OMG, I am SO doing this on Friday!!

ok, so I was watching an old Apple share holder's meeting, a they took a recess. they then started playing this old 80's music. turns out, they had a theme song. it's called "we are apple" link

this gave me an idea: go into the apple store on Friday (Apple's birthday), and play this on as many machines as I can get before they kick me out. either that, or put it on my iPod, and plug it into the HiFi in the store, and blast it over that.

any thoughts? what are you doing for Apple's 30th

share your ideas here.

Ummm ...

Wow, that is the most bizarre thing I've ever seen in my life. Then again, at IBM, we had a songbook. Here's a flash animation of IBM's ever onward song. http://anthems.zdnet.co.uk/anthems/ibm.swf Most IBMer's don't know about the IBM songs in these enlightened times (thank god). Odd how I once was an IBMer, and am know a contractor for Apple. Weird how life goes. Oh well.

Wow.. what a dangerously dancable song. I've always had a soft spot for unbearably cheesy 80s synth pop.

It ain't easy ... bein' cheesy ...

It's a rewrite of Irene Cara's "What a Feeling" from the Flashdance soundtrack. The original was cheesy enough. This version would make Chester Cheetah cringe.

Dear God, that is horrible. I've always hated the 80s, this just reminded me why.

You'd scare people from ever

You'd scare people from ever buying a Mac! I can't imagine the Apple Store would be too happy about that!

Cheers,

Update!

I found a better quality song and movie on a Japanese site. The song is much better quality, but I'm not 100% certain of the movie as it's still downloading.

Cheers,

The Czar

Cool you are a former IBMer,

Cool you are a former IBMer, I'm a current IBMer.

What did you do when you were there?

As for the Apple video, there is no doubt it is from the 80s.

IBMer

Back in summer 2000, I was a summer supplemental tech. It was a great experience. I worked in IBM Global Services, doing server testing on Win NT Server and AIX boxes. It was good work. I come from a long line of IBMers, my great aunt was an IBMer, my aunt's an IBMer, my dad's an IBMer, and my sister and her husband are also former IBMers. Now I'm a contractor for Apple. It all comes full circle sooner or later.
