GoogleFu: What’s That Song?

Looking for the name of that song that just played on the radio? Look no farther than Google.

Type the lyrics that you remember for sure (now’s not the time to guess) and surround them in double-quotation marks (“), like this:

“please allow me to introduce myself”

Then click search. The first three results for my example search all return “Sympathy for the Devil” by the Rolling Stones. Its that easy.

Hone Your Google-Fu

I am frequently asked questions which I can find the answer to in the first page of Google search results. It struck me that people must not know how to search effectively.

In the coming weeks, I will be writing a series of articles on how to make the most of your searches with Google. I will show how to identify the song you’ve heard on the radio, search for information about specific people (filtering out similarly-named people you’re not interested in), and much more.
