Clearly you *can* teach an old dog new tricks. The old dog we鈥檙e talking about right now is your favorite factchecker, Google. Want to know the temperature in the city you鈥檙e traveling to? Google it and the answer appears below without having to click on to Want to calculate what your roommate owes you this month in bills? Type your math problem in the search bar and Google adds up the answer without making you open your calculator app. But the latest hack up the search engine鈥檚 sleeve might just win a bet or two for you. Especially in a karaoke battle.


You already turn to Google to call up confusing lyrics on demand (or, admit it, to make that perfect pun in your social status). Now, instead of directing you to some site lyric search that鈥檚 light on the UI design, it鈥檚 cutting out the middleman and serving up the correct lyrics after you press enter.


Google鈥檚 lyric trick isn鈥檛 foolproof; there are tunes out there that the search engine either can鈥檛 crack the code to, hasn鈥檛 heard of (guess Google鈥檚 not as indie as you, bro) or might not have the rights to. As Newsweek points out, Google鈥檚 riding a fine legal line here. Some lyric search sites have struggled with copyright issues so there鈥檚 no guarantee that Google will always help you prep for your next Nicki rap battle.

But it sure does make us a little nostalgic for CD booklets.
