Find Songs Stuck in Your Head With Midomi.com

Website of the Day: Midomi.com

I hate having a song stuck in my head and having absolutely no way to figure out what it is. My tone-deaf humming to friends generally just makes me look and feel crazy. And if you can't think of the lyrics, it's not like there's a Google search to help you. With midomi, all you have to do is hum or sing the part of the song that you do know and the site records you, and then turns up matches (which can be hit or miss, but that might be due to my, ahem, not-quite-so-lovely singing voice). Even funnier, it'll let you listen to the parts of the matched song from other users.

But honestly, is there anything more satisfying than figuring out the song that has been plaguing you — without turning up blank looks from all your friends? You catch my drift. To learn how to post your favorite websites to our Website of the Day group,

.

I know that this long list looks scary, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it'll be a snap the second time around.

So join the Website of the Day group and share information about all your favorite sites! Yours just might end up on the geeksugar homepage!

Wicked cool. I don't have for my computer but if I did I'd use this all the time. :)

s0sarasaid--It works best if you're in a quiet room (but don't let it stop you from experimenting at parties :)). If that doesn't help, it's possible the song hasn't been added by another user to the database yet (all the songs are contributed by users). Good luck!

Wow, that's a really neat tool. I tried 5 songs, and it recognized them dead-on, the first try! In terms of my singing voice, I do have some experience and stuff from choir and whatnot, but overall, I'm just able to carry a tune and hit notes properly - so I think it's pretty nifty.

I tried it, but it didn't seem to work too well. I can't be thaaaaat bad of a singer, can I? I even played the song with my singing and it didn't recognize it. Maybe I should've picked something a little less obscure than The Gin Blossoms. ;)

That's a cool idea that you can sing to make the system recognize it =)
