I Know That Song

Guess the song resultsWhat’s That Song?

Turn up the sound, identify the music, pick the right track.

A cool game where you have to guess 10 artist’s songs from 30 second clips. It appears they use Amazon.com APIs to implement it. Nice. You can enter any artist in the upper-right of the page.

  1. Of course I tested my peter gabriel knowledge — and got 9 out of 10. The one I got wrong was either “In Doubt” or “Of These, Hope,” from PG’s Passion, and I think those two tracks are atually mixed together on the album, so that doesn’t count.

    I wonder who else I could try.

  2. I wonder if it chooses the songs randomly. I knew the song that played was from Passion, but so many of those song sound alike, and to pick between “Of These, Hope” and “In Doubt”? Unless you’d recently listened closely to the (entirely instrumental) album, and read each track title as it played, that’s a pretty damn tough call I had to make.

    I tried Townes Van Zandt, but it took too long to play each song as I lost patience… Maybe some day we’ll able to play the “Phillip Cairns” edition of the game. In about a million years.

  3. I did the peter gabreil test again and got 10/10. It was a different set of songs this time. An improvement on the game would be to time you: My average was 2 seconds (according to my observations).

  4. I may take a look at the page’s source and try to figure out how he did the test, maybe do something similar for SWT. Or we could even use our own MP3s. Hmmmm….
