Shazam is that cool smart phone app that “listens” to a song you don’t know and identifies it for you. I’m always using it, especially when it comes to songs used in TV shows and commercials. It’s a magical thing.
It’s also pretty magical for artists, managers, record labels and music publishers. The data collected from Shazamers can be used for a million things, from gauging public reaction to measuring the success of a marketing campaign and beyong.
