Neither method is any good when you're trying to identify an instrumental, though. I've got several running through my head -- they've been there for decades -- that I know I'll never be able to identify because I have no idea of the artists and I can't carry a tune in the proverbial bucket.

    Thanks!
    Instrumentals used to give me fits! We had an automated FM station near me (one that I later worked for!) back in the pre-internet age. Whenever they played something that I was not familiar with, I could usually figure out the title and look it up in my Whitburn book. Not so with instrumentals, of course! (Later, when I worked for that same station, I could usually use the Whitburn book to look up anything that a listener might call about. Of course, that was usually rather rare for me by then, because I usually knew who sang what!)

    Yes. Instrumentals. About 8 years ago, my daughter collected hundreds of songs on computer- mostly old rock and roll and pop. Though she was only in her late 20s then, she has an old soul, or something, because she had some great 60's, and even 50's rock. But she failed to label a couple hundred. I spent an afternoon Googling the lyrics, and was able to quickly identify 90% of them. But all her instrumental surf music...no go.
