Where does your enterprise stand on the AI adoption curve? Take our AI survey to find out.

Microsoft search engine Bing might play second fiddle to Google, but it wants to be the first one you think of when trying to find lyrics.

Case in point, today the company rolled out a new lyric search tool that allows you to see all the lyrics from a particular song without having to click through to another site. This is hardly the first instance of Bing attempting to deliver the answers you seek about entertainment-related subjects directly on the search site: It also provides short actors’ bios, movie summaries, and more.

The new lyrics search tool from Bing not only displays the lyrics, but also the artist and album information about the song as well.

My guess is that Mircosoft is paying licensing fees to display these lyrics in their entirety, which could be a tad expensive. Then again, if it makes people chose Bing over Google, it might be worth it.
