It’s the last day of spring and what better way to mark the changing of the seasons than by playing the latest game of Heardle? (Okay, that’s a stretch. Barbecue will be at the top of many people’s lists.)

Anyway, I hope you’re enjoying both the weather and today’s Heardle. If you’re having some trouble with today’s game though, I’ve got some clues and the answer for you.

For those who are new to Heardle, here’s how to play: You will hear the first second of a reasonably well-known song. You’ll then take a guess at the artist and title or skip your turn. If you skip or guess incorrectly, you’ll get to hear a little more of the song. The game continues until the sixth and final guess, at which point you’ll hear 16 seconds of the track.

Here are the songs you may have missed if you haven’t played for a few days:

Did you know you can view the entire Heardle community’s stats for each song? For instance, 42% of players did not get “Bridge Over Trouble Water” while 60% correctly guessed “Let’s Dance” at the first attempt. A whopping 85% did not get Wu-Tang Clan’s “CREAM” on June 9. I’ll try to include these stats moving forward. They’re pretty interesting.
