Why only the first stanza of the lyrics?
  • Hello.

    I am wondering why Guayadeque downloads only the first stanza of the lyrics for each song, usually the first four lines.
    I looked for any way to change this behavior from 'Configure lyrics preferences' but it is only possible to add lyrics sources and to choose the targets for the lyrics.

    Is this behavior embedded in Guayadeque? I noticed only the lyrics not divided in stanzas are downloaded entirely.
  • This usually happens when the source is letras.mus.br, not when the source is lyrics.wikia.com for instance.
  • Please give me a example of a track that shows that behavior.

    Thanks for your help
  • Here's a short list with the name of the song and the interpreter. All the lyrics come from letras.mus.br:

    More than a feeling - Boston
    Gypsy eyes - Jimi Hendrix
    Come on let's go - Richie Valens
    You're so fine - Wilson Pickett
    Borne on the wind - Roy Orbison
    Back in the USA - Chuck Berry
    Me and Bobby Mc Gee - Janis Joplin
    Where have all the flowers gone - Marlene Dietrich
    Jenny, Jenny - Little Richard
    The midnight special - Creedence Clearwater Revival
    I still haven't found what I'm looking for - U2
    Love hurts - The Everly Brothers
    Coconut - Harry Nilsson
  • Take for instance jimi Hendrix's Gypsy eyes. This is what Guayadeque collects from letras.mus.br:

    Well I realize that I've been hypnotized, I love your gypsy eyes
    I love your gypsy eyes
    Alright!

    Three lines, the first stanza. The same happens for all of them.
    Another example is for instance Back in the U.S.A:

    Oh well, oh well, I feel so good today,
    We touched ground on an international runway
    Jet propelled back home, from over the seas to the U. S. A.

    That's all.

Howdy, Stranger!
