Midomi, search for music by humming

"Midomi is the ultimate music search tool because it is powered by your voice. Sing, hum, or whistle to instantly find your favorite music and connect with a community that shares your musical interests. Give it a try. It's truly amazing!"

Seriously, this is cool. Ever have that tune you just can't remember? Can you hum just a small part of it? Then you can find it thanks to Midomi.

I love this service. If you think you found it, you can have Midomi play you a snippet to make sure.

We all get that tune in our head that we just can't recall who sang it or the title.

If you are a Linux user like myself, then you will need to "always allow" via the adobe flashplayer settings panel, which can be gotten to here:

It should look like this:

Highlight, and the "always ask, always allow and always deny" options will then be selectable.

Once you do this, you may need to refresh the page, which on most browsers is the f5 button.

Here's more info from Midomi's about page:


Our mission is to build the most comprehensive database of searchable music. You can contribute to the database by singing in midomi's online recording studio in any language or genre. The next time anyone searches for that song, your performance might be the top result!


At midomi you can create your own profile, sing your favorite songs and share them with your friends and get discovered by other midomi users. You can listen to and rate others' musical performances, see their pictures, send them messages, buy original music, and more.


midomi features an extensive digital music store with a growing collection of more than two million legal music tracks. You can listen to samples of original recordings, buy the full studio versions directly from midomi, and play them on your Windows computer or compatible music players.
