    Is there an app that will listen to a song and then tell you the name of it? I've seen one for the iPhone but was hoping there was an Android one too.

    thx

    I didn't make it in time to help, but it is Shazam you're looking for, and I will say, it's one of my favorite apps. I really wish I knew how it all works.

    Basically a song has many subtle nuances that to a computer, makes each song extremely unique. Shazam analyzes the sound waves, takes a 'fingerprint' of the song, compares it to their ever growing database and tells you what it matches.

    From the wiki:
    "The "acoustic fingerprints" used by Shazam are based on spectrograms that have been generalized to a group of peak intensity frequencies. Pairs of these peak values are compared against the main database to locate matching songs.[1] The service does work with classical music although results are sometimes a little patchy, because classical music can be played differently by many different orchestras."

    I've been looking for something like this - so glad I ran across this thread. I love it! I'm amazed at the obscure songs it will recognize.

    +1. I just thought I liked Shazam. You can sing or hum a song and SoundHound will recognize it.
