience by tapping into Europe and Central and South America.”

You don’t have to understand the voice of the sea to want to sing along. That’s the takeaway from the viral success of “Umino Koe,” a mesmerizing take on fairytale romance, mixing Japanese traditional elements and pop power, by Japanese chart toppers Begin and the haunting voice of singer and actor Kenta Kiritani.

Thanks to the world’s leading lyrics provider, LyricFind, and Japanese partner SyncPower, fans everywhere will be able to sing along to a Romanized version of the song. Added to LyricFind’s offerings by popular demand, the phonetic rendering of the Japanese lyrics will be available to clients like Amazon, Deezer, Shazam and many more.

“The request of a Romanized version of the song demonstrates that the power of lyrics goes beyond message or meaning alone,” says LyricFind’s Chief Revenue Officer, Will Mills. “You don’t need to know what the words mean to want to follow along. Lyrics increase engagement and appreciation, no matter what the language.”

When the video for “Umino Koe,” part of a popular fantasy-inspired campaign for mobile company KDDI, hit YouTube in 2015, no one expected it would connect with listeners across the world. It started to rack up views, and then began making waves on iTunes. At writing in October 2016, the number of views on YouTube has climbed to nearly 60,000,000, and the video continues to attract viewers from around the world.

“We are thrilled to see people of all different backgrounds enjoying this Japanese song. It’s amazing to be able to connect the world through lyrics and give people the opportunity to experience music in a deeper way,” says Rina Oka, Chief Marketing Officer of SyncPower.
