Cortana Music Search

On 8.1, you had a music icon at the top right for Cortana which basically acted as a built in Shazam to identify music. Currently the only way I know you can access that is to hit the microphone icon with Cortana so she's "listening" for you. At that point, the music icon appears in the top right.

The problem is, when I'm in my car and I hear a song on the radio, hitting that microphone turns off the music because I'm connected to my car via bluetooth. Is there a way around this?

Guess I'll just stick with Shazam because that's such a terrible design. Interrupt the radio for 30 seconds while I try to get Cortana to listen to a song instead of just hitting a button and have her do her thing. Basically made a seamless process into a clunky mess. Posted that on the feedback. Who thought that was a good way to go about this?

But that's the problem. My phone is connected via bluetooth to the car. If I call up cortana to get to that button, she takes over the speakers and turns off the radio that's playing the song I want to find.
