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.

News Top Artists
Maroon 5 with their latest single Payphone are at the top of the UK charts, relishing the enjoyment of their first UK scalp.
"Payphone" features US rapper, Wiz Khalifa, who assists with some of the vocals. Reaching the pole position has bowled Cherl Cole off the top with Call My Name edging down a place to number two.
In the UK, Maroon 5 only went close to the coveted number one position in 2007 with Makes Me Wonder and again in 2011 with Moves Like Jagger. Both times they got to number two, but never to the top. Incidentally "Moves Like Jagger" featuring Christina Aguilera became the biggest selling single for 2011, but it just didn't quite have the "oomph" to reach number one.
In the music video for Payphone, Adam Levine (lead singer for Maroon 5) is seen getting out of a fast convertible and going over to a payphone in the middle of nowhere. He dials a number and starts singing the track. The next scene shows the vocalist stylishly dressed at work in an office, where he is viewing data on a computer monitor and shuffling around sheets of paper. Looking at him here, he is not happy. A gorgeous young lady walks past his desk, and he is (of course) distracted.
Suddenly, disguised and heavily armed robbers break into the office shooting wildly, while they make their way to the area where cash is stored. All the office employees have crouched down beside their desks or on the floor. Adam Levine signals to the young lady and they prepare for a getaway.
Dodging bullets they slip away, and Adam gets into a fast convertible. He races away from the scene despite bullets coming at him from all directions. A police chase follows, but he cunningly gets away.
The clip finishes where it started with Adam Levine getting into the payphone.
