Ben Croons The Hits Just For You

I’ve never done this before. I’ve recorded a filk I wrote. The quality isn’t great (neither the mixing nor the singing), but I had fun doing this and I might do it again.

Something’s Coming (demo)

I am both proud and cringing. But I’ve heard worse on reputable podcasts, so what the heck…


Could be!
Who knows?
A patch is due any day;
I will know right away,
Soon as it shows.
It may be overnighted on a C-D,
I’ll F-T-P
The I-S-Os!

Who knows?
The final release is due,
Quarter one, quarter two,
AND quarter three!
I got a feeling there’s some hackin’ to do,
Gotta review

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Dynix says it’s something good,
If I can wait!
My sales rep said “I don’t know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!”

Server room, static shock,
Maybe I should leave it locked,
Heck with the patch!
Something’s coming, don’t know when, but it’s soon;
Prob’ly June,
Written from scratch!

I’ll call and tell them,
This waiting makes me shiver,
Come on, deliver
To me!
This is just such a thrill,
Better than a dentist’s drill,
If you’re insane…

I called Dynix right away, filed a log,
Fix the bug,
Take it from there!
The air is humming,
And version nine is coming!
Who knows?
The final release is due,
Quarter one, quarter two,
or quarter three…

    Hee hee. =D Fantastic.
    I need to do one for CCLA.
    And I’m almost willing to bet there are at least two others on the Service Desk who’d be willing to help. Heh.

    I think it’s great, Ben!

    not too shabby. singing definitely better than the mixing as i’m having trouble picking out words. then again, this is a common problem of mine.

    As in “It’s fun to work at the C-C-L-A”? You could even do a video, get some co-workers to dress up as the Village People…

    Thanks. I’ve put the lyrics into the post above so you can give it another try. (*why* am I trying to make my singing the worse part?!)
