Who sings that? Now you can always know with SHAZAM!

So I’m at a restaurant (or an airport, elevator, car, waiting room…you get the point) and a song comes on in the background, one of many to the ’soundtrack’ of my life. I love the beat..the lyrics are great, but I have no idea who it is? Have I heard this artist before, is this a new and upcoming artist? Well no more guessing for me!

I can now just ask Shazam, a great free music discovery engine app available for Android, BlackBerry, BREW, iPhone, J2ME, Symbian and Windows Phone.

I personally use it on my Iphone and it takes but 30 seconds for it to tag, analyze and verify a song. Once it does you will see the title of the song, artist, and album info. Depending on the album, you can get even more in depth information such as discography, reviews, tour info, and lyrics. On the IPhone version it gives me a button so I can connect straight to iTunes and purchase the song or album right then and there.

While Shazam is free, it is limited to five tags a month. However there is a paid version, Shazam Encore, without the ads and unlimited tagging for $2.99 a year or $4.99 for a lifetime subscription. Whether you get the free or paid, this app is sooo worth it and you will never leave yourself guessing again as well as discovering great music!
