There was once a time when if you needed to identify a song that was stuck in your head, you had to whistle it to a friend and hope they knew it! The Shazam service uses an acoustic fingerprint to identify a song that is played through a device's microphone - no more humming a tune to your bewildered-looking friends and family needed!
