Any reliable online services similar to iPhone's Shazam application?

Asked by fred_in_london (22 points ) May 26th, 2009

Anyone able to recommend any reliable online services similar to iPhone’s Shazam application? – A while back I downloaded a (free, legal) mp3 of a song which I like very much and would like to buy the album it came from. Trouble is, I changed the original file name in error (when shortening a batch of mp3 file names for easy reading in mp3 player’s small view window) – basically, assigned it the name of another mp3 track. I can’t remember the artist’s name, the song title – or which unsigned indie music blog I downloaded it from. No-one I’ve played the track to has been able to identify it. Guess I could always stop a stranger in the street and ask to use his or her iPhone’s Shazam…

Have you tried searching the lyrics?

Yes, I’ve tried a web search using many phrases from the lyrics. No luck there!

Try Midomi. It might not be as reliable as Shazam, but it should still work. And you can use your own voice to identify, if you so choose.
