Lyrics plugin should strip the title of round and square brackets if it cannot find the lyrics for the original title
Most songs' titles in Lyricswiki have this format: "Title" featuring Singer/Group, where featuring is not part of the song's title - it's just an extra informational suffix.
Meanwhile songs in anyone's collection are named either: "Title feat. Singer/Group" or "Title (feat. Singer/Group)", so the lyrics wiki plugin doesn't yield any results.
Please, make this plugin strip everything in brackets, e.g.
"This is a name of a song (feat. Some Singer) [Year 2013]" should be queried as "This is a name of a song".

An option could be added for this. It wouldn't do to make it the default behavior, though, since that would break song titles that legitimately contain parentheses.
