Default How can you find an instrumental song online?

Ok, I guess y'all have been in a situation like this one before: Let's say you heard one of those wonderful songs from the past, but the song has no lyrics, it's all instrumental, and you have no idea who in the world made it. So here is the question - HOW CAN YOU FIND IT IN THE INTERNET???

You can't hum it (can you?) Is there ANY site, software or device that finds ONLY instrumental music? (I'm not talking about MIDOMI either cause it sucks for most of the classics, jazz, or any instrumental songs).

Somebody ought to create a site that allows you to hum a tune into your computer's mic and find a song. No idea how they'd go about it.

Unfortunately, I haven't got any suggestions for you.

The method does indeed exist at

You can hum or use a virtual keyboard or a Parsons code*
*a method they used to use to find tunes based on changes in pitch before the weird and whacky world of the internet was invented.

Not hugely reliable, but I've found a few classical peices.
