If you have the lyrics of a song stuck in your head, but cannot recall its name, you can use the Internet to find the title. Although a general search engine can work, the most efficient way to find a song title is to use a website designed specifically for this task. Songlyrics.com, Lyricsfly.com and Findbylyrics.com are among the many that contain song lyrics and a way to search their data by even a phrase or two from a song lyric.
