Put On The Red Light!

Thanks to the NY Times article "Microsoft Songsmith Is Easy (if Painful to Hear)" I couldn't resist finding the painfully bad YouTube infomercial for Songsmith and the even MORE painful Springsteen inspired XP sales pitch they describe in the article. If you are brave enough to sample them, just don't say you haven't been warned!

But the real fun begins when you take the vocal tracks from classic songs and run them through Microsoft Songsmith like this horrific version of "Roxanne" by The Police. Real songwriters have nothing to fear from Bill Gates attempt to mimic the kind of creativity tool that we've come to expect from Apple. Tons of excruciating examples can be found on YouTube by other artists as well!
