Special thanks to BigGuy48220 for all the help on this. We are now at over 7,500 songs with lyrics. Remember, just click on the "information" icon (i) to view lyrics. We continue to add daily so keep checking back if your favorite song(s) do not have them yet. Also, if you have lyrics for the ones that are missing, please send them to us.

We have just over 10,000 songs in our catalogue counting instrumentals and non-English songs (We don't add the lyrics to them because some of the letters have accents and other things that will not display properly on the page and reek havoc on database searches). We currently have about 1,800 songs that need lyrics. I am adding more daily but so far, there are about 1,200 songs that I have not been able to find lyrics for. So, if you happen to have any lyrics or have the physical CD with lyrics for any of the songs that we do not have lyrics for already, I would so appreciate it if you could scan the lyrics or if you feel real ambitious, type them out and email them to me at tom@deadtoselfradio.com or email me and I will send you a list of songs that still need lyrics.

I thought that I would post some statistics here. This is what we have on D2S:
Bands - 912
Albums - 1,980
Songs - 10,551 (548 instrumental, 285 non-English)
Songs w/lyrics - 7,725

So basically, out of a possible 9,718 songs that we can add lyrics to, we have 7,725 which means we only have 1,993 songs without lyrics. So about 80% of our songs that are in English have lyrics added... not too shabby. Hope to add more soon.
