How to Identify an Unknown Song: Methods and Tools

If you’re trying to identify a song that you’re hearing but don’t know the title or artist, there are several ways to find out:

  1. Use a music recognition app: There are several apps that can help you identify a song by listening to it. Some popular examples include Shazam, SoundHound, and Musixmatch. Simply open the app, tap the button to start listening, and hold your device near the source of the music. The app will then match the song to its database and display the title and artist.
  2. Search online: If you can remember a few lyrics or the melody of the song, you can search for it on Google or any search engine. Try typing in some of the lyrics or humming the melody, and the search engine will display relevant results.
  3. Ask someone else: If you’re with friends or family, ask them if they know the song. Someone might recognize it and be able to tell you the title and artist.
  4. Check music streaming services: If you have a music streaming service such as Spotify or Apple Music, you can try searching for the song by lyrics or using a similar song as a reference. The service may also recommend similar songs based on your search.

I hope this helps you find the song you’re looking for!
