The Drupal Song

Comments

very funny

Cheesy, funny, cool!

This was bound to happen only I didnt think it would be this way, sounds like a cheap ad on a local radiostation or a stationcall and I mean that in a good way!

Very good job! I will be using this is an upcoming presentation I have to do. Lets see if at the end the crowd goes wild "drupal drupal dru-pal!"

Great initiative!

I love this and can't stop laughing! Another reason to choose Drupal! It's got it's own song!

2 Questions

1.) Why?
2.) How much time did you waste on this?

Fantastic!

I normally hate songs that wedge themselves into my head like a virus, but that's fantastic!

Is this the kinda music Orbit used to make? ;-)

Agree with BryanSD

I'm not a musician but, you know, the chorus is definitely catchy. I'm not Jewish but it reminds me of some Jewish music I've heard that was also catchy.

And, nice voice Jeff!

For kids

The song is also for kids, so that they in their 4 years already knew about Drupal and would use it then when they will build their first website ;-)

Like, you know, ...

This song is very minimalistic. Catchy, straightforward, kind of funny, and very minimalistic.

I'm looking forward to the day when promotion songs actually grow to something more than just a nicely worked out idea. Like, you know, some complex layering of musical motives, development of sounds and emotions throughout the song, a tiny share of jazz chords, and a shitload of subtleties that only insiders can laugh about.

Yeah, dream on jpetso. Nevertheless, nicely done!

Captcha

Btw, your math question captcha doesn't work in Konqueror.
Whereas I know other sites where the same Drupal captcha actually does work.

The Drupal Song

This is great. Beats all those OpenBSD release songs ;)

I like how you almost crack up repeating "Drupal" over and over..

tootsie roll song

You may just be the one.. (isn't that the way it always is when you produce something, "Make More!")

Whatever it is I think I see

Sure!

Use it however you like. If possible, I'm going to GPL the song. Either way, it's free to use however you like.

Use

I think I'm going to play it on my radio show. (I'd identify the station but I'm embarrassed by its website)

nice showcase

Wow, those are some fantastic examples of the diversity of Drupal theming in that video! The one at the beginning particularly caught my attention: http://www.mc-coperture.it/
Way to promote our favorite cms..

Nice! your ROCK! now for the Drupal commercial

I love it. kind of reminds me of the old "i'd like to buy the world a Coke" song. When you make the commercial, make sure that the first chorus is sung by just the singer in a room at a piano, then the second by everyone in the room (about 7 happy shinny people all of obvious diverse steyotypical races and geners, and of course one in a wheel chair), then the third by the entire neighboorhood as you pan out, the mailman singing, the milkman, the paper boy, etc..., then the fourth by people filled in a football statium, etc... Eventually you have 3 billion Chinese singing the chorus in their funny accents, and you pan back into space while the sound fades out, eventually ending on the famous picture of the earth from space from the Apollo mission. Still for 5 seconds...then cut to the space dude on the moon sticking the flag in the moon, but make it a Drupal flag instead of a USA flag. then out...

Cheers! Ricco

site recepie

install you guessed it... Drupal!
enable locale.module
make a module, drupalsong.module, with this code:

<?php
play_song
(t('song', 'The Drupal Song!'));
?>

go to drupalsongs.org, and download the hungarian translation.
now, whenever you go to your site, you will hear chx singing the drupal song.

Alternatively,
go to drupalsongs.org, and download the belgian translation.
now, whenever you go to your site, you will hear dries singing the drupal song.

Or,
go to drupalsongs.org, and download the views translation.

Having fun with these

Having fun with these remixes :)

Who would have thought Drupal of all things would get me back into playing with music!

Yay, a remix!

Kcaz is the first to get a remix in, and whoooah! Bi-tonal Drupality... the theorists are going to go crazy =)

Imagine a bunch of kids

Imagine a bunch of kids huddled around an Optigan. Intentionally overloaded and voice pitch changed to make it sound more playful.

I admit I cringed pretty badly when I first head it. I still do but this remix makes it sound more innocent. A kid singing this makes it less painful. :p

(kids are at it again -remix)

Slayer

Maybe if Slayer or He Is Legend could be persuaded to do a cover. There's definitely some metal in there.

<div style="persona: simon-cowell">That was really embarrassing! It sounds like something the Teletubbies should have been singing. No, wait... It's too bad even for them. You must turn in your musical instruments immediately and promise never to sing again!</div>

That is rubbish...

but kinda sweet. I've never heard a love song to a CMS before (and hope I never will again!).

And "no", I'm not gonna remix it myself (even though I am a music producer/remixer) - you can't make a silk purse from a pig's ear.

But thanks anyway (and praise Moondog that I didn't hear this before I started to learn Drupal)!

This song and the fools that think it qualifies as funny or reasonable marketing represent all that currently sucks about drupal. but now it needs another remix:)
