Ever have a song stuck in your head but you just can't remember the name?  Have you ever been in a restaurant and heard a song you really liked, but didn't know who sang it?  Well, the creators of SoundHound, a music recognition app apparently feel your pain.

In the mode of Shazam, SoundHound  quickly recognizes and identifies a song through your mobile device.
