    The synchronized lyrics thing doesn't work at all for me. I can put in the
    appropriate times for each line and everything, but after saving it, nothing
    will display (yes, lyrics are turned on).

    I know there was a post earlier about the lyrics problem.
    I have 2 ugly possible ways to get around the problem.
    1. (the easiest way) if you haven't EVER tried to add lyrics to the song,
    you can go to the advanced tag editor and add the lyrics that way. (I found
    that making the language "english [en]" instead of "english (United States)"
    or a specific type of English makes wmp happier... in other words, no error.)
    The only thing with this solution is that you can only do it this way once
    because after you hit "apply" and "ok" it's not going to be there when you go
    to advanced tag editor next time.

    2. Go to the properties of the song (right-click, hit "properties"). Then go
    to the "Summary" tab and hit the "advanced" button. You can add/edit the
    static lyrics there. The only thing is that you can't do line breaks this way
    (or I don't know how to add line breaks this way), so it'll look messy if you
    add lyrics just from this solution.

    If you try to add synchronized lyrics at the same time as you added the
    static lyrics, neither will display when you play the song.

    One interesting thing that happened while I was fiddling around with this
    trying to get the static lyrics fixed. A couple songs I added static lyrics
    multiple times to the same song. For example, change 1:"Testing just testing"
    and then change 2: a couple lines of the real lyrics, but when I played the
    song only "Testing just testing" would display, but when I deleted that via
    my solution 2 and played the song again, it displayed change 2. So maybe the
    info we inputted is there... somewhere. In the abyss?
