Hozier's hit Take Me to Church features in the top 10 songs most often searched with Shazam.

  • Go To

The super-handy app allows you to 'listen' to a song in a club, on TV, the car or anywhere with your phone and find out exactly what it is.

No more waiting for the DJ to tell you who the artist is only to have him blather on infuriatingly about something else instead.

Shazam has compiled its own Hall of Fame listing which songs are the most searched for on the app.

Among the top 100 there's a lot of Avicci, Sam Smith, Adele and Jason Derulo. Make of that what you will.
