How to Search for Songs by Lyrics on Amazon Echo

Nancy Messieh 17-10-2017

Have you ever heard a song, didn’t know who sang it, and didn’t know the title, but caught just one snippet of the lyrics? You can usually throw those lyrics into Google and identify the song that’s now stuck in your head, but it’s even easier if you have an Amazon Echo.


One of the Echo’s native features (recently pointed out by Lifehacker) is the ability to search for songs by lyrics. Rather than pulling up a browser on your phone or computer, you can just ask Alexa using the voice command “Alexa, what’s the song that goes [lyrics]?”

If Alexa recognizes the song, she’ll let you know the title and artist and will start playing the song immediately.

Amazon also recently released a list of the top 50 most requested songs by lyrics through Alexa. The number one song HandClap by Fitz and the Tantrums. Other artists that appear on the list include Justin Timberlake, Journey, Ed Sheeran, and Queen.

The Amazon list also gives some insight into the most searched for songs by city, with Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, New York, and Seattle included in the list.

    When I try this feature, she says Resuming Spotify and starts playing the last song I listened to.
