    This will open up a dialogue box where you can select any combination of relevant filters for your search e.g. Mood, Lyrics

    In the screenshot example, we have searched by Mood and Lyrics with the word "happy", then added "cheerful" as a Mood, and "friends" as a Keyword.



    When you find a song, you can add it to a Playlist by clicking +PLAYLIST, or License it directly from the Search.
