When you choose an opponent you’ll go through five songs with the computer or with an opponent. The faster you pick the more points you get, but if you guess wrong you don’t get any points. If you have no idea it is often better to wait for more of the song to play so that you can hear a clue in the lyrics.

There are a variety of playlists by genre and decade so that you can pick those that you are most familiar with. Many of the songs start at a chorus or a well-known part so that you have a better chance of guessing.

Winning at SongPop 2 isn’t just about being a musical genius. You can use some of the SongPop 2 tips and tricks below to score higher and beat your opponents. Although these come from the original game, they still apply to the new version of the game. Ronald NG of SiteCore shares these, and many other important SongPop tips on Quora.

  • Relax: the brain’s ability to recall music is automatic and instinctive  you either know it or you don’t. If you do, your brain doesn’t ‘think’ about it. I’ve found the more I relax, the faster my response times. Just don’t relax too much that your mind starts to wander. Oh, and hit the right answer,this is really important.
  • Scan don’t read: if you don’t know the basics of speed reading, this is something worth looking up. People who have had practice at eliminating @Subvocalization have a head start on playlists like ‘Duets’ where you have four answers like ‘Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes‘.
  • Instincts: trust them. If you get to about 2 seconds and you’re undecided between a couple, and you don’t want to use a powerup, hit the first one you thought was right.
  • Use headphones: the song gets to your ears faster and it blocks out distractions. Just don’t forget to feed your kids/dog/husbands.

Like with any fast paced game, we suggest taking a break between sessions to reset. It’s important to strike the right balance between waiting for a lyric that gives the song away and guessing with your gut.
