How many oh-ohs would it take for you to recognize Taylor Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down”? Or guitar licks to identify Lenny Kravitz’s “American Woman”? If you’re awesome at naming songs from short snippets, you’ll crush the competition in SongPop 3.
How it plays: Choose a challenger—a friend, a relative, or even a lyrics-loving stranger—then pick a playlist. Listen to brief song clips, then tap the correct artist or title. The most correct answers wins—and speed counts!
Why we love it: Talk about eclectic taste! SongPop 3’s deep catalog of over 100,000 songs spans everything from ’80s new wave to ’90s rap to 2000s rock. And with both real-time and asynchronous duels, you can duke it out without being online at the same time.
Don’t miss: When you’re on the receiving end of a challenge, you’ll see your opponent’s choices about a half-second after they make them. If you’re totally stumped, just copy their answer—and try to beat them on the next song!
Meet the creator: SongPop 3 comes from the music-trivia maestros at New York City–based studio FreshPlanet, which was founded in 2009. (That year’s number one song? “Boom Boom Pow” by Black Eyed Peas!)
