Geek Holiday Songs

Geek HolidayThe holidays give us a chance to hear some of our favorite old familiar songs, and this year, in the spirit of all things tech, Jennifer L. Jacobson has taken a stab at a few classics, in the hopes that throngs of joyous carolers will herd around, outside big-box stores, and in the glens and doorways of towns everywhere, to sing the tech-version of holiday standbys. Enjoy.


Song 1: 3D TV

To the tune of O Tannenbaum or
O Christmas Tree

3D TV, 3D TV,
How lovely are your glasses.
They show us A-vatar so blue
Where giant Smurfs – make dreams come true
3D TV, 3D TV,
How lovely are your glasses.

3D TV, 3D TV,
When will we have – more content.
Monsters and A-lice, we adore,
But still it leaves us wanting more.
3D TV, 3D TV,
When will we have – more content.


Song 2: Apple We Have Heard On High

Angels We Have Heard On High To the tune of Angels We Have Heard On High

Apple we have heard on high
Jobs presiding o’re the press
And the bloggers in reply
Echoing in joint distress

Chorous
An-te-nna gate, why can’t I, place a call, today?
Am I holding it wrong?
A – T & T, why can’t we, use our phone, today?
Can I have a bu-um-per?

See Jobs’ sto-ry yet, unfold
Writers in a stran-glehold
Love our products, no cha-grin,
Or you’re not welcome back, again.

Chorous
An-te-nna gate, why can’t I, place a call, today?
Am I holding it wrong?
A – T & T, why can’t we, use our phone, today?
Can I have a bu-um-per?


Song 3: Carol of the iPhone

Carol of the Bells To the tune of Carol of the Bells

Hark, how the phone, sweet Tweet iPhone
Still seems to say, “send texts my way.”
Facebook on call, posts on my wall,
All seem to say, won’t go away.

Aps on the go, show me the snow,
Even the sea, I want to be,
Somewhere away, I want to stay,
Without my phone, leave it at home.

On, how they type, find me on Skype,
No rest for me, can’t let me be,
Why can’t this thing, turn off its ring
Can’t part from it, tell it I quit.

Maybe, Maybe, Maybe loose my iPhone
Maybe, Maybe Maybe finally a-lone.

On they descend, On without end,
Apps in my head, till bat is dead.

iPhone – i – Phoooooone


Song 4: Silver Case

Silver Bells To the tune of Silver Bells

Little BlackBerry,
Shiny BlackBerry,
Who would know, dressing you,
Would be as hard, as winning, the Lotto?

Just a sweater, something better
Than a belt clip or two
Is all I want, to give you,
This year.

Silver case, silver case,
Red, green or blue, would be perfect.
Silver case, silver case,
I want to find something more.

Checked Retrevo
Now I’m happy.
For these cases I’ve found,
All can make my BlackBerry, look awesome.

Sort by price, or sort by color,
It’s true you can’t go wrong,
Cause’ Retrevo will help you,
Decide.

Silver case, silver case,
Red, green or blue, would be perfect.
Silver case, silver case,
Now my BlackBerry, looks great.

Song 5: Little Droid Fanboy

Little Drummer Boy

To the tune of Little Drummer Boy

I’ll give my Droid to you, pa-rum-pum-pum pum.
I hope it works for you, pa-rum-pum-pum pum.
I can’t stand it you see, pa-rum-pum-pum pum.
I want a BlackBerry, pa-rum-pum-pum pum.
Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.

So please take my droid, pa-rum-pum-pum pum.
And be done.

I thought it would be great, pa-rum-pum-pum pum.
But now it’s second rate, pa-rum-pum-pum pum.
How I had wanted just to ta-ake it home,
But now I’m don’t think it out-weighs the iPhone,
Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.

So please take my droid, pa-rum-pum-pum pum.
