What song was that? Did you listen to that song at the coffee shop or while shopping at the mall and wanted to look up the song but couldn't figure out the lyrics? Even if you can google a few words of the lyrics and find the song, what if there was an easier way?

A few days back I was watching a Zumba video on youtube by Tanory Ateek and I really liked the music and Tanory was an awesome instructor. I wanted to get the song. But the problem was I couldn't figure out the lyrics at all. I at least knew that it wasn't an English song. I also got to know Google Now (Ok Google) started a music recognition service. But it was for English only and I couldn't find it. Google now didn't help me.

I started searching for some other apps which could better recognize the music and it should also provide support for non-English songs. Then I came across this app named SoundHound.




SoundHound was the perfect app for the job. Not only did it recognize the song, but it also spotted on the tune it was remixed with.

The song was "Baba to ki hasti" by Barobax which is my new favorite. It's in the Persian language and there was no way I could have picked the song words.





I also tried if SoundHound could recognize the classic compositions like Fur Elise and a few Bollywood songs. It didn't fail to impress me. SoundHound worked like a charm.

You can also use this app to discover new songs and collect your favorite albums. The app uses AI - deep learning (deep neural networks) for training, recognition, and discovery of songs.

Head over to Google Play Store and Apple App Store to download the app.

Let me know which song did you recognized using this app? Have you tried other apps like this? If yes how was the experience?
