    "Love this app! Not just for rap, but for everything. Making playlists is easy, and the search interface is good. I prefer it to iTunes. Of course it is much better if you have Music unlimited rather than just the free stuff on Prime, but at 8 bucks a month, this is still the best imo."

      "Shazam's such a great idea, but in execution, not so much. Some of the music I've thrown at it, it doesn't even seem to try; that is, more obscure stuff, like, say, a Shriekback song, it just gives up. Still, for the mainstream junk that you're likely wanting to know if it's the latest Kesha or Katy Perry or Taylor Swift or whatever fluff, it's pretty decent."

      "The identification rate for Soundhound really seems low to me. Every song I've tried to have it recognize, it's failed. However, when I let loose a rip-roaring fart, it suggested a K$sha track, so maybe it's got some redeeming value after all."

      "Genius is a pretty elegant and efficient app for identifying song and looking up lyrics. It works fairly seamlessly and organically and efficiently to identify songs from various sources. Whether it's other apps or music playing around you, Genius can quickly identify songs."

      "MusiXmatch is a great way to identify songs because it has a really huge database of lyrics. If you can't find what you're looking for on this, the song probably doesn't exist."

      "I always get songs stuck in my head and can't remember all the lyrics or even the title to the song. So this app is good for finding those songs that I can't quite place. You ever hear a great song and have no idea what it is but need to hear it again? That's what this app is great for."

      "Have you ever heard a song and just could not remember what the title of the track was? TrackID is a song recognition app that will identify the name of the song you are listening to. It is extremely accurate and will help relieve the headache that ensues when you are trying to figure out the name of a song you are listening to. This is a free app on GooglePlay and is a must have for all music aficionados."

      "While Siri isn't perfect, she goes a long way in helping me figure out what a song is that I just can't remember. I can't think of a better source for instant song information other than Siri... Or a radio DJ if you happen to have one standing next to you."

      "Apps for identifying songs is real cool. I use Google Now. I hit the listen button and usually after only seconds it recognizes the sound and tells me what it is. I always know what is playing now. I impressed my friends and family with this because they did not know you could do it. It is very simple. It is already built into most Android phones so most people already have it."
