A Cool Way To Identify Song Name From Tune Using PC Online

Few days back I heard a famous soundtrack while watching a Korean drama. I heard it before, but I didn't know the soundtrack name. I liked it so much that I thought this time I needed to find the track name and listened to the whole music. So I started looking for online music identifier. Top search results returned mainly IOS or Android apps. There were some services also that can be used in PC, but you need to sing the song or hum the tune in microphone to match the results with their online music databases. I am a terrible singer. And I didn't want to go through the trouble of configuring stereo mix to put music from my computer to microphone. So I was looking for a online music community where I can upload part of a song or tune and somebody can identify it. And I wanted a community that is active enough to get a quick response. Looks like WatZatSong is just like that.

I registered and uploaded the mp3 tune and it was identified within 15 minutes. The tune was a famous one Chariots Of Fire by Vangelis. So it may have been identified quickly. But I checked the community. Looks like they have enough active users who are willing to listen to tunes uploaded by other users and identify them. If the song you are looking for is kind of well-known, you can expect somewhat quick response. So if you are trying to find the original song or music name by a partial tune that you have got from some other medium like tv series or movie or advertisement, you can try this service.
