This is about when you don't remember exactly if it's a lady or a woman or a queen or what word. How would you search only knowing that "it's someone who..." and the word might not be "someone"? By the way, it's easy for great celebre songs but in other cases, when searching other items not so mainstream, they'll never appear the first. Try shakespeare!!! If you only can tape "much....", do you have the title? Imagine a inner citation for a less known author.

A [square bracket] is used in text to indicate missing words or as a placeholder for the words that you are to insert. The author is not instructing you to use the square brackets when you do the Google search! "Dear [Madam or Sir], ..."
