Spotify’s songs about Microsoft (yes, Microsoft!) are awesome and must be … – PCWorld

How many more times must we hear another lousy song about love? The genre is wildly over-represented, so let me suggest an alternative for your Spotify playlist: songs about Microsoft.

Love it or leave it, your PC is what you actually gaze at—often soulfully—for hours every day. So it stands to reason that men and women actually write songs about Microsoft. They do. There are tons! And some of them are actually good.

From the blues to country to hop-hop to punk, we’ve collected the best songs about Microsoft. You’ll need a subscription for Spotify to listen to the embedded tracks below, but even a free subscription will do. I emphatically suggest you opt in, because you’ll be surprised by how good some of these are. Just use headphones when listening to these around the kids—many include explicit lyrics.

A Microsoft Farewell—Andy Browning

 

Let’s kick off Microsoft’s greatest hits with a little slice of Americana. Andy Browning sings from the heart (and the heartland) about how it just isn’t working out any more. Unfortunately, you can’t always reboot love—sometimes you’ve just got to power it off.

The Skype Song—Cynthia Wang

A sweet ballad about longing, distant love, and the power of VOIP leads us into this song about Microsoft’s messaging/voice/video solution. It’s unclear whether Taiwanese actress and singer Cynthia Wang, who has a number of albums to her credit, is the talent behind this homage to Skype. But we don’t care. We’ll still accept her call.

Microsoft Bob (feat. Spencer Kennedy) (Explicit)—The A La Mode
