It’s May 10, which is the 130th day of the year. (Happy birthday to Bono and one of my family members I won’t identify because you all are snoops.) So here’s another stat: today marks the 74th edition of Heardle, the super fun song guessing game.
It’s only truly fun if you know what the song is. If not, I’ve got some clues and the answer to today’s Heardle lined up just ahead.
Heardle provides you with six guesses to nail down the song title and artist each day for the uninitiated. You’ll only hear one second of the intro at first, with more of the song unlocking after each failed guess.

Today’s might be tricky if you’re unfamiliar with the song. So, with the aid of the curated selection of pieces available through Heardle’s autocomplete answer box, perhaps some clues will help you figure out today’s track:

- It was released in 1976.
- This reached number 12 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number 16 in the U.K.
- This will make it too easy for some, but I can’t resist: More cowbell!
