Google Adds Song Lyrics To Top Of Search Results, Points Searchers To Google Play | TechCrunch

Likely to leave some people working at a few U.S. lyrics-focused Web sites humming to Adagio for Strings (which per Wikipedia, "has been performed on many public occasions, especially during times of mourning")
"With Knowledge Graph, Google has been steadily enhancing its search results pages for years with data gathered from a number of sources, including Wikipedia, the World CIA Factbook, Freebase, Google Books, online event listings, other commercial data sets and structured data from the web.

With the addition of song lyrics results to Knowledge Graph, Google is just showing longer snippets of the lyrics with a link that points to Google Play for the “full lyrics.” Or in other words, it’s a case of Google promoting its own content above search results pointing to third-party websites."
