GoFish Technologies Launches World's First "Search-by-Lyrics" Tool

Naming That Tune Has Never Been Easier With GoFish Search-by-Lyrics™

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 22, 2005 -- GoFish Technologies, a leader in multimedia search, today announced the availability of GoFish Search-by-Lyrics™, the world's first search engine tool for discovering and purchasing music by simply typing in the lyrics. With GoFish Search-by-Lyrics, online music enthusiasts can now easily search for music by simply typing three or four words of a song's lyrics and have targeted results returned to them. They can then listen to thirty-second audio clips, review artist information, see album art, and purchase songs with just two clicks.

"The Search-by-Lyrics function solves the eternal conundrum encountered by millions of innocent people who wake up in the morning humming three to four words of a seemingly un-recognizable and unidentifiable song," said Michael Downing, co-founder and CEO of GoFish Technologies, Inc. "GoFish Search-by-Lyrics is an important next-step in delivering meaningful search and discovery tools focused on the rapidly expanding universe of online multimedia. It will play an important role in guiding consumers to the content they want -- not to mention getting the answer to the nagging question of who sings that song."

The GoFish Search-by-Lyrics feature is just one in a string of technology innovations that GoFish Technologies has released since going live with their multimedia search platform in November 2004. In May 2005, GoFish announced the Global Playlist Publisher, the world's first freely available web-based tool for publishing music playlists from popular music media player applications such as Apple iTunes®, Windows Media Player®, MusicMatch®, Napster®, and Winamp®. Both products build on the GoFish platform of digital media search and discovery and are available now at
