If you just played Wordle, Heardle should feel familiar. However, it's not the same either. Heardle tasks players to listen to the first few seconds of a song until they can get it right or come back again tomorrow. You only get six tries to get the right song and its artist for the day's puzzle, which can get tricky. The good news is that the Heardle gods aren't sadistic - they pull out tracks from the day's most popular tunes, so it's not like you're listening to obscure music that only aficionados can guess.
So, without further ado, we are the clues for Heardle 102:
- Was the artist's first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 single and stayed there for five weeks
- The performer directed the music video
- Many executives thought that the song's music video was too explicit for TV
- Ranked as the 31st most celebrated song in popular music history by Acclaimed Music
- Won the Favorite Black Single at the American Music Awards in 1985
Heardle songs are a mixed bag and you'll never know what's next. Case in point, Heardle #101 was an older song that came out in 1990. Today's song? It's even older. Who knows? This is why we perfectly understand why you made it all the way to the end of this article. We'd do everything to maintain our winning streaks for so long, right?
