Name My Tune (http://www.namemytune.com) allows people to find the name of a song by singing or humming the tune in their computer's microphone. Last Thursday Netscape featured Name My Tune as its Cool Site of the Day.

Strongtooth, Inc. has now launched the beta version of the Name My Tune song recognition service on http://www.namemytune.com. Soon after launch, Netscape featured it as its Cool Site of the Day. Name My Tune is the first of its kind and allows music fans and consumers to quickly and easily find the name of a song by simply humming or singing the tune near a computer. This patent-pending service is a breakthrough for frustrated visitors to regular and online music stores who’ve been previously unable to find the tracks or albums they’re looking for because they didn't know the name.

“Similar services offer consumers the ability to have a song recognized if they are listening to the actual music, but Name My Tune takes the concept one step further,” says Brooke Furst Kaye, Co-Founder of Name My Tune. “It's also free, unlike other services.”

Anyone with a microphone attached to their computer can go to http://www.namemytune.com, sing or hum a 10-second segment of the song they’re looking for into the microphone, and receive the name of the song and the recording artist nearly instantaneously via email. The user can then purchase the tracks or albums from online music stores if so desired.

How It Works: The hummed or sung clips are anonymously distributed around the globe to people most likely to recognize the tune based on the genre and era that the song is thought to fit in. Visitors to http://www.namemytune.com can also listen to other peoples' anonymous song clips and help them find what they’re looking for by anonymously entering their best guess for the song title and/or recording artist.
