Tracking Song Titles
By SUZANNE BARLYN
October 31, 2007; Page D1
Problem: You don't know the title of a song you heard on the radio.

Solution: If your radio doesn't display song titles, try to remember some
lyrics, which may help you find the title online. Enter the words you know
into a lyrics database, such as the one at Yahoo! Music
(http://music.yahoo.com/lyrics1) or FindMeATune.com
(http://findmeatune.com2), which may generate the title. You can also look
up the radio station's playlist on its Web site; check for the time of day
you heard the song or the "now playing" category if you're listening in real
time. If that doesn't work, post what you remember in a lyrics forum, such
as "Identify it" at All The Lyrics.com
(http://www.allthelyrics.com/forum/identify-it/3) and wait for another
user's response. Or download Tunatic, free music-identification software
(http://www.wildbits.com/tunatic/4), and run it while you listen to the
radio at work or home. It tries to determine song titles by comparing the
tunes with thousands in its database (you need to plug your sound source
into your computer).
