Perform an internet search, including song title and other information you may have about the song. Search the song title with the place you first discovered the song. For example, if you watched the music video on a popular TV show, enter the song title and program name in the search engine.
Search the title plus All the information you have about the style or genre of the song about step 1 does not generate results. For example, if you’re trying to find a solo vocal version of the song ‘Skylark’, type ‘skylark, a cappella’ in the search engine.
Collect and organize your search results. Take some time on the ‘search results’ page to note some instances where the song title is associated with an artist’s name. Keep an eye on any correct names immediately before or after the song title. Note all artist names you find.
Limit your results by reviewing them on an online music service. Find an online music service that allows you to search their directory and preview songs for free (ie free.napster.com). Do a search with the name of each artist you found in step 2. Browse through the search results until you find the title of the song you are on. Preview the songs under each artist name until you find the song you are looking for.
Finding a song on the Internet often requires the title of the song and the name of the artist. If you only have the title, you need to do some research to find the song you want, not just a song with the same title. By searching for extra information associated with the song title and then narrowing down your search results, you can often find the only song you are looking for.
