If you’re anything like us, you’ve been tormenting yourself for months with the spirit of the New York Times.

Described as “a respectful tribute to Wordle”, Heardle comes with a musical twist.

Here’s how to play the game as well as clues to the July 12 song and that all-important answer when you eventually give up.

How to play Heardle

Daily online gaming involves people trying to guess which song is playing by just hearing the intro.

Like Wordle, the goal is to get the melody right with as few guesses as possible.

“Each Heardle is randomly selected from a list of the most streamed songs over the past decade,” the music game app explains on its website.

Heardle also added that “Much love (and all relevant copyrights) to all featured artists.”

The musical game also records the number of games you play, your winnings and win rate as well as your current and highest streak.

If you’re just starting the music trend or slowing down your streak, here are the songs you’ve been missing lately.
