Have You Heardle of It?

A while ago, I wrote about a word game called Wordle where you had to guess a five-letter word within six guesses with no clues. Basically, if you had the right letter in the wrong spot, it turns yellow. If you get the right letter in the right spot, it turns green. But really you need to play it for yourself to get the gist of it.

Well, now I’ve discovered a similar game involving snippets of songs. You get one second on the first try, and on subsequent guesses you get a little more. In all, you get six tries to figure out the song. It’s called Heardle.

There are multitude of different variations. You get a version of the game for every decade going back to the 60s. It’s a bit tricky, even if you are up on your music. There have been times where I recognized the song but didn’t know the name or the artist. Other times, I knew it within the first second.

Basically, it’s addicting. As with Wordle, there are many versions of the game, but the real one is heardle.app. That’s the legit site where you can only play once a day.

Go there and get started guessing those songs. You will thank me later.
