No. 0029 - Google Chorus

Most typical way to search for a song that you don't know: remember one line of the song (ideally the chorus) and then Google it. The chances are you will find it. However, tonight as Roseanne and I were pulling up to TGIFridays, we came across a song on the radio that has caught my attention for the last few weeks. It was a punk song with a girl lead singer. The beat is pretty rocking but I have no clue or way to find out who that was or what the song's name was. I tried to listen for a phrase or something in the chorus but it was already towards the end of the song. All I have left in my head is the tune of the chorus. It goes a little something like this "do do . . .do do do do do . . . .dodo . . .do do do do dodo". That's all I got. So now I'm got a song in my head (more or less just the chorus line) stuck on replay. I may or may not ever will find out who this band was or the name of the song. In fact, I'm pretty much at the mercy of the radio station to play that song again. Now I'm a major advocate of Google; you can Google just about everything. But how about this, a Google Chorus search. All you need is a microphone and the search engine. So in my situation, I would go to Google Chorus, hook up my mic and "do do do" away. Now I must admit all my other invention ideas are often time stupid and impossible, but this one you must agree might actually be doable.

Oh, Patrick, I was getting impatient for you to post again. You are very right- there is a real need for that, and since a lot of computers have built in microphones, I think the time has come. FYI- I've had this problem many a time and what has helped me is looking at the radio station's playlist. A lot of stations post what songs they play, some even list what time they played what, so you might be able to search for it that way.

Hey thanks Hilary. I'll definitely check that out. All I remembered is that the song has the word "break" in it or something like that. Hopefully this will work out.

I think google chorus would need Karaoke Revolution as a filter program to make sure the user can "do do do" to the proper beat and tune
