you have two(2) options:
a) just remember onelook.com
b) try the site search at the bottom of this page (turns out that segue has been an AWAD entry)

I was wondering if you'd missed your vocation as a primary school teacher!

If I could remember onelook.com, I'd look in onelook.com.

Jo,
I'm sticking my neck out for you by posting something I
haven't looked up. I do not doubt that someone will
correct me if I'm wrong (no problem as long as they don't
use an axe). Segue means the point of continuation from
one segment to the next, such as on a television show,
one scene segues into the next.

Thanks Jackie.

I'll try to slip it into conversation.

And often used in music (especially by ‘disc jockeys’) with the same meaning -- and very frustrating if you’re trying to record a specific item!
