TRW link: Musipedia

Ever had a tune stuck in your head, but you just can’t remember the title, who sang it, or even any of the lyrics? Rather than go insane trying to figure out where your stray song came from, try looking it up at Musipedia. Musipedia is an online, Wikipedia-like service that helps users find song titles and artists using what they can remember of the tune. If you’re at all musically inclined, you can choose to enter the tune by playing a Flash-based piano keyboard. You can also whistle or hum the tune into a microphone, or even tap out a rhythm. It’s pretty good – I tried it with several songs, including the first few notes of the worst earworm of all, Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up, and it got them all.
