The easiest way to start the week is by finding out the Heardle answer for today, the 3rd October.
Heardle is a music game inspired by Wordle, where you instead of guessing a word, you hear the opening of a song, with each failed guess prolonging the preview so you can help solve the title and artist in question.
If you fail to guess once you''ve heard the full preview, then you''ll break your streak - which is why discovering today''s Heardle answer is so important for players, especially as some song intros are more elusive than others.
After you solved the Heardle for today, you may also want to learn more about music in games. Remute, a techno producer who creates retro consoles, has been interviewed and discussed what Debussy can do about mood in games.
Clues for today''''s Heardle answer
Instead of going straight to the answer, you may only need a few tweaks to get you over the line:
- Today we have a sneaky Heardle, because it''''s actually two songs placed together in one long track. This means you need to recongise the first word and give a good guess - or see into the future - about the second.
- Both tracks appear on the 2004 studio album of an American punk rock band.
- The first song''''s title references a period during the year where you can take a break to do whatever you wish.
- The second track won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year in 2006.

Heardle is perhaps the most well-known concept of Wordle, the word game, in which millions of people visited every day within months of its arrival in late 2021.
The most significant change in Heardle''s history is the purchase of Spotify for an unidentified amount in July 2022.
Although Heardle remains free and the game itself has changed, the acquisition has seen a few changes, including a shift from SoundCloud as its player of choice to Spotify, which now allows players to listen to the whole track once the game has concluded.
Because, in part, Spotify was interested in Heardle. "We are always looking for innovative and playful techniques to assist musicians in making music discovery and connect with new fans," says Spotify''s global head.
However, it hasn''t been a smooth transition, especially with the game now available in select countries after the acquisiton (UK, US, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand) and that players have reported streaks disappearing.
Wordle, for those who don''t know, went through something similar - with streaks resembling the one seen following the New York Times'' purchase.
Spotify has slammed the game "and other interactive experiences" for allowing music lovers to connect more directly with artists and challenge their friends, as well as having fun in the process.
