google musicAnother One Bites the Dust... The lyrics business just got hit big, Google is now showing detailed lyrics for many song titles in the search results.

This was spotted by Glenn Gabe and posted on Google+. Glenn said, "The hammer has fallen. Google now displaying lyrics in the SERPs."

Indeed and I doubt any lyrics web sites are shocked by this, they knew it would come. It is all part of Google's swiss army knife toolbox to screw publishers and help searchers.
