How to Search for a Song by Its Lyrics
Not knowing the name of a song can be frustrating, and it can make an earworm catch on even more. Luckily, if you know some of the lyrics, it’s pretty easy to find the name of a song by the words.
By far the easiest way to find a song by its words is to type the lyrics that you remember into the search bar of a search engine. If some of the lyrics are in the title or the lyrics are fairly unique, you’ll probably get a direct hit right away. If not, try adding “lyrics” or “song” to your search terms. There are plenty of lyrics sites out there, so using those terms helps pull those up. Doing a search often also pulls up music videos, which is great if that song is really stuck in your head.
Search a Lyrics Site
If you’re not having any luck with a search engine, you can try searching on lyrics sites. Most let you search by artist, song title and lyrics. Type the phrase that you remember into the search bar to pull up a list of songs with the closest match by keywords. If you only remember snippets, you can even try searching by keywords.
Finding a Song Title From a Recording
If you can’t remember enough of the words, just wait until the next time you hear it. Download a music recognition app onto your phone and run the app. These programs have huge databases of music and use algorithms to listen to recordings and name the song. Unless the song is very obscure or it’s a cover, they can usually find the name.
Finding a Song Title by Melody
The algorithms that recognize songs are becoming more sophisticated, which means that you don’t even always need a professional recording to find the title of a song. Apps can find titles by melody, which means that all you need to do is hum into your phone’s microphone to pull up a list of potential titles. How successful this will be depends on how well you can carry a tune, but it’s still a handy tool.
Finding a Song by Notes
If you have some musical skills, you can also search for songs by the notes they use. Some search engines are built specifically for musicians to help them find song names. You can enter the notes by using the keyboard search tool to get more precise matches or by using the contour search if you’re not sure exactly how it goes.

- View history
The Revelation of the Ringwraiths is a poem written by Philippa Boyens ( Peter Jackson 's screenplay assistant) which was used as the lyrics to the Ringwraiths' theme in Howard Shore 's music of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring . Portions of the text are heard in five tracks out of the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack : " The Shadow of the Past ", " The Black Rider ", " At the Sign of the Prancing Pony ", " A Knife in the Dark ", and " Flight to the Ford ".
The Adûnaic words, which David Salo had translated from the English poem, are sung operatically by men of The London Voices in the soundtrack.
Nêbâbîtham Magânanê Nêtabdam dâur-ad Nêpâm nêd abârat-aglar îdô Nidir nênâkham Bârî’n Katharâd
Translation [ ]
We renounce our Maker. We cleave to the darkness. We take unto ourselves the power and glory. Behold! We are the Nine, The Lords of Unending Life.
A different translation is speculated at SoundtrackLyrics.com :
We refused our creator We went towards darkness We were handed strength and glory, Now Sauron we approach Lords of All lands'
