Are we not getting enough Heardle from one Heardle a day? You’re going to love this nostalgic new clone we have for you.

In Heardle Decades, we use the Wordle variant’s song guessing to create individual music guessing games based on songs from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, as well as songs from the ’70s. Despite the fact that it’s not an official Heardle offshoot, so it has nothing to do with Heardle’s new owner, Spotify, but it does plug into the streaming site in a similar way.

The original Heardle Decades game selects a random song from a list, but unlike the original (which selected songs that have been streamed the most in the last decade), Heardle Decades selects a random song from “an ever-expanding list of great songs” from the ’60s to the ’90s. Additionally, as well as ’80s No. 1s, you can also play a separate game based on the U.S. and U.K. chart-toppers of the 1980s.

I think it works pretty similarly to Wordle and Heardle, and you get a snippet of the intro and you get to guess the song’s name, with each guess taking a couple seconds more to figure out, like having Wordle or Heardle.

If you want to play Heardle Decades games by a specific artist, there are also specific Heardle Decades games for songs by George Michael, Wham!, Depeche Mode, and Pet Shop Boys.
