Spring has finally sprung, and although the birds might be up a little earlier than we’d like to be, they sure sound wonderful. Their songs got us thinking about new music – and helping you find new music. We frequently post playlists from class here or on Facebook. While there’s usually a mix of songs you’ll recognize, the playlists are also a great way to find new music.
If you’re like us, you remember setting your big brother’s tape recorder up in front of your radio to tape American Top 40 so you could see what new music you liked (or what everyone else liked) before heading to Strawberries Record & Tape to fork over your allowance for Shaun Cassidy’s latest (er, only) 8-track.
And if you know what the hell we’re talking about, you might not know about Shazam. No, it's not a goofy 80s TV show.
It’s an amazing app for your iPhone, iPad, or Android device that lets you figure out what that cool song you’re listening to is. You’re in Whole Foods. Or City Sports. Or your daughter’s room. You hear the song, you touch the Shazam button, and shazam! You’ve got the song name and artist (and a link to iTunes so you can add it to a playlist).
Not that we’ve done this, but don’t try humming or singing that catchy song tune while shazamming – we know you're pitch perfect, but Shazam isn’t quite that advanced.
