How to search for a song without knowing the name or the lyrics
Finding a song without knowing the name or the lyrics is much easier than you thought. There are many methods you can use to do this, but in this article, I have used only some of the best methods.
How to search for a song without knowing the name or lyrics using Shazam
In my opinion, Shazam is the most popular song recognition app in the world. Over the years, more than a million people around the world have used Shazam to identify songs they have no idea about.
Initially, Shazam started out as a music identification app only but over the years, it has now turned into a platform for both musicians and listeners. The Shazam app is available as a free download from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
To use Shazam to find a song, all you need to do is get a pre-recorded version of the song on another mobile phone or computer. After that, follow the steps below;
- Download the Shazam app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store
- Open the app and point your phone’s microphone at the other device with the previously recorded song
- Play the pre-recorded version of the song
- Wait for Shazam to work on its algorithm and within a few minutes, the song title will be displayed on the screen
This method will only work for pre-recorded songs or the original song. It doesn’t work when you sing or humm the song into the microphone. Also, Shazam can identify almost every song in the world.
How to search for a song without knowing the name or lyrics using Midomi (music search engine)
Unlike Shazam where you have to get the recorded song before it can recognize the song, Midomi doesn’t work that way.
It should be noted that it is not always that you will be able to find the recorded song and in such situations your best chance is to sing or devour them. This is why you are Midomi.
Midomi is a music search engine that allows you to search for a song using voice input. Currently, Midomi can only be used on the web and it is Free For shipping.
To use Midomi, all you have to do is visit the official Midomi website and follow the simple steps on the screen. The song should be singing or humming for at least 10 seconds (this will increase the accuracy).
Then, Midomi will compare the buzz or the song to the big music database. After a few seconds, all the music that matches your song will be listed for you.
The steps to follow are very simple and straightforward. No matter what level of computer literacy you have, you will be able to do this.
Aside from Shazam and Midomi, there are some other tools that you can use to find a song without knowing the name or the lyrics. You can try the following:
- MusicID (Free Music Finder App)
- Musicpedia (open music encyclopedia)
- WhatZatSong.com (community site for identifying music)
The five (5) tools / apps presented to you in this article are supposed to help you find any song without knowing the name or the lyrics. Interestingly, aside from Shazam, all of the other tools / apps given to you can be used for free.
