Recent Glitch?
by Julie1691 on 2020/05/30 22:24
The last two times that I’ve used this app, it’s not only added the song that I was searching for to my Apple Music but the entirety of songs that I’ve searched since I started using the app. It’s very frustrating because some of them I don’t want and whenever I use the app now for one song, I have to delete dozens of others that I do not want. I’ve turned off the auto-add until this glitch gets fixed.

I use this app constantly!! I use it to obtain songs from tv shows and movies mostly, ones that for whatever reason resonate with me. Then later when I listen it brings back great emotions or deja vu that warms my heart for whatever reasons. The other great aspect of this is the songs are of all genres. I may have Johnny Mathis one minute and Chance the Rapper the next. Also, it suggests songs based on my list, which opens up an entire new world of music to me. The possibilities are endless and it gives little known musicians a chance to shine.

You Blocked the Iranian users from using of your services!!! Shame on you ! I was one of the biggest fan of Shazam app almost since the very beginning of the app released!! And now the shazam doesn’t work in Iran since 1 year ago !!!! And even the support team doesn’t care about it to at least doing something or saying something about this decision ! I thought listening to music has nothing to do with political situations between countries all around the world !! But now I realized that I was wrong! Shame on you guys! Shame on you ...

I wanted to shazam some music but for some reason my microphone was turned automatic. I tried using settings and it says it’s on and I tried opening the app and it was still off. How can I fix this problem to allow the microphone back on without having it turned off?
“Shazam!”
by Rocky33Now on 2020/03/24 17:02
There used to be a time in my younger years, it was a simple matter of identifying every single piece of music played on the radio. Now we’re in the 21st Century; radios have become practically obsolete, devices for playing music media beyond number. Each device having the capacity upwards of 100,000 songs. The average person needs some help knowing every song being played in a room within hearing range. Through the past ten years or more I’ve drifted back, and forth to Shazam. As my tool for telling me the name of the song I’m listening to. I’ve always never failed to notice, whenever there’s a song I need to know something about. Someone in the room has Shazam on the cell phone to help me out. Finally after a very long absence of getting by without Shazam on my phone. I downloaded the Shazam app on my phone for a long awaited reunion. The nicest feature about Shazam, it automatically connects me to my Apple Music. Then I can add the music I so quickly get identified added to my music collection on ITunes. Download the Shazam app, and give the music collection, and knowledge base a huge lift.
Best APP Ever!
by Robert Aymond on 2019/11/08 19:21
This review is long overdue but better late than......! Shazam was one of the very first apps I ever added to my first iPhone. It was surely in the top 5 if not the top 3, & it's so useful to a music lover like me! How I ever did without it still seems crazy to me, so it must never be allowed to go away or taken from any App Store. Let's make that a law so it will be legally protected! To the developers who created Shazam, I give all my thanks & appreciation for such a truly brilliant & useful tool that you've made available for everyone to easily use without the need to learn anything besides tapping a finger. Simplicity & Brilliance! Even more impressive though, is your unending & seamless enhancement of features & capabilities, yet always keeping it's simplicity intact. I'd love to shake your hands & thank everyone who's had a hand in any part of giving the world such a great program - especially to music lovers like me, but until I can, all I can say is Thanks to all of you. RA
Good not Great. Stop making it so hard to like you, Shazam
by Two times noforn on 2018/04/09 07:22
The app needs some TLC from a human. My sense is that it has spent too long under the hands of techies and over-aspirational leadership. I‘m a tech guy one; but the app would be better for molding by someone who just loves music and wants to snatch a title. I‘m that, too. The problem, after signing up and upgrading, I find it impossible to get back to the Shazam screen to which I am accustomed - You know, The big blue shazam button. Instead I have some incomprehensible screen with settings of undefined/ non-intuitive meaning; links to other apps; blah; blah. Shazam is not an all encompassing social environment. Stop it, Shazam CEO (or Creative Director or whoever is pitching otherwise). If I can‘t figure it out, I have to delete it and figure something else out. I don‘t want to. Please give me back the blue button; make it easy to get music on the drive by again; and you got my 3 bucks a month for life. Deal?
Songs while offline
by tyraandmom on 2019/11/18 21:30
This app is very useful for finding songs you may not know the name of or new songs that you've never heard before. I only have a few problems with this app. When you shazam a song while your offline it says that it'll tell you the song when you have connection. I travel a lot and am a lover of all music genres so I have quite a majority of songs from around the world, and I might not always have wi-fi to connect to. I'm currently abroad for a wedding and my carrier doesn't support data outside of my country, so at the after party they played loads of songs I liked; I went to shazam them and waited till I got back to my hotel to open the app, and there was no sign of them. Another problem I have is Auto-Shazam. I turn it on and when I go listen to a song on a video and it doesn't react. Overall this app is useful, but there are some features that claim to work, but don't.
ALMOST perfect
by Gabblebabbi on 2019/11/13 20:36
I absolutely love this app and I keep it on my main screen for easy access. I doesn’t tend to give me any problems. The only issue I have with it, and this is a big issue for me, is that the app icon is far too similar in appearance to FB messenger’s, so I often end up opening the wrong app when I’m frantically trying to Shazam a song before it stops playing. It would be really helpful if Shazam had a very unique and eye-catching icon that can’t be confused with most other apps. And this is just an idea for a feature that would be REALLY cool and useful in the future: if you could hum a melody into Shazam and it would recognize the song by the melody. A lot of times, you’re trying to remember a song that’s not playing, and you can’t remember any lyrics or who the artist was, but you remember the melody. It seems like the technology somewhat exists in those karaoke video games; it’d be really cool to see it utilized here.
Very Impressed. Amazed, really.
by DJ Kobayashi Maru on 2020/04/27 05:41
I've spent my lockdown time ripping my cd collection to FLAC, and I came across one of my electronic mix cd's from around 2002. No song listing, no CD-Text, not even a label. I spent about an hour looking through my computer files to see if I had any notes or playlists or cd-burning files that would help me identify the unfamiliar music on the disc. I tried listening to it to see if I could figure out the songs, but no luck at all. I was thinking there was no way Shazam would be even remotely helpful for this kind of stuff. I was dead wrong. Shazam nailed every single song, even the remixes. It identified one song as "The Sheriff" by Fila Brazilla, but the times didn't match up when I double checked AllMusic. My version was longer than the listed time. I did a little more research to see if there was a longer version. When there wasn't, I decided to check to see if that song ripped with extra silence at the head or tail in error on my CD. Sure enough, Shazam was right, and my disc was wrong: 30 seconds of silence at the end of the track. I am seriously stunned at what a great job Shazam did with such an eclectic disc of music. I knew it was good at the popular stuff, but most of these songs didn't have lyrics (and in some cases, melodies.) Anyway, highly recommended and highly grateful.
Special songs I like.
by Pattycakeb19 on 2020/03/26 17:04
I like to purchase music to play in my car. I do not usually want to buy full albums, but specific songs that I like. What I love about Shazam is that there may be a commercial with a song I like or a movie will feature a certain song. I may not know the correct name or who sings it. All I have do is Shazam it and there it is. I have used it so many times. My playlist for my car is unbelievable. All good songs. Not 30% or 70%, but 100% songs I like. The only bummer is that I used to be able to press purchase And it took me right to the place where I could purchase the song. I can’t do that now or if I can I do not know how. I am not interested in paying a monthly fee for all the music in the world. I want only specific songs and sometimes I might not be able to remember the name. Purchasing is the best option for me!
Shazaman! Searchin!
by allen enriquez on 2018/04/28 23:46
I’ve been using Shazam for over 10 years I barely thought about giving it a review. Not that it really needs it, because many people already know about the app globally. It’s the best app to see what artist/tv/movie/radio is playing! I remembered when I first used it when 3G was barely the next gen with it at these speeds it made it so much better to search for the details without any needs to going the the webpage or anything else it is at your fingertips just one click their is a way to say “Shazam” to start the searching. I am not to sure if it works with everything. Most o the type I find my self just using Siri to do most of my stuff while moving around. It’s a very useful app because you may what to know what movie someone is watching or a friend my want to know without interrupting the movie they can search seamlessly!
Older songs
by momalaaa on 2019/09/27 16:49
I’ve noticed you are using the release date of that certain song which may not be when it was originally released. I know songs released in 60’s and 70’s have this done when album is reissue. I’m having to look up correct year when making year specific play lists. Also, younger people take that as correct & won’t be argued out of it. Would it be a huge problem to add Originally Released showing that year. Shazam doesn’t always recognize older songs. Just finished watching Ken Burns series Country Music and a there were a lot of artists not recognized at all. It seems to not recognize music that’s not mainstream. I don’t tend too listen to mainstream all the time. Local groups aren’t noticed sometimes either even ef they’ve had a few albums out. Shazam not too bad keeping up with massive amount of music there is today. I just get annoyed sometimes when I can’t find the words to that dang song that’s playing right now!
Classical and Modern Serious Music.
by Harvey Kongsgaard on 2018/08/26 17:30
I absolutely love Shazam. I also love all types of music but especially classical music and especially of the modern genre. I play keyboards and was brought up playing an antique Harmonium (a pedal reed organ) and in a short time became accomplished enough to be the Assistant Organist for a large Presbyterian Church in the Twin City suburb town of Hastings MN. We had a small seven rank but very powerful Pipe Organ which was absolutely a GAS to play full organ even tho I had to sort of wing it on the full 32 note pedal keyboard. Now getting back to my review of Shazam. I think your App comes up short in identifying classical musical tracks and albums. Most serious music lovers prefer to know the Composer first before they know who are the Artists or Artist. I do wish Shazam would provide much more Info on the Classical Music tracks (PLEASE) but thanx a whole lot for what you do do.
I’ve Been Shazam—otized !!!!
by CeceLady on 2018/11/24 01:52
This is the bestest app ever PEOPLE! If you want to know the name of a song and artist this is the app you want. It is so accurate and on point. I always keep Shazam open in the background because I love any kind of music that sounds good to me since I don’t have a preference in music my playlist varies and this is how I use it .......when I am listening to the radio and a new song comes on and I have never heard that song....BAAM! I SHAZAM IT RIGHT AWAY!!!! when a car goes by with a good song that I like, or when I go into any business to shop and they’re playing some nice song I immediately SHAZAM IT......I love the fact that I it also finds latin music not only English music and the app is able to find both languages, and even classical music, well the list goes on. I love it and use it basically everyday. ❤️❤️❤️❤️😊
Life changer
by Magicmiketooo on 2019/03/17 19:50
Whoever created this app purely genius and only for the people who really enjoy music. People can tell you that the Love music, but people who really enjoy music Will tell you how music can change their mood around if they’re happy you can make them sad, if they’re sad or upset you can make them happy. These kind of people, allows the music to get inside her heart and soul those are the true believers of sound of music. Which is a great movie by the way a.k.a.. So thank you , Shazam you’ve allowed me to download music from anywhere I go to the department store, elevator, just listen to the music in your car, I can finally do you know who’s singing that song in actually have it downloaded it onto my Music list. Finally someone who is developed this app understands what I’m saying about music. Blanco
One of My Top 5 Apps
by Dallas halsey on 2019/12/02 14:36
I LOVE THIS APP. I’m always on the hunt for new music and this app helps me do that! I love how I can be out and about, hear a song, hold up my phone, and in less than five seconds I’ve learned what it is. And it can seriously hear the song even if you’re out in a public place and the music isn’t that loud! Let me give you a few examples. I was in a busy chipotle and it gave me the song title. I was in a lens crafter and could barely hear the speaker myself. And there was this song from this short 1 minute video where my friend is talking over the song and all you can hear in the background is the melody but I was like OMG WHAT IS THAT SONG and I thought there was no way the app would be able to get it because the song was so subtle but low and behold it discovered it! DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!
3.5 stars
by 12356890673Abi on 2018/08/31 04:59
The live music lyrics could be better. Like I don’t understand why it hears the lyrics and recognizes if it is an a wrong place and “catches up”, but really, it doesn’t recognize if it’s paused? Can’t even hear any music but it continues as if it does. Pointless feature. And I appreciate that it has lyrics, but some popular songs don’t. They should sync to more than one website for lyrics. The ads aren’t personalized either, and honestly I wish it was. I don’t mind a clothing ad geared towards my interests every now and then, but constantly seeing the same add for AHS Apocalypse while trying to look at lyrics for my worship songs... I keep covering it up with my hands as I read bc I don’t want those kind of frightening images in my head. Being personalized ads, even just variety would be nicer. Don’t want to see the same ad every time I Shazam a song. And auto Shazam doesn’t work that well either
Great app when it works!
by Mathew71 on 2017/12/13 20:53
This app is literally part of my daily routine so I use it quite a lot. However recently I’ve been noticing when I go to play a song using Apple Music through Shazam the entire app just stops working on my iPhone. So I figured it was just my phone acting up but then I went to use it on my iPad and the exact thing happened when I went to the map and tried playing a song. Also a lot of small things about the user interface will just stop working like the back buttons and scrolling on a page. It’s to the point every time after I Shazam a song and try to either add it to Apple Music or Olay it I have to close the app and restart it. Overall I love the app just wish I could use it a bit longer without having to restart it!
Several Issues
by Proteus 846 on 2017/10/06 04:44
Shazam is a very useful tool, but it does have some issues in this version. For starters, I’d like to modify Notifications Settings… but the link in the app takes me to the front page of Settings and there’s no panel for Shazam available on my new phone. Additionally, when upgrading to a new iPhone I lost access to the ad-free experience I bought into years ago with the since-depreciated Shazam Encore. I’m using the same account as before, but I have ads now… I’ve submitted a ticket and am waiting to hear back. A final complaint would be with Facebook integration. Most apps now show me a page asking to sign in with the Facebook app, which takes me there to authenticate; Shazam, on the other hand, wants me to sign in directly in the app instead of taking me to the Facebook app to do so; this is less secure, sends my data through Shazam for additional lost security, and is just not the way I want to do things. Security and privacy are important in today’s world, and Shazam needs to add simple support for Facebook’s newer secure-authentication system. Other than those issues and occasional minor bugs, Shazam works great. Aside from the emails about the top charts that I can’t seem to turn off in the app for some reason, I enjoy using Shazam and it has proven extremely helpful in identifying music on many occasions.
Most Reliable App Ever Made!!
by Salty girl on 2019/10/11 23:45
Since day one and what seems like endless apps downloaded since apps were created, Shazam has been that constant, that rock, that reliable friend. This app has been with me throughout the years and hasn’t failed, hasn’t been stuck in some circling mode of hell or crashed. Sure, maybe it’s had some hiccups getting some songs incorrect or versions of certain songs but we all have hiccups! Shazam you have helped me be mom o’ the year and always knowing the song 😉. You didn’t stop there either- you went further with letting me sing along!! It doesn’t get better than this app. Thanks Shazam, we are super cool together! Please stay this way. Add a trivia guessing game and BOOM outta the ballpark. Stay away from bugs. Stay safe. Continue to be awesome!! Love, Mom SHAZAM ROCKS!
Too many changes, too much Greed $$’s
by Colorado0so on 2019/11/28 04:26
When Shazam app first came out, IT was a fantastic product!! and you could Shazam a song on radio, in a car, on TV... and listen to it “”all”” later & see lyrics, share complete song/video with family & friends.... it was a 5-star App... after it was sold... purchased and changed & compromised by ? Apple ... ? ?new ownership.. the immediate Greed for money appeared and then extra music fees, purchases, memberships tainted this once useful App... greed, yes, greed... absolutely destroyed the once marvelous features and freedom of use and listen to songs, many saved & shared.. & CD’s purchased at retailers... Family & friends tell me they seldom use it since all the changes and restrictions and new, greedy charges imposed/required to ‘checkout a song’. I’d have to say... that’s what killed its once, highly rated popularity... Apple Music and Spotfy biggest issues I hear about...$$$’s Good luck !
Reading my mind
by soundz4senses on 2019/01/24 18:40
Shazam has been around for a long time and throughout its development what’s amazing to me is how it has kept up, not only with contemporaneous music but also music from antiquity. There are other amazing apps for music out there - think radioooo - But Shazam really defines the music discovery app process. I only wish that there could be a one button or step process to acquiring the music easily. I’d happily pay a dollar for every song I’ve Shazammed. If they can figure that out a lot of money will be made and a lot of musicians and music lovers will be happy. Musicians because hopefully they’ll get paid for their efforts and music lovers because they’ll have access to the music that they have discovered with Shazam. Well done and keep up the good work.
😁😍😃AMAZING 😃😍😁
by #StrawberryLemonade on 2019/06/27 17:41
Omg Shazam is AMAZING it works so fast and it even has the options to l’est en to the song in Apple Music and to read the lyrics and so much else! Honestly I would like to point out how hard this programming must have been. They work so hard! As for if you are thinking about getting it I recommend this to people of all ages really. There is really nothing to worry about for kids. And it is so helpful. At any time you can have it Listen to a song. I even did this when there were people talking over the music and it still worked. I recommend this app so much! It even works if ur playing songs on ur own and phone which is weird but helpful when using airplay sometimes. Very helpful. And approximate time and effort they have put into this app.
Really Good!
by Venezuelan Melomaniac... on 2018/12/24 16:32
Nowadays there’s a bunch of apps that perform the same function as Shazam... but they’re the pioneers so I’ve remained with them without even thinking about using something else, and I’ve seen some of those others apps not finding a tune’s name while Shazam is already offering to you the option of playing it through ITunes ...isn’t that pure sweet love? I’ve even find out the name of songs that are been played live! (Of course only with high performance artist/or people using some sampling tracks a long their shows). I’m not a write-reviews-guy ... but for Shazam I decided to do it in gracefully recognition of major gift that is for a music lover to be able to identify new music everyday, anytime and anywhere for years now! 1000% recommended ! 🙏🏽❤️ Peace ya’ll!
Could Be Better
by Davidmaxbaker123 on 2018/01/17 10:00
It IS very useful in finding out the track name, artist, album of a great many songs. It DOES have a few flaws. One flaw is that it occasionally gets a song completely wrong, or associates it with another artist, but that is probably less that 1 % of the time. Another quirk which I don't like is that it frequently defaults to a newer CD compilation album release for a song when what I really wanted was the original album and it's song listings. One thing I like about it is its ability to display an album title exactly how you need to label it in iTunes in order for iTunes to be able to find the album artwork. If your title is just one character off from Shazam, iTunes won't find the artwork and you have to enter it manually. Fix the glitches I described, and it's a five-star app in my book.
I love this application
by Mad Mike Max on 2019/05/08 23:48
Like stated above, I love this application,,but,, and it is a BIG but, if you are trying to learn how to sing a song, hence the reason this application failed to get that 5th Star. That missing 5th Star is because when you identify a song and it has the “Lyrics” button to depress, after you tag that song. I the lyrics tend to lag a little behind the spoken/sung word(s). This short coming tends to leave one/you guessing what is to be sung next and has you from time to time playing “CATCH UP” with that song, if lyrics are unknown to you. If you could program this application to show you the next line of song lyrics at LEAST a split second before the song lyrics are sung ,, “THAT WOULD BE GREAT”, and for CERTAIN would gain you the 5th illusive Star.
Thank you!
by Digital Learning Specialist on 2018/06/19 02:17
Shazam! I do not have enough thank full words for your team. I’ve been using the app for as long as I can remember, but I’ve finally decided to give back to you and post a review. First off, the free aspect is incredible. I hate to say this, but it’s such an incredible app that I’d have no problem paying for what’s free. Next, thanks to the app, I have danced and grooved much harder, because now I can find the music my heart craves! Third, I love the fact that I can prove to my husband I know more music than he does (we use Shazam to Test). Ha. I could list 100 reasons why this software seems to be some of the more radical to hit the market, but I’ll just summarize w a deep and heart-felt thank you for your passion and vision. Amazing app. Works beautifully. Many thumbs up.
I wish I could put ZERO STARS
by Saaoyx on 2019/07/29 18:21
I do not understand how people are getting what they want with this app. I thought this app would work to find “that song” for me, guess what? It didn’t. I got this app thinking it would be great, because the reviews are fantastic. The only thing I like about this app is that it doesn’t cost wasted money (at least I can just throw it away). I don’t know about anyone else, but I believe lots of people are also getting Shazam because the app itself made it seem impressive. When I first opened Shazam, I wanted to play around with it, so I sang Happy Birthday. Who doesn’t know Happy Birthday? Apparently Shazam didn’t. Then I got confused and tried it again, it still didn’t work. I finally decided to sing my song I wanted to know the name of (I still don’t know the name of). It didn’t work. Voice recognition is very helpful and accessible, but Shazam sadly couldn’t be with that. It shows how badly great inventions like voice recognition can be used for.
This is an awesome app... but mine has been glitching!
by Lysie Lou on 2018/06/23 04:39
I love this app, I’ve had it since it first came out. I like that I can link it to face book, share cool songs that I found on my face book feed or to individual friends. I can even look up the lyrics to the songs that I Shazam. However, for about a month now when ever I go to “my Shazam” to look at the the songs I discovered it kicks me out the app immediately. I have even tried signing out so I could sign back in, in the hopes that it would reset the app... that didn’t help. So I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it again. That didn’t work! So it is for this reason I’m am rating the app 2 stars. It is extremely annoying that I can’t use the app to its fullest. Especially when I enjoyed using the app the way it was intended prior to this issue. So if the developers can fix this glitch I would be happy to give this a app a 5 star rating-once again.
Great App!! Very Helpful!!
by john h6212 on 2019/09/26 06:06
App is great it’s very helpful when your trying to figure out the name of a song that is on the tip of your tounge, or who sings the song Shazam is there to help with that in a matter of seconds. I’ve used this app for a long time with all of the songs I’ve Shazam’d I’ve only had one issue, I think it was just a glitch it gave me a completely different song 2 times in a row and then the 3rd time it popped up, I haven’t had an issue since, I’ve also had a few app upgrades over the time period too. I honestly think since it was a song in a movie the talking and other background noise threw it off l, but I love this app!! I’ve only had the one issue and no other problems since the one mess up.
Fork to my Plate
by nvthree on 2018/12/02 09:06
I've been a user since 2009. If music holds any sway in your daily life, Shazam is the fork to your dinner plate. Growing a product from a true mvp to what it is today, over (?) years has to be hard. There's been versions of Shazam I've passionately hated. In hindsight, I could only hate it because was so helpful. Today, so many others use this app just like I do, to record and put name to the soundtrack of their life so they can bring that music back on demand whenever they want. For the last couple years this app has been soundly built. Its my go to for creating playlists and It's connected to my music library. Shazam is how I enhance my time with my family and friends, building the musical backdrop for the best times of my life.
Could be great but doesn’t get the ones you really need
by TxSage17 on 2018/11/23 19:16
I use Shazam just to keep track of songs I like that I know & to test it. It usually fails. When I Don’t know one & love it & really want to find out who it is - Shazam comes up empty. I wish there was some way to store the music so that if it is ever added to the database it will let you know. Currently there is no way of tracking how many it has failed you on. Just now I tried it on Alice’s Restaurant. I expected it to come right up but it could never get it! How can it not recognize an Arlo Guthrie song that has been around for 50 years? The other thing I would like is for it to give the Original release date & album. I don’t care if it was later on a compilation. So it is really fairly useless for most of us but I still play with it & keep hoping they will add these features ...
THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MUSIC LOVERS
by BriggsMultimedia on 2019/09/14 12:35
SHAZAM IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MUSIC LOVERS SINCE iTunes. I listen to music much of the day. Whether I’m in my car, at home, on an aircraft, on a Caribbean Sea vessel, my music is on! What Shazam does for me is to identify music with which I’m unfamiliar in an instant. And the best feature is one I only recently “discovered!” As I heard new music, I used to run for my phone with the Shazam app to position it to pick up the audio. But I listen to so much of my music via my iPhone! I just discovered that I can simply click on Shazam while any music is playing in my phone from any source. Shazam identifies it instantly! Before the ding has finished playing from some radio station in the world, Shazam has made it possible for me to download it!!!!
Exactly as One Would Hope!
by N3UMY3R on 2019/07/16 14:22
I loath being asked to review. I don’t mind giving my ‘star-rating,’ but anything more dissuades me. HOWEVER, the folks at Shazam deserve praise. As a music-lover and a musician this app is invaluable. It is incredibly competent and accurate at its job! Thank you folks for your brilliance in helping me identify songs in a music world that is now populated with probably the largest volume of “recorded” classic, indie, and DIY artists in the history of our civilization. Just 30 years ago the task of your app would have been daunting, however now it seems to me it should be insurmountable, yet you guys are accomplished at the task. Making my life easier and my iTunes playlist evolving and diverse. Thank you seems insufficient. Regardless, thank you!
Great all around music application.
by NickA1441 on 2019/01/23 05:36
The icon on this application is extremely recognizable thanks to its popularity and promotion. It has a 4.9/5 stars on the APP store and it deserves it for its simplicity. Its descreption is simple and clear and does not get much more user friendly than this as you simply push a single button and the APP listens to the song and sends it back to you. Its target audience is defined as anyone who loves music. Its stand out characteristics and content is simply how easy it is to use and how effective it gets the job done. This APP is free for all users. It is innovative in the sense that once you start up the application, all you have to see is the opening page, which is one giant button, making navigation very easy.
Seriously though...
by Emmajay775 on 2018/06/23 13:21
I don’t write reviews. I don’t care that much tbh. However this app is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Yeah I know it sounds sad. However, this app has brought me music I find just the last lyrics on. It’s fast and smooth and saves everything so I don’t have to remember it. This app has brought me music I would have never gone the extra mile to listen too. Bringing me to experiences I’ve never had. Even with no WiFi it saves what it’s hearing. It’s crazy. I was feeling down and I heard this song I used the app on a while back. I looked it up on this app and found something that is almost like personal therapy. I’ve recommended it to all my friends there’s just no beating something as convenient as this.
Shazam Is Awesome!
by Hooked on Butterflies on 2018/05/15 21:13
I absolutely love Shazam! My daughter told me about it, so I downloaded it. When new songs play on the radio, the DJs never say the name of the song or artist, so it takes a while to learn who sings them. With Shazam, I never have to worry about it anymore! I’ve used it for TV shows to find out the song and artist and also in a store when they are playing music over the sound system. I have a party every year and start collecting music so I can play it during the party. All I have to do is go to “My Shazam” file to look at all the songs I Shazamed and make my playlist. Sometimes, I can’t understand the words to the song and I’m able to go to the lyrics tab to look them up. It’s the coolest App ever!
Poor UX. Hard to Shazam after the first Shazam.
by simplegray on 2018/02/22 23:00
This app does one thing and that one thing is not present on any page in this app after your first Shazam. So dumb. More — The “Shazam” button exists only on the launch page. Once you Shazam and it finds the track, you are forever stuck on the details page of that song. It doesn’t reset back to the Shazam page, ever. And it doesn’t let you swipe to go back (sorry iPhone Plus and X users). If you come back 3 days later to Shazam a song quickly, you’ll still be stuck on the last track you Shazam’d and no quick Shazam button access (read: no ability to Shazam). The only way to do it is to hit little tiny back arrow button perfectly to go back. I have missed so many Shazam chances because I opened Shazam, it lands on the details page of a song I Shazam’d days ago, and I couldn’t quickly hit back with one hand on my phone. Beautifully designed app, poorly thought out UX.
NOT what it use to be. 👎🙁
by x-_-paiN-_- on 2017/10/29 04:48
Shazam use to be fast & easy after the updates now it takes for ever and it hardly ever finds songs on tv like on movies any more. Specially if not in English or recent songs. I run iPhone 6+ 128 GB so it's not because of space. I miss the sound waves it use to have. Had to try 7 times to find a Willie Nelson song and for another one after 10 attempts I gave up. Developers please make Shazam what it use to be, it doesn't have to be all pretty face as is now I use to spend a lot of time at a time on the app would stay on for 2 - 3 hours listening to music from Shazam but now it's so slow. Also I want to get paid version but how can I if I'm not happy with what I see. Please go back or re update but fix.
This is amazing really
by kylie_nope on 2019/12/25 20:18
I love this app so much, I really liked this song at a party and I didn’t know what it was and I asked my friend and she whipped out Shazam and told me the name of the song and I was amazed. I immediately downloaded it and it’s so cool. It will take around 2 seconds for it to recognize the song and it will add it to your Apple Music if you want it to. It will also tell you who it is by, and how many Shazam’s it’s had. This app also doesn’t even require the voice of the person singing to know the song. It requires no sign up so you can just download and use it right away. This app is incredible and I really love it so you should give it a try!!!! Plus, it’s totally free!!! I love it so much! You should try!!
Works great but could be even better if...
by kaavik on 2018/02/24 15:48
They added Shazam button on all screens - especially the song screen (after successful Shazam) and the MyShazams screen. Call me lazy, but it is a pain to click ‘X’ or figure out how to go back to the main Shazam button screen. It’s only one extra step for the user, but it is an inconvenience and you could create an even better user experience with easier access to Shazam’s core functionality (recognizing music!) from anywhere in the app. BTW, I am a long-time premium user and don’t want to enable the auto-Shazam feature as I only want to know and keep record of songs that I really like. Basically, MyShazams is like my musical wish list for song purchases.
Finds songs scary fast
by tulleymay on 2019/08/31 04:07
I feel like hell is hearing an amazing song and not being able to find the name of it. However, Shazam will reach down into the burning depths of hell and pluck you out safely to the melody of your new favorite song, with the name and artist attached to it. In .1463 seconds, it will find the song you are looking for, even if it’s the part of the song that’s basically silent, or sounds like 10 million other songs. Shazam knows. Shazam knows the song you’re looking for, the thoughts in your head, your deepest darkest secret, the first time you masturbated, and the when and how of your death. Shazam knows all, and it knows in .1463 seconds or less. It is omnipotent; omniscient... and a hell of an app I guess.
Shazam ANYTHING (literally)
by Busyfresh2000 on 2018/06/07 00:24
This is a great app to use to identify ALMOST every song ever, although there are those tracks that no matter how many times you shazam them they won't be identified, even if you know the song and just want to know the artist. My one gripe with this app is that it doesn't match up the tracks properly; it says it's this song, but in reality you know it isn't and you shazam it a few more times, and then the proper song is matched...all in all it's a very useful app, doesn't take much space, and usually can get a match first try... 3.5 out of a possible 5 from me, but I had to give it a 4 due to the fact I can't click on only a half star. This app is 👌 by me... -Busyfresh2000
Not as smart as you’d think
by Aste Spumante on 2017/11/06 01:49
Shazam (at least for me) takes a long time to open to the point where it’s possible to press the Shazam button. Then, it takes a while to recognize the song. Often, a song ends before it can do all that. What usually happens is that I hear a song, then decide in the course of listening that I want to identify it. Then, the above happens and the song ends without being identified. I feel like I’m supposed to start Shazam-ing as soon as the song starts. That doesn’t seem realistic since I need to hear at least some of the song to know that I want to know more about it. Also, it’s not as smart as a human. It seems to recognize data embedded in the song rather than the actual characteristics of the music. If you Shazam a live performance of a well-known song—say, a performance on an NPR show—it will not recognize it.
Complaint about Shazam
by Gio22447 on 2019/12/26 21:27
While I was talking on the phone today I tried to delete a song on my Shazam Library and I clicked the three vertical dots of that song. I clicked “remove from Shazam library” at least five times and nothing happened. Once I hung up the phone and went back to library I noticed it deleted five songs from my Shazam Library. This isn’t cool since it gives people the misconception that the song wasn’t deleted and they can continuously click delete only to find out after, that, they deleted multiple songs. Either enhance the system to allow deleting a song while on a call or display an error message saying “error unable to delete a song while on cellular data, etc.” One of the five songs from my library which was deleted, as a result of this bs, was a song I was searching for for over 5 years and now it’s lost forever and I don’t remember the name of that artist.
Amazing Music App!

I love this app, it is so awesome, and here’s why: First of all, I’m a music LOVER. And this is a great way to be in contact with music. When I’m watching you tube, I hear music that I really love. I want it on my playlist of course, but I don’t know the title of it and I get really sad. Untell this app was released, I would use this app every day, and I still do. And I can get any song I hear basically. I LOVE IT 🥰 When ever I want a song I hear, Shazam is great, it’s easy. I take my iPad always on the go, and I get ten songs on my playlist every day basically. I hope you all love this app, because I totally do! Who ever made this app, I give credit. Thank you so Much for reading! Bye now. P.s. I love horses and my horse Bokaloh says hi bye😏😘
The Best!

This is the best app I’ve ever used to help name those songs! If you guys want a feature suggestion, it would be to display a list of several songs with their perspective percentage match for what you’re recording. For example: 97.4% match this song...... 22.7% match this song...... 14.2% match this song...... ...... (and so forth) ....... Atleast, this would be something I would add to my app (if I knew how to make one). Because basically, on occasion when Shazam just can’t correctly name a song, it may be useful for us to see the top most likely songs it could be, and we could go through each of them to see if any of them are the one we are looking for. Also, with a feature like that it’d also be good to receive updates live, like after every second (and as the app hears more of the song) it updates it’s list of percentages of what song it’s likely to be. Updating live so that you can continue to shazam as long as you want, and the longer of a shazam, the more likely you are to see the correct song at the top of the list. ... Just a suggestion to make the app better!
Not dependable
by handmethefrench on 2018/09/29 03:54
This app only needs to do one thing: tell me what the name of the present song is. It’s not that difficult. Songs don’t last forever, and by the time you realize you like the song, you probably only have a few moments to capture the song with an app, as you juggle with driving your car and getting away from any background noise. Yet, this app cannot the only thing it needs to do. It struggles to load every time, before eventually the button doesn’t respond at all to the touch. If you think updating the app might make it work, you’d be wrong. Admittedly, this might not normally merit the time to draft a negative review, but there’s nothing quite so annoying as having precious few seconds to capture a song and then having your dedicated app fail at its only job. If anyone from the Shazam bureaucracy is reading this, please make whatever simplifications are necessary to this app to make it work.
Simply the best!

No matter where I am whether it's the supermarket on the road or at a friends house, if I hear a song I like I break out the phone and hit Shazam and bam, I have that song in seconds! Sometimes Shazam can even catch a song with only the few remaining beats as the song is about to go off! I've had Shazam for as long as I've owned my iPhone (yrs) and I can only remember twice that it did not recognize a song: Once because it was a very old Blues song (the song was old as dirt)! And once at a nightclub, I suspect it was because the FJ was mixing and it couldn't pick up the track.. But overall, life without Shazam would be a bummer! I really love this app! Sincerely! It's simply the best!
Instant Gratification
by susanac201 on 2017/10/19 00:21
The first time I learned about Shazam, I was in a music store and heard a song that I liked but didn't know who sang it or what it was called. My friend said, "just 'Shazam' it," and I looked at her like she was nuts. "Shazam? Isn't that what a genie says when granting your wish?" She laughed and showed me -- artist, song, album -- right on her phone. Like magic. If your wish is to discover music, Shazam is your personal genie. Just tap the button and "Shazam!" All the information you need, including the lyrics, instantly appears on your phone. Tap another button and the song or even the entire album is downloading! I love it for its ease of use and reliability. Don't wait for a genie, just Shazam!
Use this app more than once a day
by Draped In Crimson on 2018/12/14 20:59
To help me create fantastic playlists, buy some of the best music, and to discover sounds perhaps out of my sphere which I use to grow that great roundness & richness of my life. Only problem: it’s not ALL KNOWING. Had some disappointments trying to find choral music, or something symphonic, or not from our usual sources: like The Dmitri Petrovski Singers, or well-known Mozart choral pieces, which is disappointing, because I don’t know all the great composers by heart. And sometimes, when watching tv, trying to Shazam a song while dialogue is also apparent is too difficult, and therefore lost, to my great despair. I hope further iterations will allow me to help distinguish one from the other.
Shazam is my Jam
by Darbren on 2018/09/15 03:58
I LOVE Shazam I use it daily, reminiscing about the good old days or Loving on the New Indie Pop, Folk Music, R&B Or " Let It Be" Shazam is ALWAYS there for me😘 & rarely do I Shazam a song you don't have in your Bank!!! It can become tricky with local Jokers and Particular genres LIKE OUR INFAMOUS NEVER MISTAKEN CAJUN/Zydeco Music From Louisiana which I absolutely LOVE ❤️ Like... Wayne Toups, Jamie Bergeron, (Keith Frank) Yeah!!!oh no scratch Keith He like's to TAUNT Caucasian Music TOO MUCH LOL he'd play into a song everyone would sing😊then Stop (Now tell me whose prejudice when I'm standing there loving your style and stuff then stop & Laugh and go into R&B? What you say??? Still love him though 🤗 From the Stylistics, to the Carpenters, Led-Zeppelin to Doris Day. Rely on Shazam For your Music it's no Faux-Pais! "Que Sera Sera"

Recent Glitch?
by Julie1691 on 2020/05/30 22:24
The last two times that I’ve used this app, it’s not only added the song that I was searching for to my Apple Music but the entirety of songs that I’ve searched since I started using the app. It’s very frustrating because some of them I don’t want and whenever I use the app now for one song, I have to delete dozens of others that I do not want. I’ve turned off the auto-add until this glitch gets fixed.

I use this app constantly!! I use it to obtain songs from tv shows and movies mostly, ones that for whatever reason resonate with me. Then later when I listen it brings back great emotions or deja vu that warms my heart for whatever reasons. The other great aspect of this is the songs are of all genres. I may have Johnny Mathis one minute and Chance the Rapper the next. Also, it suggests songs based on my list, which opens up an entire new world of music to me. The possibilities are endless and it gives little known musicians a chance to shine.

And now the shazam doesn’t work in Iran since 1 year ago !!!! And even the support team doesn’t care about it to at least doing something or saying something about this decision ! I thought listening to music has nothing to do with political situations between countries all around the world !! But now I realized that I was wrong! Shame on you guys! Shame on you ...

by NATALEE A🔮 on 2020/05/27 05:47
I use Shazam RELIGIOUSLY!! It’s perfect for looking up the name of songs and artists you’ve never heard of before and love the music! I’d give 10 stars if I could & also you can make playlists it’s worth spending money and obsessed with music like I am and ok with putting your credit or debit card in your apple wallet for iPhone users!!
I love this App
by Ladyandhermusic on 2020/05/27 04:16
I have been using Shazam for years, I love it so much!! I have created great playlist with help from Shazam!!

I love it. I’m not to good with all the electronics so this has helped me get songs on my phone . Thanks so much. Your a blessing💜🙋🏻‍♀️
Fast and accurate
by MavsSuck on 2020/05/27 03:52
Love this app, it always recognizes songs fast even when it’s not the best environment for it.
Good
by Mar5ino on 2020/05/27 03:34
I love it it is good app
Helpful app
by ghie40 on 2020/05/27 02:20
Quick in identifying song title and who performs it.
Dont download it
by anyc1377 on 2020/05/27 01:43
This app is crap It keep showing me that it cant find the music I'm looking for And I'm done with it
Can’t allow microphone
by madout2 fan on 2020/05/27 01:24
I wanted to shazam some music but for some reason my microphone was turned automatic. I tried using settings and it says it’s on and I tried opening the app and it was still off. How can I fix this problem to allow the microphone back on without having it turned off?
“Shazam!”
by Rocky33Now on 2020/03/24 17:02
There used to be a time in my younger years, it was a simple matter of identifying every single piece of music played on the radio. Now we’re in the 21st Century; radios have become practically obsolete, devices for playing music media beyond number. Each device having the capacity upwards of 100,000 songs. The average person needs some help knowing every song being played in a room within hearing range. Through the past ten years or more I’ve drifted back, and forth to Shazam. As my tool for telling me the name of the song I’m listening to. I’ve always never failed to notice, whenever there’s a song I need to know something about. Someone in the room has Shazam on the cell phone to help me out. Finally after a very long absence of getting by without Shazam on my phone. I downloaded the Shazam app on my phone for a long awaited reunion. The nicest feature about Shazam, it automatically connects me to my Apple Music. Then I can add the music I so quickly get identified added to my music collection on ITunes. Download the Shazam app, and give the music collection, and knowledge base a huge lift.
Best APP Ever!
by Robert Aymond on 2019/11/08 19:21
This review is long overdue but better late than......! Shazam was one of the very first apps I ever added to my first iPhone. It was surely in the top 5 if not the top 3, & it's so useful to a music lover like me! How I ever did without it still seems crazy to me, so it must never be allowed to go away or taken from any App Store. Let's make that a law so it will be legally protected! To the developers who created Shazam, I give all my thanks & appreciation for such a truly brilliant & useful tool that you've made available for everyone to easily use without the need to learn anything besides tapping a finger. Simplicity & Brilliance! Even more impressive though, is your unending & seamless enhancement of features & capabilities, yet always keeping it's simplicity intact. I'd love to shake your hands & thank everyone who's had a hand in any part of giving the world such a great program - especially to music lovers like me, but until I can, all I can say is Thanks to all of you. RA
Good not Great. Stop making it so hard to like you, Shazam
by Two times noforn on 2018/04/09 07:22
The app needs some TLC from a human. My sense is that it has spent too long under the hands of techies and over-aspirational leadership. I‘m a tech guy one; but the app would be better for molding by someone who just loves music and wants to snatch a title. I‘m that, too. The problem, after signing up and upgrading, I find it impossible to get back to the Shazam screen to which I am accustomed - You know, The big blue shazam button. Instead I have some incomprehensible screen with settings of undefined/ non-intuitive meaning; links to other apps; blah; blah. Shazam is not an all encompassing social environment. Stop it, Shazam CEO (or Creative Director or whoever is pitching otherwise). If I can‘t figure it out, I have to delete it and figure something else out. I don‘t want to. Please give me back the blue button; make it easy to get music on the drive by again; and you got my 3 bucks a month for life. Deal?
Songs while offline
by tyraandmom on 2019/11/18 21:30
This app is very useful for finding songs you may not know the name of or new songs that you've never heard before. I only have a few problems with this app. When you shazam a song while your offline it says that it'll tell you the song when you have connection. I travel a lot and am a lover of all music genres so I have quite a majority of songs from around the world, and I might not always have wi-fi to connect to. I'm currently abroad for a wedding and my carrier doesn't support data outside of my country, so at the after party they played loads of songs I liked; I went to shazam them and waited till I got back to my hotel to open the app, and there was no sign of them. Another problem I have is Auto-Shazam. I turn it on and when I go listen to a song on a video and it doesn't react. Overall this app is useful, but there are some features that claim to work, but don't.
ALMOST perfect
by Gabblebabbi on 2019/11/13 20:36
I absolutely love this app and I keep it on my main screen for easy access. I doesn’t tend to give me any problems. The only issue I have with it, and this is a big issue for me, is that the app icon is far too similar in appearance to FB messenger’s, so I often end up opening the wrong app when I’m frantically trying to Shazam a song before it stops playing. It would be really helpful if Shazam had a very unique and eye-catching icon that can’t be confused with most other apps. And this is just an idea for a feature that would be REALLY cool and useful in the future: if you could hum a melody into Shazam and it would recognize the song by the melody. A lot of times, you’re trying to remember a song that’s not playing, and you can’t remember any lyrics or who the artist was, but you remember the melody. It seems like the technology somewhat exists in those karaoke video games; it’d be really cool to see it utilized here.
Very Impressed. Amazed, really.
by DJ Kobayashi Maru on 2020/04/27 05:41
I've spent my lockdown time ripping my cd collection to FLAC, and I came across one of my electronic mix cd's from around 2002. No song listing, no CD-Text, not even a label. I spent about an hour looking through my computer files to see if I had any notes or playlists or cd-burning files that would help me identify the unfamiliar music on the disc. I tried listening to it to see if I could figure out the songs, but no luck at all. I was thinking there was no way Shazam would be even remotely helpful for this kind of stuff. I was dead wrong. Shazam nailed every single song, even the remixes. It identified one song as "The Sheriff" by Fila Brazilla, but the times didn't match up when I double checked AllMusic. My version was longer than the listed time. I did a little more research to see if there was a longer version. When there wasn't, I decided to check to see if that song ripped with extra silence at the head or tail in error on my CD. Sure enough, Shazam was right, and my disc was wrong: 30 seconds of silence at the end of the track. I am seriously stunned at what a great job Shazam did with such an eclectic disc of music. I knew it was good at the popular stuff, but most of these songs didn't have lyrics (and in some cases, melodies.) Anyway, highly recommended and highly grateful.
Special songs I like.
by Pattycakeb19 on 2020/03/26 17:04
I like to purchase music to play in my car. I do not usually want to buy full albums, but specific songs that I like. What I love about Shazam is that there may be a commercial with a song I like or a movie will feature a certain song. I may not know the correct name or who sings it. All I have do is Shazam it and there it is. I have used it so many times. My playlist for my car is unbelievable. All good songs. Not 30% or 70%, but 100% songs I like. The only bummer is that I used to be able to press purchase And it took me right to the place where I could purchase the song. I can’t do that now or if I can I do not know how. I am not interested in paying a monthly fee for all the music in the world. I want only specific songs and sometimes I might not be able to remember the name. Purchasing is the best option for me!
Shazaman! Searchin!
by allen enriquez on 2018/04/28 23:46
I’ve been using Shazam for over 10 years I barely thought about giving it a review. Not that it really needs it, because many people already know about the app globally. It’s the best app to see what artist/tv/movie/radio is playing! I remembered when I first used it when 3G was barely the next gen with it at these speeds it made it so much better to search for the details without any needs to going the the webpage or anything else it is at your fingertips just one click their is a way to say “Shazam” to start the searching. I am not to sure if it works with everything. Most o the type I find my self just using Siri to do most of my stuff while moving around. It’s a very useful app because you may what to know what movie someone is watching or a friend my want to know without interrupting the movie they can search seamlessly!
Older songs
by momalaaa on 2019/09/27 16:49
I’ve noticed you are using the release date of that certain song which may not be when it was originally released. I know songs released in 60’s and 70’s have this done when album is reissue. I’m having to look up correct year when making year specific play lists. Also, younger people take that as correct & won’t be argued out of it. Would it be a huge problem to add Originally Released showing that year. Shazam doesn’t always recognize older songs. Just finished watching Ken Burns series Country Music and a there were a lot of artists not recognized at all. It seems to not recognize music that’s not mainstream. I don’t tend too listen to mainstream all the time. Local groups aren’t noticed sometimes either even ef they’ve had a few albums out. Shazam not too bad keeping up with massive amount of music there is today. I just get annoyed sometimes when I can’t find the words to that dang song that’s playing right now!
Classical and Modern Serious Music.
by Harvey Kongsgaard on 2018/08/26 17:30
I absolutely love Shazam. I also love all types of music but especially classical music and especially of the modern genre. I play keyboards and was brought up playing an antique Harmonium (a pedal reed organ) and in a short time became accomplished enough to be the Assistant Organist for a large Presbyterian Church in the Twin City suburb town of Hastings MN. We had a small seven rank but very powerful Pipe Organ which was absolutely a GAS to play full organ even tho I had to sort of wing it on the full 32 note pedal keyboard. Now getting back to my review of Shazam. I think your App comes up short in identifying classical musical tracks and albums. Most serious music lovers prefer to know the Composer first before they know who are the Artists or Artist. I do wish Shazam would provide much more Info on the Classical Music tracks (PLEASE) but thanx a whole lot for what you do do.
I’ve Been Shazam—otized !!!!
by CeceLady on 2018/11/24 01:52
This is the bestest app ever PEOPLE! If you want to know the name of a song and artist this is the app you want. It is so accurate and on point. I always keep Shazam open in the background because I love any kind of music that sounds good to me since I don’t have a preference in music my playlist varies and this is how I use it .......when I am listening to the radio and a new song comes on and I have never heard that song....BAAM! I SHAZAM IT RIGHT AWAY!!!! when a car goes by with a good song that I like, or when I go into any business to shop and they’re playing some nice song I immediately SHAZAM IT......I love the fact that I it also finds latin music not only English music and the app is able to find both languages, and even classical music, well the list goes on. I love it and use it basically everyday. ❤️❤️❤️❤️😊
Life changer
by Magicmiketooo on 2019/03/17 19:50
Whoever created this app purely genius and only for the people who really enjoy music. People can tell you that the Love music, but people who really enjoy music Will tell you how music can change their mood around if they’re happy you can make them sad, if they’re sad or upset you can make them happy. These kind of people, allows the music to get inside her heart and soul those are the true believers of sound of music. Which is a great movie by the way a.k.a.. So thank you , Shazam you’ve allowed me to download music from anywhere I go to the department store, elevator, just listen to the music in your car, I can finally do you know who’s singing that song in actually have it downloaded it onto my Music list. Finally someone who is developed this app understands what I’m saying about music. Blanco
One of My Top 5 Apps
by Dallas halsey on 2019/12/02 14:36
I LOVE THIS APP. I’m always on the hunt for new music and this app helps me do that! I love how I can be out and about, hear a song, hold up my phone, and in less than five seconds I’ve learned what it is. And it can seriously hear the song even if you’re out in a public place and the music isn’t that loud! Let me give you a few examples. I was in a busy chipotle and it gave me the song title. I was in a lens crafter and could barely hear the speaker myself. And there was this song from this short 1 minute video where my friend is talking over the song and all you can hear in the background is the melody but I was like OMG WHAT IS THAT SONG and I thought there was no way the app would be able to get it because the song was so subtle but low and behold it discovered it! DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!
3.5 stars
by 12356890673Abi on 2018/08/31 04:59
The live music lyrics could be better. Like I don’t understand why it hears the lyrics and recognizes if it is an a wrong place and “catches up”, but really, it doesn’t recognize if it’s paused? Can’t even hear any music but it continues as if it does. Pointless feature. And I appreciate that it has lyrics, but some popular songs don’t. They should sync to more than one website for lyrics. The ads aren’t personalized either, and honestly I wish it was. I don’t mind a clothing ad geared towards my interests every now and then, but constantly seeing the same add for AHS Apocalypse while trying to look at lyrics for my worship songs... I keep covering it up with my hands as I read bc I don’t want those kind of frightening images in my head. Being personalized ads, even just variety would be nicer. Don’t want to see the same ad every time I Shazam a song. And auto Shazam doesn’t work that well either
Great app when it works!
by Mathew71 on 2017/12/13 20:53
This app is literally part of my daily routine so I use it quite a lot. However recently I’ve been noticing when I go to play a song using Apple Music through Shazam the entire app just stops working on my iPhone. So I figured it was just my phone acting up but then I went to use it on my iPad and the exact thing happened when I went to the map and tried playing a song. Also a lot of small things about the user interface will just stop working like the back buttons and scrolling on a page. It’s to the point every time after I Shazam a song and try to either add it to Apple Music or Olay it I have to close the app and restart it. Overall I love the app just wish I could use it a bit longer without having to restart it!
Several Issues
by Proteus 846 on 2017/10/06 04:44
Shazam is a very useful tool, but it does have some issues in this version. For starters, I’d like to modify Notifications Settings… but the link in the app takes me to the front page of Settings and there’s no panel for Shazam available on my new phone. Additionally, when upgrading to a new iPhone I lost access to the ad-free experience I bought into years ago with the since-depreciated Shazam Encore. I’m using the same account as before, but I have ads now… I’ve submitted a ticket and am waiting to hear back. A final complaint would be with Facebook integration. Most apps now show me a page asking to sign in with the Facebook app, which takes me there to authenticate; Shazam, on the other hand, wants me to sign in directly in the app instead of taking me to the Facebook app to do so; this is less secure, sends my data through Shazam for additional lost security, and is just not the way I want to do things. Security and privacy are important in today’s world, and Shazam needs to add simple support for Facebook’s newer secure-authentication system. Other than those issues and occasional minor bugs, Shazam works great. Aside from the emails about the top charts that I can’t seem to turn off in the app for some reason, I enjoy using Shazam and it has proven extremely helpful in identifying music on many occasions.
Most Reliable App Ever Made!!
by Salty girl on 2019/10/11 23:45
Since day one and what seems like endless apps downloaded since apps were created, Shazam has been that constant, that rock, that reliable friend. This app has been with me throughout the years and hasn’t failed, hasn’t been stuck in some circling mode of hell or crashed. Sure, maybe it’s had some hiccups getting some songs incorrect or versions of certain songs but we all have hiccups! Shazam you have helped me be mom o’ the year and always knowing the song 😉. You didn’t stop there either- you went further with letting me sing along!! It doesn’t get better than this app. Thanks Shazam, we are super cool together! Please stay this way. Add a trivia guessing game and BOOM outta the ballpark. Stay away from bugs. Stay safe. Continue to be awesome!! Love, Mom SHAZAM ROCKS!
Too many changes, too much Greed $$’s
by Colorado0so on 2019/11/28 04:26
When Shazam app first came out, IT was a fantastic product!! and you could Shazam a song on radio, in a car, on TV... and listen to it “”all”” later & see lyrics, share complete song/video with family & friends.... it was a 5-star App... after it was sold... purchased and changed & compromised by ? Apple ... ? ?new ownership.. the immediate Greed for money appeared and then extra music fees, purchases, memberships tainted this once useful App... greed, yes, greed... absolutely destroyed the once marvelous features and freedom of use and listen to songs, many saved & shared.. & CD’s purchased at retailers... Family & friends tell me they seldom use it since all the changes and restrictions and new, greedy charges imposed/required to ‘checkout a song’. I’d have to say... that’s what killed its once, highly rated popularity... Apple Music and Spotfy biggest issues I hear about...$$$’s Good luck !
Reading my mind
by soundz4senses on 2019/01/24 18:40
Shazam has been around for a long time and throughout its development what’s amazing to me is how it has kept up, not only with contemporaneous music but also music from antiquity. There are other amazing apps for music out there - think radioooo - But Shazam really defines the music discovery app process. I only wish that there could be a one button or step process to acquiring the music easily. I’d happily pay a dollar for every song I’ve Shazammed. If they can figure that out a lot of money will be made and a lot of musicians and music lovers will be happy. Musicians because hopefully they’ll get paid for their efforts and music lovers because they’ll have access to the music that they have discovered with Shazam. Well done and keep up the good work.
😁😍😃AMAZING 😃😍😁
by #StrawberryLemonade on 2019/06/27 17:41
Omg Shazam is AMAZING it works so fast and it even has the options to l’est en to the song in Apple Music and to read the lyrics and so much else! Honestly I would like to point out how hard this programming must have been. They work so hard! As for if you are thinking about getting it I recommend this to people of all ages really. There is really nothing to worry about for kids. And it is so helpful. At any time you can have it Listen to a song. I even did this when there were people talking over the music and it still worked. I recommend this app so much! It even works if ur playing songs on ur own and phone which is weird but helpful when using airplay sometimes. Very helpful. And approximate time and effort they have put into this app.
Really Good!
by Venezuelan Melomaniac... on 2018/12/24 16:32
Nowadays there’s a bunch of apps that perform the same function as Shazam... but they’re the pioneers so I’ve remained with them without even thinking about using something else, and I’ve seen some of those others apps not finding a tune’s name while Shazam is already offering to you the option of playing it through ITunes ...isn’t that pure sweet love? I’ve even find out the name of songs that are been played live! (Of course only with high performance artist/or people using some sampling tracks a long their shows). I’m not a write-reviews-guy ... but for Shazam I decided to do it in gracefully recognition of major gift that is for a music lover to be able to identify new music everyday, anytime and anywhere for years now! 1000% recommended ! 🙏🏽❤️ Peace ya’ll!
Could Be Better
by Davidmaxbaker123 on 2018/01/17 10:00
It IS very useful in finding out the track name, artist, album of a great many songs. It DOES have a few flaws. One flaw is that it occasionally gets a song completely wrong, or associates it with another artist, but that is probably less that 1 % of the time. Another quirk which I don't like is that it frequently defaults to a newer CD compilation album release for a song when what I really wanted was the original album and it's song listings. One thing I like about it is its ability to display an album title exactly how you need to label it in iTunes in order for iTunes to be able to find the album artwork. If your title is just one character off from Shazam, iTunes won't find the artwork and you have to enter it manually. Fix the glitches I described, and it's a five-star app in my book.
I love this application
by Mad Mike Max on 2019/05/08 23:48
Like stated above, I love this application,,but,, and it is a BIG but, if you are trying to learn how to sing a song, hence the reason this application failed to get that 5th Star. That missing 5th Star is because when you identify a song and it has the “Lyrics” button to depress, after you tag that song. I the lyrics tend to lag a little behind the spoken/sung word(s). This short coming tends to leave one/you guessing what is to be sung next and has you from time to time playing “CATCH UP” with that song, if lyrics are unknown to you. If you could program this application to show you the next line of song lyrics at LEAST a split second before the song lyrics are sung ,, “THAT WOULD BE GREAT”, and for CERTAIN would gain you the 5th illusive Star.
Thank you!
by Digital Learning Specialist on 2018/06/19 02:17
Shazam! I do not have enough thank full words for your team. I’ve been using the app for as long as I can remember, but I’ve finally decided to give back to you and post a review. First off, the free aspect is incredible. I hate to say this, but it’s such an incredible app that I’d have no problem paying for what’s free. Next, thanks to the app, I have danced and grooved much harder, because now I can find the music my heart craves! Third, I love the fact that I can prove to my husband I know more music than he does (we use Shazam to Test). Ha. I could list 100 reasons why this software seems to be some of the more radical to hit the market, but I’ll just summarize w a deep and heart-felt thank you for your passion and vision. Amazing app. Works beautifully. Many thumbs up.
I wish I could put ZERO STARS
by Saaoyx on 2019/07/29 18:21
I do not understand how people are getting what they want with this app. I thought this app would work to find “that song” for me, guess what? It didn’t. I got this app thinking it would be great, because the reviews are fantastic. The only thing I like about this app is that it doesn’t cost wasted money (at least I can just throw it away). I don’t know about anyone else, but I believe lots of people are also getting Shazam because the app itself made it seem impressive. When I first opened Shazam, I wanted to play around with it, so I sang Happy Birthday. Who doesn’t know Happy Birthday? Apparently Shazam didn’t. Then I got confused and tried it again, it still didn’t work. I finally decided to sing my song I wanted to know the name of (I still don’t know the name of). It didn’t work. Voice recognition is very helpful and accessible, but Shazam sadly couldn’t be with that. It shows how badly great inventions like voice recognition can be used for.
This is an awesome app... but mine has been glitching!
by Lysie Lou on 2018/06/23 04:39
I love this app, I’ve had it since it first came out. I like that I can link it to face book, share cool songs that I found on my face book feed or to individual friends. I can even look up the lyrics to the songs that I Shazam. However, for about a month now when ever I go to “my Shazam” to look at the the songs I discovered it kicks me out the app immediately. I have even tried signing out so I could sign back in, in the hopes that it would reset the app... that didn’t help. So I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it again. That didn’t work! So it is for this reason I’m am rating the app 2 stars. It is extremely annoying that I can’t use the app to its fullest. Especially when I enjoyed using the app the way it was intended prior to this issue. So if the developers can fix this glitch I would be happy to give this a app a 5 star rating-once again.
Great App!! Very Helpful!!
by john h6212 on 2019/09/26 06:06
App is great it’s very helpful when your trying to figure out the name of a song that is on the tip of your tounge, or who sings the song Shazam is there to help with that in a matter of seconds. I’ve used this app for a long time with all of the songs I’ve Shazam’d I’ve only had one issue, I think it was just a glitch it gave me a completely different song 2 times in a row and then the 3rd time it popped up, I haven’t had an issue since, I’ve also had a few app upgrades over the time period too. I honestly think since it was a song in a movie the talking and other background noise threw it off l, but I love this app!! I’ve only had the one issue and no other problems since the one mess up.
Fork to my Plate
by nvthree on 2018/12/02 09:06
I've been a user since 2009. If music holds any sway in your daily life, Shazam is the fork to your dinner plate. Growing a product from a true mvp to what it is today, over (?) years has to be hard. There's been versions of Shazam I've passionately hated. In hindsight, I could only hate it because was so helpful. Today, so many others use this app just like I do, to record and put name to the soundtrack of their life so they can bring that music back on demand whenever they want. For the last couple years this app has been soundly built. Its my go to for creating playlists and It's connected to my music library. Shazam is how I enhance my time with my family and friends, building the musical backdrop for the best times of my life.
Could be great but doesn’t get the ones you really need
by TxSage17 on 2018/11/23 19:16
I use Shazam just to keep track of songs I like that I know & to test it. It usually fails. When I Don’t know one & love it & really want to find out who it is - Shazam comes up empty. I wish there was some way to store the music so that if it is ever added to the database it will let you know. Currently there is no way of tracking how many it has failed you on. Just now I tried it on Alice’s Restaurant. I expected it to come right up but it could never get it! How can it not recognize an Arlo Guthrie song that has been around for 50 years? The other thing I would like is for it to give the Original release date & album. I don’t care if it was later on a compilation. So it is really fairly useless for most of us but I still play with it & keep hoping they will add these features ...
THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MUSIC LOVERS
by BriggsMultimedia on 2019/09/14 12:35
SHAZAM IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MUSIC LOVERS SINCE iTunes. I listen to music much of the day. Whether I’m in my car, at home, on an aircraft, on a Caribbean Sea vessel, my music is on! What Shazam does for me is to identify music with which I’m unfamiliar in an instant. And the best feature is one I only recently “discovered!” As I heard new music, I used to run for my phone with the Shazam app to position it to pick up the audio. But I listen to so much of my music via my iPhone! I just discovered that I can simply click on Shazam while any music is playing in my phone from any source. Shazam identifies it instantly! Before the ding has finished playing from some radio station in the world, Shazam has made it possible for me to download it!!!!
Exactly as One Would Hope!
by N3UMY3R on 2019/07/16 14:22
I loath being asked to review. I don’t mind giving my ‘star-rating,’ but anything more dissuades me. HOWEVER, the folks at Shazam deserve praise. As a music-lover and a musician this app is invaluable. It is incredibly competent and accurate at its job! Thank you folks for your brilliance in helping me identify songs in a music world that is now populated with probably the largest volume of “recorded” classic, indie, and DIY artists in the history of our civilization. Just 30 years ago the task of your app would have been daunting, however now it seems to me it should be insurmountable, yet you guys are accomplished at the task. Making my life easier and my iTunes playlist evolving and diverse. Thank you seems insufficient. Regardless, thank you!
Great all around music application.

The icon on this application is extremely recognizable thanks to its popularity and promotion. It has a 4.9/5 stars on the APP store and it deserves it for its simplicity. Its descreption is simple and clear and does not get much more user friendly than this as you simply push a single button and the APP listens to the song and sends it back to you. Its target audience is defined as anyone who loves music. Its stand out characteristics and content is simply how easy it is to use and how effective it gets the job done. This APP is free for all users. It is innovative in the sense that once you start up the application, all you have to see is the opening page, which is one giant button, making navigation very easy.
Seriously though...

I don’t write reviews. I don’t care that much tbh. However this app is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Yeah I know it sounds sad. However, this app has brought me music I find just the last lyrics on. It’s fast and smooth and saves everything so I don’t have to remember it. This app has brought me music I would have never gone the extra mile to listen too. Bringing me to experiences I’ve never had. Even with no WiFi it saves what it’s hearing. It’s crazy. I was feeling down and I heard this song I used the app on a while back. I looked it up on this app and found something that is almost like personal therapy. I’ve recommended it to all my friends there’s just no beating something as convenient as this.
Shazam Is Awesome!
by Hooked on Butterflies on 2018/05/15 21:13
I absolutely love Shazam! My daughter told me about it, so I downloaded it. When new songs play on the radio, the DJs never say the name of the song or artist, so it takes a while to learn who sings them. With Shazam, I never have to worry about it anymore! I’ve used it for TV shows to find out the song and artist and also in a store when they are playing music over the sound system. I have a party every year and start collecting music so I can play it during the party. All I have to do is go to “My Shazam” file to look at all the songs I Shazamed and make my playlist. Sometimes, I can’t understand the words to the song and I’m able to go to the lyrics tab to look them up. It’s the coolest App ever!
Poor UX. Hard to Shazam after the first Shazam.
by simplegray on 2018/02/22 23:00
This app does one thing and that one thing is not present on any page in this app after your first Shazam. So dumb. More — The “Shazam” button exists only on the launch page. Once you Shazam and it finds the track, you are forever stuck on the details page of that song. It doesn’t reset back to the Shazam page, ever. And it doesn’t let you swipe to go back (sorry iPhone Plus and X users). If you come back 3 days later to Shazam a song quickly, you’ll still be stuck on the last track you Shazam’d and no quick Shazam button access (read: no ability to Shazam). The only way to do it is to hit little tiny back arrow button perfectly to go back. I have missed so many Shazam chances because I opened Shazam, it lands on the details page of a song I Shazam’d days ago, and I couldn’t quickly hit back with one hand on my phone. Beautifully designed app, poorly thought out UX.
NOT what it use to be. 👎🙁
by x-_-paiN-_- on 2017/10/29 04:48
Shazam use to be fast & easy after the updates now it takes for ever and it hardly ever finds songs on tv like on movies any more. Specially if not in English or recent songs. I run iPhone 6+ 128 GB so it's not because of space. I miss the sound waves it use to have. Had to try 7 times to find a Willie Nelson song and for another one after 10 attempts I gave up. Developers please make Shazam what it use to be, it doesn't have to be all pretty face as is now I use to spend a lot of time at a time on the app would stay on for 2 - 3 hours listening to music from Shazam but now it's so slow. Also I want to get paid version but how can I if I'm not happy with what I see. Please go back or re update but fix.
This is amazing really
by kylie_nope on 2019/12/25 20:18
I love this app so much, I really liked this song at a party and I didn’t know what it was and I asked my friend and she whipped out Shazam and told me the name of the song and I was amazed. I immediately downloaded it and it’s so cool. It will take around 2 seconds for it to recognize the song and it will add it to your Apple Music if you want it to. It will also tell you who it is by, and how many Shazam’s it’s had. This app also doesn’t even require the voice of the person singing to know the song. It requires no sign up so you can just download and use it right away. This app is incredible and I really love it so you should give it a try!!!! Plus, it’s totally free!!! I love it so much! You should try!!
Works great but could be even better if...
by kaavik on 2018/02/24 15:48
They added Shazam button on all screens - especially the song screen (after successful Shazam) and the MyShazams screen. Call me lazy, but it is a pain to click ‘X’ or figure out how to go back to the main Shazam button screen. It’s only one extra step for the user, but it is an inconvenience and you could create an even better user experience with easier access to Shazam’s core functionality (recognizing music!) from anywhere in the app. BTW, I am a long-time premium user and don’t want to enable the auto-Shazam feature as I only want to know and keep record of songs that I really like. Basically, MyShazams is like my musical wish list for song purchases.
Finds songs scary fast
by tulleymay on 2019/08/31 04:07
I feel like hell is hearing an amazing song and not being able to find the name of it. However, Shazam will reach down into the burning depths of hell and pluck you out safely to the melody of your new favorite song, with the name and artist attached to it. In .1463 seconds, it will find the song you are looking for, even if it’s the part of the song that’s basically silent, or sounds like 10 million other songs. Shazam knows. Shazam knows the song you’re looking for, the thoughts in your head, your deepest darkest secret, the first time you masturbated, and the when and how of your death. Shazam knows all, and it knows in .1463 seconds or less. It is omnipotent; omniscient... and a hell of an app I guess.
Shazam ANYTHING (literally)
by Busyfresh2000 on 2018/06/07 00:24
This is a great app to use to identify ALMOST every song ever, although there are those tracks that no matter how many times you shazam them they won't be identified, even if you know the song and just want to know the artist. My one gripe with this app is that it doesn't match up the tracks properly; it says it's this song, but in reality you know it isn't and you shazam it a few more times, and then the proper song is matched...all in all it's a very useful app, doesn't take much space, and usually can get a match first try... 3.5 out of a possible 5 from me, but I had to give it a 4 due to the fact I can't click on only a half star. This app is 👌 by me... -Busyfresh2000
Not as smart as you’d think
by Aste Spumante on 2017/11/06 01:49
Shazam (at least for me) takes a long time to open to the point where it’s possible to press the Shazam button. Then, it takes a while to recognize the song. Often, a song ends before it can do all that. What usually happens is that I hear a song, then decide in the course of listening that I want to identify it. Then, the above happens and the song ends without being identified. I feel like I’m supposed to start Shazam-ing as soon as the song starts. That doesn’t seem realistic since I need to hear at least some of the song to know that I want to know more about it. Also, it’s not as smart as a human. It seems to recognize data embedded in the song rather than the actual characteristics of the music. If you Shazam a live performance of a well-known song—say, a performance on an NPR show—it will not recognize it.
Complaint about Shazam
by Gio22447 on 2019/12/26 21:27
While I was talking on the phone today I tried to delete a song on my Shazam Library and I clicked the three vertical dots of that song. I clicked “remove from Shazam library” at least five times and nothing happened. Once I hung up the phone and went back to library I noticed it deleted five songs from my Shazam Library. This isn’t cool since it gives people the misconception that the song wasn’t deleted and they can continuously click delete only to find out after, that, they deleted multiple songs. Either enhance the system to allow deleting a song while on a call or display an error message saying “error unable to delete a song while on cellular data, etc.” One of the five songs from my library which was deleted, as a result of this bs, was a song I was searching for for over 5 years and now it’s lost forever and I don’t remember the name of that artist.
Amazing Music App!
by t.jmax on 2020/01/03 05:54
I love this app, it is so awesome, and here’s why: First of all, I’m a music LOVER. And this is a great way to be in contact with music. When I’m watching you tube, I hear music that I really love. I want it on my playlist of course, but I don’t know the title of it and I get really sad. Untell this app was released, I would use this app every day, and I still do. And I can get any song I hear basically. I LOVE IT 🥰 When ever I want a song I hear, Shazam is great, it’s easy. I take my iPad always on the go, and I get ten songs on my playlist every day basically. I hope you all love this app, because I totally do! Who ever made this app, I give credit. Thank you so Much for reading! Bye now. P.s. I love horses and my horse Bokaloh says hi bye😏😘
The Best!
by Cardin K on 2019/05/20 04:48
This is the best app I’ve ever used to help name those songs! If you guys want a feature suggestion, it would be to display a list of several songs with their perspective percentage match for what you’re recording. For example: 97.4% match this song...... 22.7% match this song...... 14.2% match this song...... ...... (and so forth) ....... Atleast, this would be something I would add to my app (if I knew how to make one). Because basically, on occasion when Shazam just can’t correctly name a song, it may be useful for us to see the top most likely songs it could be, and we could go through each of them to see if any of them are the one we are looking for. Also, with a feature like that it’d also be good to receive updates live, like after every second (and as the app hears more of the song) it updates it’s list of percentages of what song it’s likely to be. Updating live so that you can continue to shazam as long as you want, and the longer of a shazam, the more likely you are to see the correct song at the top of the list. ... Just a suggestion to make the app better!
Not dependable
by handmethefrench on 2018/09/29 03:54
This app only needs to do one thing: tell me what the name of the present song is. It’s not that difficult. Songs don’t last forever, and by the time you realize you like the song, you probably only have a few moments to capture the song with an app, as you juggle with driving your car and getting away from any background noise. Yet, this app cannot the only thing it needs to do. It struggles to load every time, before eventually the button doesn’t respond at all to the touch. If you think updating the app might make it work, you’d be wrong. Admittedly, this might not normally merit the time to draft a negative review, but there’s nothing quite so annoying as having precious few seconds to capture a song and then having your dedicated app fail at its only job. If anyone from the Shazam bureaucracy is reading this, please make whatever simplifications are necessary to this app to make it work.
Simply the best!
by gman7704 on 2017/09/26 17:53
No matter where I am whether it's the supermarket on the road or at a friends house, if I hear a song I like I break out the phone and hit Shazam and bam, I have that song in seconds! Sometimes Shazam can even catch a song with only the few remaining beats as the song is about to go off! I've had Shazam for as long as I've owned my iPhone (yrs) and I can only remember twice that it did not recognize a song: Once because it was a very old Blues song (the song was old as dirt)! And once at a nightclub, I suspect it was because the FJ was mixing and it couldn't pick up the track.. But overall, life without Shazam would be a bummer! I really love this app! Sincerely! It's simply the best!
Instant Gratification
by susanac201 on 2017/10/19 00:21
The first time I learned about Shazam, I was in a music store and heard a song that I liked but didn't know who sang it or what it was called. My friend said, "just 'Shazam' it," and I looked at her like she was nuts. "Shazam? Isn't that what a genie says when granting your wish?" She laughed and showed me -- artist, song, album -- right on her phone. Like magic. If your wish is to discover music, Shazam is your personal genie. Just tap the button and "Shazam!" All the information you need, including the lyrics, instantly appears on your phone. Tap another button and the song or even the entire album is downloading! I love it for its ease of use and reliability. Don't wait for a genie, just Shazam!
Use this app more than once a day
by Draped In Crimson on 2018/12/14 20:59
To help me create fantastic playlists, buy some of the best music, and to discover sounds perhaps out of my sphere which I use to grow that great roundness & richness of my life. Only problem: it’s not ALL KNOWING. Had some disappointments trying to find choral music, or something symphonic, or not from our usual sources: like The Dmitri Petrovski Singers, or well-known Mozart choral pieces, which is disappointing, because I don’t know all the great composers by heart. And sometimes, when watching tv, trying to Shazam a song while dialogue is also apparent is too difficult, and therefore lost, to my great despair. I hope further iterations will allow me to help distinguish one from the other.
Shazam is my Jam
by Darbren on 2018/09/15 03:58
I LOVE Shazam I use it daily, reminiscing about the good old days or Loving on the New Indie Pop, Folk Music, R&B Or " Let It Be" Shazam is ALWAYS there for me😘 & rarely do I Shazam a song you don't have in your Bank!!! It can become tricky with local Jokers and Particular genres LIKE OUR INFAMOUS NEVER MISTAKEN CAJUN/Zydeco Music From Louisiana which I absolutely LOVE ❤️ Like... Wayne Toups, Jamie Bergeron, (Keith Frank) Yeah!!!oh no scratch Keith He like's to TAUNT Caucasian Music TOO MUCH LOL he'd play into a song everyone would sing😊then Stop (Now tell me whose prejudice when I'm standing there loving your style and stuff then stop & Laugh and go into R&B? What you say??? Still love him though 🤗 From the Stylistics, to the Carpenters, Led-Zeppelin to Doris Day. Rely on Shazam For your Music it's no Faux-Pais! "Que Sera Sera"
