This is one you can do. And it's going to make a bucketload of cash.
It's called Tyoodle.
It's basically Google, but instead of finding amusing cat pictures, it finds that tune that's been stuck in your head for 5 days straight and tells you.
- WHO originally sang it!
- WHERE the fuck it's from!
- WHAT other bands have used the bloody thing as a sample to trick you into thinking that the original artist isn't the original artist!
- ALL of the movies and TV shows it's been used in!
"Da na na nuh nuh, naa na na na na"
To a microphone-based query where you can simply sing the tune straight at your computer and Tyoodle will analyse your tune and find your mystery song!
[sings into licensed Tyoodle mic]: Den den den-nah nah nah nah nana/Den na na na naahh
Money for Nothing
This is also especially helpful for instrumentals. Observe:
[sings into licensed Tyoodle mic]: "bip bop bip bop bip bop bip/bip bop bip bop bip bop bip/bip bop bipa bipa bop bipa bipa bop bipa bipa bop bip"
Then you just have the link to iTunes or Amazon or both and Cha-CHING! (Tyoodle result: Money - Pink Floyd).
So 327, stop messing around with whatever it is you're doing and spend a weekend getting this thing off the ground. I've already done all the heavy mental lifting, you can just get coding and next winter we'll be warming ourselves with flaming $100 notes.
