How many times have you been in a restaurant or bar where a song starts playing and you just can’t remember who is singing or the name of the song? Or maybe there’s a new song you’ve never heard and you want to listen to it again later. It used to be that, short of humming the tune to a musically inclined friend, you were out of luck. But now it’s easy to identify pretty much any popular piece of recorded music instantly with Shazam.

Shazam works like magic. Available as an app on every major mobile platform, Shazam has a massive catalogue of music that it can match to whatever sounds are coming through the airwaves at the moment. Simply open the app, and hit the giant S icon to “Shazam,” then hold your phone in the general direction of the music. The app “listens” through your device’s microphone and in seconds it will likely tell you the artist and song title, with options to listen to a sample, buy the song, and even see real-time lyrics as the song continues playing. It’s an amazing experience and invaluable to anyone that loves discovering new music or rediscovering old favorites.
