    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

    Shazam is what you're looking for.

    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.
