Will Fly The problem with Discogs (70* d) RE: The problem with Discogs 10 Apr 19


The main problem with all this is that it's the internet we're talking about and, quite often, the gold that's in there is buried under a heap of crap. Try the experiment for yourself:

Do a Google search for a song, being careful to add the word "lyrics" to the search - in the vain hope that you'll find the composer. Not a chance. Try "Somewhere Over The Rainbow lyrics". Virtually every site in the search list will say 'lyrics Israel Kamakawiwo'ole', or 'lyrics Judy Garland', or 'lyrics Eva Cassidy'. The composer? Hardly a mention until you get to Wikipedia...

Any database, or so-called database which has little or no overarching control is bound to be dubious. That's just the way it is.
