Is making a blogpost with a list with music tips harmful (spammy)?

Hello,


I want to make a blogpost with a list of 400+ spiritual songs, but that will be 10.000 words (!)

Also, I want to make a blogpost with a list of 1.000 plus happy songs, but that will be 20.000 + words.

You can see a bit of the text in the image.

Will Google see this as spammy and therefore penalize my complete website?

The intensions are good however: just sharing music tips...

Thanks in advance!

      Because Google might see it as copy&pasting randomly some songnames as 'popular keywords', and because the word 'classical' appears approxmiately 100 times after 'genre'

      Is my guess / concern.

    Google won't care.

    There are tons of lists like that on the internet.

    There are tons of lyric sites....but google has changed drastically in that niche.

    I assume because they should get in on the action. That is, why not come up with their own database of lyrics?

    So now, when searching for lyrics on google, you most likely will get google's and not even need to visit any website.

      That's not usually the case.

      Search for song lyrics and you'll usually find Google SERPs doesn't show the entire lyrics, so, the only choice traffic has is to click through to another web page to get the full lyrics.

      Example: aerosmith livin on the edge lyrics

      Also, Google Search only list lyrics from songs on Google Play which is usually limited to big band names. Do the search below and Google doesn't return any lyrics on the SERPs.

      Example: acid king 2 wheel nation lyrics

      OP will also pick up a bazillion longtail keywords because most folks will not search for the entire song name or know who wrote the song (keyword). A lot of folks search for partial lyrics, words that stick in their head when they hear the song.

      Example, search for a partial lyrics of the Aerosmith song (first link above), Google SERPs shows a partial lyric directly on the SERPs for the band name and song title but they don't show any lyrics for a partial lyric search. The SERPs still show a bunch of relevant lyric pages from other domains (not Google Play).

      ...and that search above is even a direct copy/paste from the lyrics shown directly on Google SERPs.

    I don't think if Google will consider it Spammy trick. I would second to many of the answers by saying that there are number of sites that have same kind of lists. How come, would you change the name of a song?

    So I think keeping it natural won't annoy Google at any stage.
