    Has anyone heard of this?
    Basically, what it is, is that you ring up 2580 on your mobile, then it asks you to point your mobile at the music that you are listening to, it listens to it for 20 seconds, then it sends you a text back after 20 seconds saying what the song is called and who the author is. It is so so cool, it has helped me find the names of loads of songs, so if you are ever stuck to find out the name of a song, then i suggest that way. :cool:

    But the whole point of using shazam is that you do not know the song, so a lyric search would not always work.
