The Music Box: Online Song Database

The Music Box is an songline song database containing individual pages for thousands of songs and & music artists (songwriters & performing artists). 

Use it to find:

  • the melody to a song. Listen to recordings of the song on each song page.  
  • the lyrics & chords to a song. If it's one of the 2400 songs in our 2 songbooks, it says where to find it. If not, it usually includes the lyrics & often the chords on the song page.
  • information on a song - who wrote it, who composed it, when it was written, what it's about, etc.
  • songs on a specific subject
  • a song you're trying to remember the name of
  • songs written or recorded by a given musician
  • information about a musician - website, Wiki page, YouTube channel, etc.
  • and lots more!

You can go also scroll song by song through the songs in the order they appear in any chapter of in Rise Up Singing or Rise Again.

SONG PAGES show you where to find the song in our songbooks, linked YouTube videos, links to song pages for the artist(s) who composed the song & recorded it, information on the song and more.
