December 9, 2019 New song today: You’ll Be In My Heart, as in the feature Tarzan. This song was made famous and written by Phil Collins. This song has many parts including a reprise of the chorus in a different key without the usual obvious upward key shift (for you music theory geeks out there).
December 5, 2019 Would you believe that this comes from the 40th solo album, All Time Gospel Favorites, by Loretta Lynn? That’s almost hard to imagine!
Though for privacy reasons, Play Along Keys deliberately knows very little about individual users, we do know what songs you play (so we can give you your rank) and what countries you are from and also what kind of device you are using. This chart shows a comparison by iOS/Android and by country. Apparently those of you in India who play Play Along Keys, do so overwhelmingly on Android as well. Our players in Brazil also prefer Android. Things are pretty equal in Germany, but in the rest of the world iOS is generally favored. We hadn’t realized we had so many fans in India! Welcome, India and all! Glad that you are enjoying our music game!
September 23, 2019 A new, exciting bouncy song today, Happy, made famous by Pharrell Williams!

Here’s an idea we’ve never seen in a music game before. A lot of people like four-part harmony, from hymns to barbershop quartets. So in our latest song, Finlandia (Jean Sibelius), you can choose which of the four parts to “play along” with! For those new to this, it could be your first chance to feel what it is like to participate in music performance doing some part other than the melody.
In four-part harmony, particularly with male and female singers, the parts are often called Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass (SATB). We follow this convention in offering the four “play along” parts. Please try them and have fun!
