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.

American pop punk band, Blink-182, are likely to make some parts of their current world tour without their drummer, Travis Barker, next year.
Back in 2008, Barker barely survived a plane crash in which four people (crew and passengers) died. He has since not flown ... yes, NOT FLOWN ... choosing other means of transport when touring. Currently the band is touring Europe promoting their latest album, Neighborhoods, and are scheduled to tour Australia in 2013. The prospect of a 24 hour flight to the "Land Downunder" is too much for Travis Barker to bear. Hence, at this stage, the band will have to tour the Aussie leg without him.
Not wanting to disappoint fans, Travis said, "It's hard to say what the band could do or what its potential is, because I can't really get everywhere. I'm contemplating getting knocked out and getting on a plane to Australia. I want to overcome that eventually. My kids are scared to death to fly. I want them to witness me overcome it."
At this stage, Blink-182 have not made any statements about alternate details.
Currently they have been performing in the UK. Later this month they will return to Britain to headline Manchester's O2 Apollo on July 24, and then play London's O2 Academy Brixton on July 25 and 26.
Blink-182 achieved great success with the multi-platinum selling album Enema of the State in 1999 which sold more than 15 million copies worldwide.
Their latest album, Neighborhoods, was released in September, 2011. It has charted well, but not to the same extent as the highly successful Enema of the State.
The first single released from the Neighborhoods album was the track, Up All Night.
