Switched to Soundhound. But generally as said above. A mark of distinction. I'm not so good at discerning the exact album that Taylor Swift song is from or whatever other cute girl is singing the catchy tune that's playing. I do know that I won't care about it any more in a month or two.
Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.
I listen to a bunch of stuff. Found out what some of it was on Shazammalammabam sure, but I've found more on Pandora and even more relevant stuff to what I'm making in here.
Think of it this way, you're not weird, you just refuse to be a sheep for the man. The man wants you to think you're weird so you'll submit to him, but you're a free thinker man, and that makes you better than everyone else.
Or, you know, something between there and just calling yourself an outcast.
Do you ever feel like an outcast when you listen to music? Half the stuff I listen to Shazam doesn't recognize.
yea i do feel like that, but i dont care. if everybody wants to listen to the same shit based on the fact that everybody else is listening to it then thats their loss.
as far as shazam is concerned, fuck them
Eh, not really tbh. I love the weird, obscure music that I listen to. It makes me feel like my own person. And it's fun to share all my weird stuff with people because they end up liking it as well and give the best compliment ever: "You have great taste in music".
Shazam is great when watching a TV show that plays great music (like "Breaking Bad"). Lots of awesome new songs to discover.
Only a diehard fan would know there's no 1989 track on the 1989 album!
Also, I'd be impressed if Shazam could ID anything below the RIAADAR. But I'd love to try it on some HNW just for shits and giggles
about 7-8 years ago i tried it on a few tracks of "far from mainstream" dutch gabber as well as some other semi-underground stuff to show a friend that it wouldnt be that great. i was wrong. it found everything i tried even though i was playing it from my phone (which was a shitty old thing) and he was picking it up using his phone (also shitty, but not as shitty as mine).
i cant remember the tracks i used, but the first one i tried was "antichristus - the dark lord". i thought it wouldnt find it, so when it did i upped my game and went even more underground, but cant remember what i tried
