Cool script! An interesting alternative would be to find a site that offered lyrics in XML format and use XML::Simple to parse that. I don't know of any such sites, though.
Also, what do you do if the lyrics site doesn't have the song? Does WWW::Mechanize complain?
Here are a few pointers:
If you're going to do a substr() on a scalar and save the result into another scalar, you don't need to explicity copy the scalar first. You can just do:
my $firstletter = substr($artistsong,0,1);
Also, for translating something entirely to capitals, perl has a builtin:
$songtitle = uc $songtitle;
