Many times it happens to all of us that we can remember a song but not it’s name, or even lyrics. In that moment we would give anything to find that song name and listen it one more time.
In this article I will show you some of the best options to find the song you barely remember.
Use Your SmartPhone to Find the Music
I would recommend you to try the Shazam app for iOS, Android, BlackBerry or Windows Phone.
With Shazam app you can find the song if you can hear it somewhere, like radio and you cannot remember it’s name. While the music is playing you can open the app and approache the phone to the source where the music is playing.
The Shazam app will help you find the name of the currently playing song, or it will give you some of the names that could be.
MusicID is another app that can tell you the currently playing song anem. The app costs 3$ for iPhone. It works just like Shazam app.
Find a Song Name Using Your Own Voice
Yes, you can really find a song by using your own voice, what you have to do is to grab a microphone and with your voice to sing or to hum the song you are searching.
Midomi is an app that will listen to your voice and will identify the song name. You will have to sing or hum the song for about 10 seconds, and Midomi will show you a list of matching songs.
You can use Midomi online for free, but the apps for your mobile devices are not for free.
Midomi is free to use online, but it also offers mobile apps for iPhone, Android, Nokia Ovi and Windows Mobile phones. You can identify songs by holding your phone up to a speaker or by singing / humming the melody into the phone itself.
