A while ago I found a website that allowed you to enter a word, sentence, etc... and then it would generate a sound clip that used various lines from songs to essentially say out those words. It was a very interesting web app and I have had little luck finding it in Google again.

While I think this question is out of the scope of Webapps, the tool sounded interesting so I did some research.

Is "Let them sing it for you" the tool you're looking for?

Looks like the original creator has stopped hosting the project:

For unknown reasons the Swedish National Radio decided not to host the project anymore in late 2011. Hopefully it will be up soon again.

There is a Chrome Extension that still lets you do this however. I will not put the link here because you should always be wary of installing extensions from untrusted authors. But if you want to investigate and give it a try, search for "Let them sing it for you" in the Chrome store under "Extensions"

Yes, this is it! Just wondering what you actually had to search to find this. My search results were not turning up anything. –  Fogest Feb 14 '13 at 0:34

I searched for type your sentence in song lyrics and the top hit was a Reddit thread about this tool :) - that was my ~7th try at searching...it was definitely hard to narrow it down to find a usable result –  OnenOnlyWalter Feb 14 '13 at 0:48
    
Okay, awesome! I tried out the chrome extension and it works just like the old web app I remember! –  Fogest Feb 14 '13 at 3:22
