[lyrics artist="Guns N Roses" song="Welcome to the Jungle"]
Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N RosesWelcome to the jungle
We got fun 'n' games
We got evrything you want
Honey we know the names
We are the people that can find
Whatever you may need

If you got the money honey

We got your disease

Chorus:

In the jungle

Welcome to the jungle

Watch it bring you to your knees, knees

I wanna watch you bleed

Welcome to the jungle

We take it day by day

If you want it you're gonna bleed

But it's the price you pay

And you're a very sexy girl

That's very hard to please

You can taste the bright lights

But you won't get them for free

In the jungle

Welcome to the jungle

Feel my, my serpentine

I, I wanna hear yous-cream

Welcome to the jungle

It gets worse here everyday

Ya learn ta live like an animal

In the jungle where we play

If you got a hunger for what you see

You'll take it eventually

You can have anything you want

But you better not take it from me

Chorus

And when you're high you never

Ever want to come down, YEAH!

You know where you are

You're in the jungle baby

You're gonna die

In the jungle

Welcome to the jungle

Watch it bring you to your knees, knees

In the jungle

Welcome to the jungle

Feel my, my serpentine

In the jungle

Welcome to the jungle

Watch it bring you to your knees, knees

In the jungle

Welcome to the jungle

Watch it bring you to your

It's gonna bring you down

Ha!

Installation

F13 Music can be installed via the Plugins section of WordPress. If you wish to download the source code, simply upload the code to the wp-content/plugins folder on your webserver, then visit the Plugins section of WordPress admin to activate the F13 Music.

Configuration

Configuration of F13 Music is by the form provided in your WordPress Admin area under the menu

"F13 Admin" >> "Music"

Here you will be able to add a Last.fm API key allowing certain features of the plugin to function.
Settings

  • Last.fm API Key: Provided by the Last.fm API
  • Cache timeout: Enter the time in minutes that you wish data to be cached for. A higher number will cache data for longer, reducing the number of API calls. A lower number will allow data to be updated more regularly at the cost of more API calls and fractionally slower page load times.

Obtain a Last.fm API key

  1. If you haven’t already got a Last.fm account, visit Last.fm and join.
  2. Visit Last.fm/api/account/create and fill in the form.
  3. Copy your Last.fm API key to the “F13 Admin >> Music” page in WordPress admin.

Linking Spotify to Last.fm

  1. Visit Last.fm/settings/applications
  2. Click the “Connect” button for the “Spotify Scrobbling” application. Please note “Spotify Playback is not required for music tracking.
