This dataset provides a list of lyrics from 1950 to 2019 describing music metadata as sadness, danceability, loudness, acousticness, etc. We also provide some informations as lyrics which can be used to natural language processing. The audio data was scraped using Echo Nest® API integrated engine with spotipy Python’s package. The spotipy API permits the user to search for specific genres, artists,songs, release date, etc. To obtain the lyrics we used the Lyrics Genius® API as baseURL for requesting data based on the song title and artist name.
