Important search tips
1. You may only search one field (Title, Performer, etc.) at a time. Unfortunately, advanced searches (using operators such as AND, OR, etc.) are not possible at this time.
2. Keywords may be found either in a song's title or in its lyrics (if the lyrics are available online).
3. Searches are not case-sensitive -- e.g., the query "einstein" will yield the same results as "Einstein" -- but only recognize exact sequences of characters -- e.g., the query "Al Einstein" will not match entries containing "Albert Einstein," and "muscle" will not match "muscular" or "musculoskeletal." Because of this, searching for a single word or part of a word --e.g., "einstein" or "musc" -- generally works better than searching for a long phrase.
4. In the table of search results, all yellow words are links. Clicking on a song title, album title, performer, or writer will trigger a database search for the words that you clicked. In contrast, the links for lyrics, sound samples, and purchasing information are external links that will open in a separate window.
5. If the results of an initial keyword search are unsatisfactory, try doing a search using closely related words. For example, if you don't find what you need with a search for "Avogadro's number," try a search for "mole."
