Find a song when you only know the tune

Finding a song when you know the lyrics or bits of the lyrics is easy. You just google it! What if you only know the tune , though? Technology has come a long way and is so helpful now. I had this tune playing in my head and couldn’t for the life of me identify it. I worked out it was a Mum song because she gave me so much in terms of musical and film knowledge form her era. As it turns out it is the theme from Moulin Rouge by Mantovani or Percy Faith both of whom she listened to a lot along with jazz and big band music.

I succeeded by using Midomi. So easy. I just hummed my tune into the microphone and Midomi found it. I could then look it up on YouTube. I tried Soundhound which is a very good app but it didn’t recognise my tune. Midomi needs flash to work so it doesn’t work on an iPad. Shazam works if you have a recorded version of the tune. You can also try Siri or Google sound search but these 3 apps are pretty impressive and we are no longer left to wonder.

I thank my mother for continuing to teach me about music appreciation. Her legacy lives in in the technology age.
