By Daniel Hatter ; Updated September 15, 2017

Have you ever heard an amazing song on the radio and just had to find out what its name was so you could listen to it again? If you can remember a phrase or small portion of the lyrics, you just might should be able to find the title using Lyrster’s song and artist locator. The site claims to be "a music search engine indexing 350 plus lyrics websites.” So if someone, somewhere has posted the lyrics online, there's a good chance Lyrster has it.

Visit Lyrster.com. The site is free and does not require registration.

Type a phrase or portion of lyrics into the field provided. Depending on the phrase you use, you may get quite a few results. The longer the phrase, the more your results will be narrowed down. This will make it easier to find the song you’re looking for.

Press “Find my song” to conduct your search. If the phrase you entered was correct, your song will be among the displayed results. Scroll through the list (if necessary) and select the correct song. As an example, do you know the name of the song that goes with the lyrics "once I rose above the noise and confusion?" The No. 1 result on Lyrster is "Carry On My Wayward Son." No matter how short or long your phrase is, as long as it is entered correctly, you will get the result you're looking for.
