The Songs Lyrics History
Song lyrics are known since the very beginning of song writing in ancient times. Mayan people have written lyrics on stones, for songs dedicated to gods and performed on rituals. Then in ancient Egypt lyrics have been found on papyrus sheets which represented songs that ancient pharaohs wanted to listen, and also song lyrics dedicated to Amon Ra the Egyptian god of the sun. Many song lyrics are now interpreted and translated to English or other languages and the originals writings are kept in museums around the world.
Song lyrics have taken their special place since the ending of the Baroko and special attention has been given since then. The Lyrics revolution appears with the fast development of technology where music has gained a special place in every culture. The early 60es, 70es and 90es bring the first lyrics that people actually paid special attention on, since they represented the emotional adventures, the life experience etc. Love has gained a special place in song lyrics since it's descriptions, stories and adventures are an enormous source of experience and inspiration.
With the appearance of computers, internet, mp3 players etc, lyrics have made yet another revolution in song writing and music it's self. Since the music is developing really fast and the number of different style is constantly increasing, lyrics again become more like one with the music and sometimes are hard to understand or remember. So people wanted to know every songs lyrics and started searching for them everywhere. The demand raised and soon lyrics for each and every song were distributed trough all the media.
Karaoke machines now digitally show the lyrics of every song that plays. Videos with lyrics included actually gain more viewers than the original and official song videos. Many kinds of media for distributing lyrics appear and also millions of websites for distributing lyrics.
The latest gadgets can not be imagined without the ability for distributing lyrics, so now where ever you listen to music you also have the ability to search for the lyrics, read them, and actually be able to sing the song without any mistakes in pronunciation the words or understanding random parts of each song.

Can you believe it has been 30 years since the music world was introduced to British sensation, WHAM? Crazy but true and, fortunately for us, George Michael has recovered from a nasty bout with pneumonia and is more than willing to team up with former bandmate, Andrew Ridgeley, for a one-night celebration! That’s amazing!
As Michael explains: “On June 29 it will be 30 years to the day that 'Wham! Rap', our first single, entered the charts. To celebrate, I'm releasing my new song. I dreamed of a career as a singer/songwriter from an early age but never could I have known I'd still be here 30 years later, with much more music to give."
I’m not going to be able to get “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go!” out of my head all day, although I did love a lot of their other songs too (“Freedom,” “I’m Your Man”… heck, I play “Last Christmas” every holiday season!).
While the news is very exciting for fans, they shouldn’t get their hopes up about this leading to a more permanent reunion. One source says: "they probably won't do a long tour or release new material like Take That but they do want to commemorate the event with a big gig … And an even bigger party afterwards!”
With George Michaels involved, it’s most definitely going to be a party!
"WHAM to Reunite for 30th Anniversary!" was originally published to Wham! on KOvideo
