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.

Cher is the latest celebrity to inspire a Broadway musical.Â In fact, just this week, weâ€™ve heard about the Spice Girls-inspired show, although, admittedly, that one will take place at Picadilly Theatre in the United Kingdom.
Never one to let others steal her thunder, Cher made the announcement herself on Twitter.Â The plot is supposed to follow her from her beginnings 50 years ago (yes, five whole decades!) all the way through her journey to today.
She tweeted (in a series of messages): "Prods [producers] are writing [a] musical now about my life with my music. There are three Chers!" "I'm helping to write cause I was there and know stories that no one knows but me!" "I hope it happens ... Broadway! It's VERY SLOW PROCESS! [We have] been working on it quite a while now."
Three Chers!?Â But there can be just one!Â All kidding aside, the three periods will be her life during the 60s/70s while she was married to Sonny Bono, another will be her post-divorce life in the mid-70s through her Believe tour in the 90s and finally, one will represent her life today.Â Apparently, these three Chers will be portrayed by three different actresses who will come together to sing â€œIf I Could Turn Back Time.â€?Â How does Cher feel about this?Â She tweeted: "I could be old Cher! She's wise [and] tells [the two] young ones not [to] fear [the] future."
Can you imagine what the set and costumes are going to be like for this extravaganza?!Â I cannot even begin to appreciate how much excitement this is going to give the production team.Â
