New Song: Java EE 5!



People who know me personally know I'm not afraid of doing things some other people would consider... well, weird at least. So it was last Sunday I had this creative mood and thought it's been quite a while since I've done something a bit crazy. I heard the "Mambo Number 5" song on the radio, well, I don't really like that song so much but my mind was wondering at that time somewhere in the Java EE 5 world (trying to figure out what's the best way to talk from NB platform with an application server). And then it clicked... Mambo Number 5... Java EE 5... there must be more I can do with the lyrics :)

So I recorded a new geeky song about Java EE 5 (hosted on Javalobby). It would be a pity not to share it, I'm not a professional singer - but that makes it even more fun, I guess. Rick Ross liked the song and wrote a nice discussion post on Javalobby about it, I'm definitely looking forward to the discussion!

It goes like this...

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Java EE 5!

One, two, three, four, five
There's a technology I use day and night
For my application with a web frontend
They told me to use .Net
But I really don´t wanna

So many bugs I fixed last week.
My code is neat and talk is a cheap
I like Glassfish, JSF, persistence API
And as I continue you know they´re gettin´ sweeter

So what can I do I really beg you my Lord
To me codin' it´s just like a sport
All the bad code from the past, let me dump it
Please set in the trumpet

A little bit of injection in my life
A little bit of persistence by my side
A little bit of NetBeans is all I need
A little bit of EJB's what I see
A little bit of standards in the sun
A little bit of XML all night long
A little bit web services here I am
A little bit of code makes me real man

This is Java EE 5!

Jump up and down and move your code around
Shake your head to the sound bury bad code under ground
Move one step left and one step right
One to the front and one to the side
Refactor it once and refactor it twice
If it looks like this you're doin´ it right

A little bit of injection in my life
A little bit of persistence by my side
A little bit of NetBeans is all I need
A little bit of EJB's is what I see
A little bit of standards in the sun
A little bit of XML all night long
A little bit web services here I am
A little bit of code makes me real man

This is Java EE 5!


Maybe I will grow up once. Maybe I won't...

Cool! Funny that you choose Mambo No 5 since it has been made into a Java song before. Does anybody have a recording of the "Java Number Five" peformed on the fifth Java One in 2000?

Microsoft also made a video based on Mambo No 5 and it was about windows nt 5 if I remember right.

The best parody of all times is still WinSongs 95... google for it, it's still alive. :-)

GREAT! WOW! Excellent!!!!
ANOTHER ONE!!!

(here are some other song-ideas for you, Roumen)

(1) I will survive
(an adaption of the Gloria-Gaynor-song. That's a Netbeans-evangelist's protest-song against the Eclipse-project)

(2) Here goes the Sun
(adapted from Beatles-tune "Here comes the Sun")

Little darling,
it's been a long long lonely winter (on the NASDAQ)... Here goes the Sun, little darling, here goes the sun ...

(3) Piece of my heart
(performed by Janis Strobl)
Take another little bit of my marketshare now.

(4) Beans of destruction
performed by „Rocking Roumen and the new Ditzelers“
But you tell me over and over and over again, my friend.... you're old enough to use those Beans of destruction

(5) Total Eclipse of my heart
That will be a chartbreaker in USA, UK, Germany, France and Corea (and probably in Czek republic)

ROFL these ideas are really cool! :))

Actually I kinda like the following line from Dark Side of the moon.

The Sun is the same in a relative way, but it's sinking.
Racing around, to come up behind you again.

Alan.

Actually I mixed up two sets of lines there.

Well you run and you run t ocatch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around tom come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day nearer to death

Alan.

Interesting blog entry from James :) Maybe we can create a new Guiness record with the number of people wearing the same NetBeans T-shirt...? :)
