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

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.

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?

one month passes...

(spoilers for the current one if you care)

i know the purchase was made a month and a half ago, but since the actual move to spotify.com this has felt annoyingly different.

the oldest song out the past 7 answers is from 2010. looking at the whole list of previous answers this is a clear shift. especially jeremy zucker/xxxtentacion/billie eilish three days in a row. i don't think i'm zoomer enough for this anymore.

spotify has ruined vanilla heardle to me, but luckily there are like a thousand bootleg heardles

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Sunday, 28 August 2022 06:08 (one year ago) link

I do 60s heardle, 70s heardle, lame 80s heardle (rip cool 80s heardle!), 90s heardle, us 90s heardle, 2000s heardle, bob dylan heardle, david bowie heardle, sparks heardle, weird al heardle (weirdle obv)... ya heardle... video game heardle...

I do all of those decade ones too btw (two 80s ones and two 90s ones)

my hit rate (in descending order):
80s (heardle80s)
80s (heardledecades)
70s / 60s (tie)
90s (heardledecades)
00s (glitch.me)
90s (glitch.me)

the glitch.me ones are much tougher

…and thanks to this I just found there is a 00s.heardledecades one now too, for which I now have a 1/1 100% score - straight in at number one baby! (oh dear, and *two* different glitch.me 80s ones I didn’t know about, one of which I can’t actually open)

I had a hot streak one day of getting all of the '60s-'00s and regular Heardle in one second each. Unlikely to ever repeat that feat, even if only because at least one of the songs is unavailable in my location pretty much every day (and, as noted, regular Heardle is all new stuff now and I am an old).

spotify heardle is just unspeakably bad. how the hell are they choosing these songs?

comedy khadafi (voodoo chili), Sunday, 28 August 2022 13:15 (one year ago) link

they also deleted all stats, offer a transfer at the old link, but every time you click it redirects to the new link

I wonder how far ahead the results are planned with for Heardle.

With Wordle, it's essentially been going through the same word list since day one, with an estimated end of October 2027. During weeks with harder words, some people would speculate that it was because of the New York Times buyout, but that appears to have not changed a thing as you can search up copies of the word list from back in January and see that's it's still on track.

Agreed. It's not fun any more.

kinder, Sunday, 28 August 2022 14:29 (one year ago) link

Spotify Heardle is still not available in my “location”, so 🤷🏻‍♂️

in other news, i frequently attempt the video game heardle and very rarely get it right (maybe like 4 times out of 30 or something lol). it’s fun to hear cool songs from games i’ve never even heard of

comedy khadafi (voodoo chili), Sunday, 28 August 2022 16:27 (one year ago) link

three weeks pass...

spotify heardle is a damn abomination

comedy khadafi (voodoo chili), Friday, 23 September 2022 11:44 (one year ago) link

the worst part is the days they actually do pick a song that isn't billie eilish, it's the most obvious shit in the world

, Saturday, 24 September 2022 08:29 (one year ago) link

yeah i mostly stopped playing after they acquired it lol, i did want it to become a little harder but when i do check in it seems like they seem to overwhelmingly do rock songs now? boring

dyl, Saturday, 24 September 2022 12:57 (one year ago) link

or songs that barely made the hot 100 but somehow have a billion streams

comedy khadafi (voodoo chili), Saturday, 24 September 2022 13:16 (one year ago) link

ime it's only been Billie Eilish once but Green Day at least 3 times if not 4

kinder, Saturday, 24 September 2022 17:57 (one year ago) link

i think the best use of heardle is a conversation starter for a group of "non musically worldly" friends to play the same edition, share the results, and see how well each other know the songs.

other uses include: nonrandom samples of zoomer music u dont know or care for
seeing whether u can identify famous older songs by their first second
as the above post mentions, 2 much green day

sometimes i do the vampire weekend heardle to make sure i can identify every song from their first 3 albums.

four months pass...

there are now Heardles for the 50s and 20s (both a bit crappy tho), a (solid) 10s one has been there for a while.

in related news, I had a full house today (informed guesswork, baby!) which I don’t expect to match again anytime soon.

two months pass...

Goodbye (official) Heardle, which I stopped playing around the time I started this thread.

Big tech company buys independent project, ruins it, closes it after a short time, we have heard this story many times before.

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Friday, 14 April 2023 20:25 (ten months ago) link

whatever, all the offshoot decade Heardles, 50s thru til 20s, are still around, at least 11 to play each day that I know of

there was a community thing of having just one heardle that isn't there with the thousands of variants, I guess if you are really into a band or a decade and have friends who are the same that might be OK, but it's not for me.

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Friday, 14 April 2023 20:38 (ten months ago) link

heardle got so much worse after spotify acquired, this was inevitable

ludicrously capacious bag (voodoo chili), Saturday, 15 April 2023 00:00 (ten months ago) link

https://heardlify.app/ - you can heardle any playlist/genre but yeah zero community aspect

I tried Heardle today and there is zero chance I have ever heard that song before.

papal hotwife (milo z), Saturday, 15 April 2023 00:06 (ten months ago) link

I've not done it in ages because it started being too obscure (to me) aka too recent! I recognised today's band from the first second though....
