I'm always impressed when I discover new ways that people are using the internet to make our lives more productive or fun, and this ranks among the best of them. Midomi is a web site which helps you remember the name of a song or tune that you've forgotten, so long as you still remember a small part of the music.
Assuming you have a microphone linked to your PC (or a webcam that includes a mic), head to http://www.midomi.com/ in your browser. Click the button and then sing or hum a few seconds of the tune. Press the button again, and within just a few seconds you'll be presented with a handful of suggestions, one of which is likely to be the name of the piece you were trying to recall.
Midomi is fun to use, and free.
