“get ur freak on,” for example, provides a pretty good cross section of who owned the song and who heard it on the radio

I like a Heardle.
I feel I fail because I don't know any Ed Sheeran/ One Direction but there has been more older stuff recently.
Out of 105, I've got 32% in 1s, 10% in 2s, 13% on 3rd go, 7% on 4th go, 10% on 5th go, 8% on 6th go and 25% not gotten! That's pretty terrible.

Oh hang on - ones I didn't do, even before I discovered it, it counts as 'not getting'. I started on #8- Fleetwood Mac.

it doesn't count them as "not getting" but it breaks your streak, mine says 75/105 correct, 71.4% correct, 1:9 current:max streak (forgot it yesterday)

today I clicked play for my first go and got the full 16 seconds?! but when i clicked it again it was just one second, then seemed to work normally. still didn't get it...

seeing a lot of music people failing to get today's heardle. it's one of the biggest songs of the last five years, maybe the biggest! (though yes it is horrible) - not sure what this says about the position of mainstream pop.

I attempt it most days. I didn't get it today. (Wed.) Though I've almost certainly (half-)heard it. That's exactly the sort of vocal affectation that just gets me switching radio stations tbh.

A friend who instantly recognised it (but was unfamiliar with Chic and The Smiths last week, for instance) pointed out that they are virtually my neighbour. Which appears to be true. (Leaving me astonished that they're the sort of artist about which someone would casually learn that level of detail.)

it's the most shazammed song of all time!

the top three here are all nothing short of horrific

Blimey!

i figured it out once the horrible vocals started

it was thee biggest song of 2020 in my house (i know it's from 2019), so got it in 1 second. i still love it, 'horrible' vocals and all - sorry!

I've failed Thursday's too now. Not sure I've failed twice in row before lol. A completely different type of studiously ignored thing this time.

Nag! Nag! Nag!, Wednesday, 29 June 2022 14:11 (one month ago) link

i got it immediately as i usually do when i know the song at all. i'm pretty sure i shazammed the song back when it was first breaking, not because i liked it and was intrigued but because i wanted to know who on earth was responsible for this monstrosity (i've come to enjoy the song a little more now, mostly b/c i find it funny somehow)

seeing a lot of music people failing to get today's heardle. it's one of the biggest songs of the last five years, maybe the biggest! (though yes it is horrible) - not sure what this says about the position of mainstream pop.

in the us at least, it was undeniably a runaway streaming smash that young ppl would play at parties and such but it was obviously very polarizing to the older crowds, so while radio acknowledged it, they didn't keep it around as long or take it as high as they would have a comparably reactive song by a more down-the-middle act like maroon 5. by and large radio is what ratifies the most omnipresent of hits in america now, and what they play is also largely what you'll also hear as far as current music on tv commercials, at sports stadiums and the like as well. there are a lot of big hits in america now that plenty of older folks, even music-loving ones, won't be familiar with unless they put an active effort into keeping up with what the youngns like

I entered "monkey" and the song didn't come up in the options :(

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Wednesday, 29 June 2022 16:34 (one month ago) link

in the uk it was on radio on heavy rotation for months and months.

It spent something like 3 months at #1 in the UK

loathe the song but got in 1

yeah, not good news for people who don't use Spotify, for example me

It sounds like they're keeping it publicly accessible, fwiw(?)

swift action, great stuff 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

(the good news is that the decade-specific Heardles above are still accessible, at least where I am. for now)

The other day I discovered there are two 90s heardles, one at glitch.me and one at heardledecades.com - I've been using the former.

dear confusion the catastrophe waitress (ledge), Wednesday, 13 July 2022 13:57 (four weeks ago) link

yep, and glitch.me also has a 00s one - as well as (some? many?) artist-specific ones. I mean… https://littlemix-heardle.glitch.me/

They've only gone and ruined the UI. You used to be able to press skip while it was playing, so you didn't have to hear the first bits over and over again. Now pressing skip stops playback and sends it back to the beginning.

You can't see the historical stats for each track any more either, which was one of the most interesting bits for me.

Sudden Birdnet Thus (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 15 July 2022 08:37 (three weeks ago) link

^Arrrrrgh! I had been enjoying that since you pointed it out here.

They changed it back. Someone there must read ilx, there's no other explanation. Hey! How about you bring back full screen album cover view?

lol
