Impediment To Productivity: Find That Song.

This is silly, fascinating but silly.

Do you ever have the annoying situation where there is a song stuck in your head, and you don’t know the name of it? With luck, and with your help, The Song Tapper will try to solve this problem! You search for music, by tapping the rhythm of the song’s melody.

Load up our search screen, and try tapping the rhythm of the song on your space bar while humming the tune. That’s it! From that rhythm, The Song Tapper consults its ever growing database of songs and attempts to determine the correct one, showing you a list of the most likely songs. If you know the song, and The Song Tapper does not choose the correct one, you have the option of teaching The Song Tapper the song title and artist name.

So does it work. Well I sat there and tapped in “Happy Together” by The Turtles and the program listed it as the third option.

As I said silly but oh so weirdly fascinating.
