With the popularity of word-guessing game Wordle, launched in Oct. 2021, its format soon expanded into interesting variations. One of them, Heardle, is a musical guessing game that vaguely resembles 2012 hit SongPop combined with Wordle’s format.

Each day, Heardle will play snippets of the intro to a different song by “a long list of popularly streamed artists,” according to the game’s website. The first snippet is one second long, and that is all you get if you want to guess correctly on the first try. From the second snippet on, they get progressively longer until the sixth and final try, which will play 16 seconds of the song. You can also skip a few tries if you feel like the snippet is too short, but be careful or you might end up with no guesses left.

Although all the songs in Heardle’s database are by popular artists on streaming services, it can still be hard to guess, especially if you don’t regularly listen to mainstream music or the radio. If you find yourself stuck, trying to remember where exactly you heard that intro before, a few hints about the song and artist might help. 

Fortunately, we’ve got you covered.
