When you Search or Browse the Warner/Chappell on-line database for titles and writers, you will be accessing information about the best, most popular and most significant songs and writers in our catalog. If there is something specific that you are hoping to find and if you are unable to find it when you search, it is possible that the particular song or composition you want is unavailable via an on-line search at this time. Another reason could be that you have used a search criterion that is too narrow to obtain the exact match you had hoped to find. Try the following suggestions, keeping this age-old wisdom in mind: If at first you don't succeed...try altering the search criteria.
You'll notice that the drop-down menu under Source lists several countries. This is an innovative feature that offers you an opportunity to do a search that is truly global in scope and, in keeping with our primary goal, enables you to do business on a level that is unprecedented in the online music publishing universe.

As more of our affiliates make their catalogs available, you will discover a genuine, international resource of voices and sounds that you may tap as easily as you can our American offerings in order to enhance your choices and create a rich cultural mix of influences that will add distinction and authenticity to any project you envision.
Projects are folders that help to keep your song selections organized into logical groups. When you select a song from Warner/Chappell's Online Library you can then save that selection to a project folder.
