    There is an ap on my cell phone into which I can play any music. If it is commercially released music there is a good chance the ap can accurately identify the name, the artist, and the album. It either can or can't, and with most commercially available CDs it works well. Quickly too. If it doesn't get it in a second or two, it isn't going to.

    Interestingly, you cannot hum a tune into it, or play guitar into it. It has to be "the" recording.

    So when I hear stuff like the sample, and further more my ap doesn't know what it is, I am very comfortable saying its probably something made or glued together for the commercial.
    How did I become a senior member? I only recently figured out where the restrooms are.

    Wow, thanks for mentioning that, JeffD. The beauty of that app is, even though the digital era only goes back to the early 1980s, just about everything of any significance from before that in the classical world has now been reissued digitally, at least from the major labels. Maybe all of that isn't in the app's database quite yet, but in time I suspect that app will consistently answer the name that recording question.

    The app works 100% with anything played on the radio. Classical, pop, jazz, showtunes, anything. Boom there is the name of the piece, the artist, the name of the album.

    It rarely gets a youtube right, in my experience, and never can identify live music.
