Apple Music is here. Some people love it. Some people think it’s doomed. Wherever you stand on matters, one thing is clear: Apple did a good job hitting most of the notes it needed to hit, and it also added a couple of unique features users can’t find elsewhere. One of them, of course, is Beats 1.

Beats 1 is Apple’s global radio station that streams around the clock. But what happens if you hear something you like and don’t catch it in time to see the name?

Dave Mark of The Loop points us to a great little Twitter account created by programmer Callum Jones. Dubbed @Beats1Play, the account serves one purpose: It tweets each and every song played on Beats 1, in order, in real time.

Beyond the name of the track and the artist, each tweet also includes a link to the song’s iTunes page so you can preview it or buy it. Or, if you’re an Apple Music subscriber, you can just save it or add it to a playlist.

Beats 1 plays music across all sorts of genres, so this Twitter account is also a great discovery tool. Look over the past few hours of songs and you’re likely to find all sorts of music you’ve never heard before.
