Just watched a tv show, looking for the music you just heard? Playing the radio, and didn't catch the DJ saying the title? On the go? In the woods? (Also)

Birdjam solves a problem that I didn't exactly know I had. Fascinating. Great post.

I think there may be an irony that you'll need this for MTV and VH1.

This is terrible. "Scrubs" and "Weeds" have already made me spend far too much money downloading great songs. Curse you.

Don't forget Tunefind, Song Title, or Ad Tunes.

I am always nothing short of amazed when Tunatic identifies a song...but unfortunately it is far from 100% reliable. Rarely gives a false answer, but often no answer at all. But my opinion is somewhat dated, maybe they have made improvements to the database.

There should be a site that lets one hum a few bars.

Apparently there is, longsleeves.

In the woods? Count me in.

And for the UK audience, Commerical Breaks and Beats may prove useful.

Is 411-Song a rebranding of good old Shazzam? (Which is spookily accurate in my experience.)
