Wow, thank you!  Does this get the metadata for CD import also? (I 
haven't tried this yet)

The lyrics come from python grabbers, one for each source that might 
have lyrics.  Genius is tried early and finds a string like "9 
Contributors" which stops the search.  Lately I get good results only 
from lyrics.com by manually selecting it from the list.

Probably most of the grabbers need updates due to source site changes.  
We could change the order to list more successful grabbers first, but 
even this changes over time as sites break the grabbers.
