I’m addicted to Wordle and I love music so I had to try Heardle!
There are a lot of Wordle spinoffs, but this is the first one I’ve tried because you have to use your music knowledge to solve it so I played today (Thursday, March 24th) for the first time. NO SPOILERS, but I got it on the third listen.
Heardle calls itself “a respectful homage to Wordle, with a musical twist.” Here’s how you play according to the Heardle website: “Listen to the intro, then find the correct artist & title in the list. Skipped or incorrect attempts unlock more of the intro. Answer in as few tries as possible and share your score!”
I did two skips today to reveal enough of the intro to get the right song. When I guessed correctly it said, “You’re a star! You got today’s Heardle within 4 seconds.” I definitely need to add playing Heardle to my morning routine right after I solve the daily Wordle.
You can try Heardle yourself here.
They retweeted Questlove playing Heardle #8 and getting it right on the first listen… I would expect nothing less from this DJ/Music extraordinaire!
