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.
The lyrics phenomena is everywhere and it will be here for a long time. People are becoming more and more curious about what's the song about, and not just listening to the melody. This improves the music development quality and helps people enjoy the progress of creating and listening to music.

The Isle of Wight Festival this year may have been on the receiving end of a huge deluge that saw gridlocked patrons sleeping in their cars. However, promoters have been absolutely amazed at the resilience of the crowd who toughed it out despite the inclement conditions. Although numbers might have been just slightly less than last year's 65,000 concert-goers, all reports state that campers rose to the challenge as they sported their "wellies" and raincoats to enjoy some of the top acts on the planet.
Friday saw Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on the Main Stage where they pleased their followers with a huge set of their greatest hits. Earlier on the Main Stage, Elbow made a point that the inclement weather hadn't dampened their spirits, especially when the vocalist said, "This is one weekend we re-affirm our faith in humanity."
On Saturday fans experienced Pearl Jam and Biffy Clyro. While on Sunday the Main Stage headline acts included none other than the Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, followed by Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
The line up for the Big Top also included some big names, including: Friday - Lana Del Rey. Saturday saw Professor Green and Katy B, while Sunday's Big Top line up included The Darkness and Spector, just to mention some of the huge acts on show.
Promoters may not be able to control the weather, but by all reports (and the huge 55,000 support) inclement conditions don't seem to get in the way of having a good time.
