Hello, as of last year I switched to Linux and thus having installed
Suse pro 9.3, I was introduced to your Amarok.
I would like to say first of all, well done, its an amazing program,
which looks great, works flawlessly and has some truly amazing

As you allow the user to find the lyrics of the song, why not take it
one step further why don't you add a section called upcoming concerts
and display on the users screen future concerts a certain band will be

On top of that, why not make it the Linux Itunes, where you can buy

users and extra cash flow to amarok developers, what do you say?

Also, could you improve the lyric search slightly. Basically I have a
deep purple song named Burn, but it says the artist is Dio. Could you
in the lyric search change the artist and song name?
