We all have been there, haven’t we? You’re in the middle of doing your household chores and you suddenly catch yourself humming a tune that you’re not even able to recognise. Happens to the best of us, doesn’t it? Situations like such are increasingly becoming common these days, as the music industry is becoming more and more inclusive of cross-culture songs. So there are high chances of you stumbling upon a song which impresses you with its beats and tune, but you’re unable to add it to your playlist because it’s in an unfamiliar language. Hence, we are here to assist you in your quest of locating that song and keeping your playlist up-to-date. Here is how you can find a song’s name without knowing the lyrics.
Finding Songs Through Mobile Apps
Google App for Android Users
If you’re an Android user, then you can try using the Google app to find the song you don’t know the name, lyrics or the singer of. All you have to do is just ask your Google Assistant “what song is this?” while it is being played in the background. The Google Assistant will automatically detect the song and give you all its details.
Siri for iPhone Users
If you are an iPhone or an iOS device user, you can take help from Siri like the way with Google Assistant. Just say “Hey Siri” to activate Siri on your iOS device and ask “what song is this?”, while playing the song in the background. Siri will recognise the song and provide you with a link to purchase it on iTunes.

In case you don’t even have a recording of the song, you can still find it, and that too merely by humming! You can use the SoundHound app for the same. All you have to do is just hum the song after pressing the orange button within the app and it takes care of the rest! It will automatically recognise the song and tell you its details.
In case none of the above options works out for you, you can try downloading the Shazam app from the Play Store or App Store. It is compatible not only with iPhones and Android devices but with Windows devices as well.
Finding Songs Through Websites
You don’t have to necessarily download apps just for finding the name of a particular song that might be stuck in your head. There are plenty of websites which you can access directly via your browser for the same purpose. Below are mentioned some popular ones which you can try out:
Midomi is one such website which can help you recognize a song if you play it into the microphone of your PC or mobile device. The site also provides you with the option to find a song by singing or humming in case you don’t have a recording of it. Interestingly, Midomi is also powered by SoundHound.
Lastly, if no automated way is helping you out in your quest, you can take help from online public forums like those on Reddit. For example, you can ask Reddit communities like r/OnTheTipOfMyTounge to help you find the song, by providing whatever details you have about it from your side.
In this way, you can find the name of any song without even knowing its lyrics, album or singer. We are confident that at least one of the above sources will prove useful and ease your frustration. And if you’re successful in discovering the song, do share it with us in the comments section below. We would be absolutely delighted to hear your favourite tunes.
