Apple recently bought Shazam, and app which can recognize music, TV shows, movies and more based on a snippet of sound. When you can hear music playing out in a bar or club, and want to know what it is, say:
'What song is this?' or 'What's this song?'
Siri will reply 'Let me listen' and will most likely take a few seconds to recognize the song.
Once it does, Siri will respond by saying something like 'I can name that tune.' and will speak both the title and artist as well as a song cover and 'buy' link to the iTunes store.
