I hate it when I get a song stuck in my head and I can’t even remember the name of the song?

I want a search engine that searches for songs. But I don’t want to search by name or artist. I want to be able to hum a melody and have a search engine find songs that are similar.

Wow. There’s a site that does this already according to the link below.
(I promise you I don’t just search for odd things and then write about them. I really have wanted this for quite some time and just got around to writing about it today.)
It just goes to show you that “there’s nothing new under the sun.”


The site is: http://hsearch.nayio.com/ I’m going to try it now.

UPDATE: Sadly, it seems to be unavailable. The site loads. It even will record and play back my audio input, but just gives an odd error when I try to search. There’s no way for me to even debug it since it’s an activeX control :(.

Maybe they fell prey to one of my reasons it wouldn’t work. That the RIAA would come after them for recording their users trying to sound like other songs. They would probably need to pay royalties :).
