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

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 August 8 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.

Spotify recently acquired Heardle, telling fans it has a “new font” but “sounds just as good”.

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

You can even click on the song and add it directly to your Spotify playlist if you like what you hear.

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