Tap It Out!

Have you ever come across a song that you absolutely loved at first listen, yet you didn't know the title, artist, and/or lyrics? Unless you have friends who can identify this mystery track through your off-key humming, it's fair to say that you're going to have to wait for another time to identify the song. Or do you?

There is an online program named Song Tapper that can identify your mystery track through the simple procedure of tapping the melody on the computer's spacebar. I spent a half-hour testing it out and found that it was right roughly 50% of the time, but those odds aren't too bad for rocking out the keyboard.

Song Tapper will usually produce ten guesses to what the song may be, so you can get a variety of interesting results. For instance, I typed in the melody to Nelly Furtado's "Promiscuous Girl" and ended up getting that track plus Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" and Slipknot's "Spit It Out".
