Summary0013995: Auto-lookup of lyrics not working for some tracks
DescriptionI'm not sure why, but when I was attempting to lookup lyrics for the following tracks by Peter Paul & Mary:
Don't think twice, it's alright
The king of names

...they either:
- fail to lookup
- lookup the following:
<strong>MPB no Estúdio Showlivre</strong>

Note: MM5 should also have some logic to detect when the lyrics are bad (e.g. if it's only 2 lines of text)

TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2061

Re detection of wrong lyrics - it could be quite problematic, some songs could have very very short lyrics. Maybe we could detect some suspicious content, like unexpected tags ("</").

Not working server removed in build 2061. Added lyric sources management to Options - Library - Metadata lookup.

Resolving. Misspellings should be solved by future MusicBrainz auto-tagging feature, it could affect also artwork searching, should not be handled only by lyrics lookup.

Lookups for variants of tracks by Peter Paul and Mary are still failing in 2217 even though spelling is correct. See:

The spelling is not correct, it is not "Peter Paul & Marry" but "Peter, Paul & Marry", sadly, lyric servers do not support fuzzy search and it is very hard for us to guess, that there should be comma somewhere.

Some fuzzy search are returning data, some not, guess we can't do much for it anyway.

Test note: Correcting fuzzy search manually return correctly for same tracks.
