Let's just call this issue resolved. Based on everyone's comments, I am going to give Shazam and SoundHound a try. Thank you for providing such links. Michael6386 wrote: Excellent points, everyone. The right-click menu also offers you options for finding the artist on Discogs and Wikipedia or search for the Facebook fan page, which helps you quickly find out more about the song author and discover the entire discography.

You can also play an audio clip to your microphone to recognize the song. My name is Aseem Kishore and I am a full-time professional blogger. It also has a bunch of other features like real-time lyrics and the ability to watch music videos for the songs from YouTube. Choose the genre of the music and about how old it is and then type in your email address. Soundhound can help you with those songs that are on the tip of your tongue, or ear rather. It is basically used to search the matching music or artist. .
I still can't see any of the artwork. This would mean that musiXmatch has the ability to recognize a lot of songs. I am more concerned with the classical tracks. It appears to do exactly what your looking for. You need either a smart phone such as Iphone, Android, Windows Phone or Blackberry to download the app. I am more concerned with the classical tracks. You will run into many sites that will say that they can identify songs … Shazam is a mobile phone app for identifying music being played in the surroundings.
It doesn't need Itunes or Windows Media player to play. Shazam finds tracks faster and find more obscure tracks not just classical where SoundHound does not. That you need an account should be obvious, considering you can upload your own files and write comments. Can save you years of time to identify each song. After you are done uploading the file, you need to prove you are human and then AudioTag compares your audio file to its database and identifies the song. AudioTag suggests you choose an audio clip with 15-45 seconds duration.
SoundHound is another app for all smartphone platforms that is pretty similar to Shazam, but also has the additional option of listening to you sing a song or hum. It is a no brainer to use Shazam. Gabriel - I have not listened to radio, of any form, in about 10 years. With a single click, you can search for it on YouTube, find remixes on SoundCloud or search for the song lyrics. This is a huge thing to not have right.
But they are not what I expected. It would be nice if they just had a web version of the software, which the site says they are working on, but that may never happen. Right now middle C is just D but slightly lower. All you need to do is sing or hum into the microphone and the service returns information about the song. Online music identification services though not as convenient as music identification apps, are quite functional nonetheless.
Update: We ran a road test of the best of these apps in various New York City venues. Basically, you upload your singing or humming or music portion and people on the Internet will try to help you identify it. I still have to go through each track to determine if I want to keep it. Just click on Find the name of a song and allow access to your microphone. Without this service, users have to enter the titles manually for every track in the album.
The other interesting site I found was. Midomi will let you sing or hum a tune to identify a song, so if you like singing to yourself all the time, this will be perfect for you. The software does take a bit of time, but seems to work. I reviewed TuneUp and it is solely for iTunes and Windows Media Player. Of anyone can help me find the singer or the name of this song is so awesome.
So it looks like your singing ability will affect your results. Fast, no frills and easy to use since there is no need to install any third party application for midomi to work other than Flash Player. Gracenote database is like a fingerprint database with tens of millions of songs fingerprinted based on their audio, not their music tags and it knows the correct tags for each fingerprint. Free, Android Spotsearch is heavily integrated with Spotify, hence the name. It uses the microphone of a mobile phone to sample the music being played nearby. My wife passed by and sang three songs and Midomi identified all three.
