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. – ComputerLocus 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! – ComputerLocus Feb 14 '13 at 3:22
