What Song Is This?

Music can motivate, inspire, and even change a person’s mood. This is a helpful tool to use when trying to accomplish a personal or business goal. The only caveat to those magical melodies is not knowing the title of a song that you’ve come to love.

You know the feeling. You’re in the car, out on the street, or in a bar or lounge and that song comes on again. You really like it, and you want to stream it to all your devices, but you don’t know the title of the song or the singer.

Sure you could ask a stranger or one of your friends if they’re with you, but then you’re going to feel like an outcast. How could you not know who sings this? Don’t worry, you won’t ever have to deal with that feeling.

Below are 6 different ways to help you “name that tune”.

Google Play’s “What’s This Song?”

According to this article from The Verge, as well as other publications, ”
Google Assistant can now identify what songs are playing around you, in an update that came today to all devices that have Google Assistant.”

Here’s how it works; “After summoning Google Assistant, you can ask “what song is this?” or “what song is playing?,” and the Assistant will pull up a card for you with the name of the song, the artist, lyrics, and YouTube, Google Play Music (of course), and Spotify streaming links. “

Siri and Google

This one is pretty simple. By simply saying “hey Siri or Ok Google” into your respective devices, you can then ask the artificial intelligence questions like, “what the song that goes…”. Now sing a few of the lyrics and the artificial assistant should have an answer for you.

Alexa, Google Home

This is similar to the one above, but with a few more advantages. According to this article from Billboard, “Alexa and Google Home can listen to you sing or hum a song, and they should even begin to play it. You can also ask Alexa or Google Home who performs whatever song it’s currently playing, and you can ask it to add that song to your library.”

If you know one of the artists, even better. You can ask for the song from [insert artist] and [another artist] and it should be enough to get you the result you’re looking for. The title of the song you like.


The tried and true original. If you’re always in front of a computer with your fingers on a keyboard, and you just want to know the title of a song, this might be the most preferred way to do so.

Just like anything else you’re looking for, Google will find the answers for you. Just type whatever you know about the song into Google and the title will most likely be at the top of your search results.

Now you know how to find the answer to the burning question, “what song is this?” Are you dying to try it out? Or did you already know all of this? Let us know. Reply in the comment box below.
