What song or theme should micro$oft play for window$ 8


I was inspired by a thread called Suggestions for Codenames for M$ next OS by Alexvader.

Do you remember when window$ XP played Madonna's Ray of Light song?

I will start with two selections

For the love of Money by the O'Jays

Living on the Edge by Aerosmith

If a song or theme you have chosen needs to be explained to get it's meaning, please do so.

For example, Aerosmith's Living on the Edge is because window$ is expose to viruses and spyware.

The Battle theme of "The Gladiator" from Hans Zimmer...

You must really fight aganst that thing to get it to do what you want...

... and finally getting W$ to do it without a BSOD is an epic achievement...

Actually I'd choose a grimmer theme...

Same Muv, same composer...

Unfortunately, this would immediately make Microsoft awesome.

I don't care nor do I follow an artist or group personal lives or their beliefs. I chosen the song based on the title -- hence the joke of a window$ 8 commercial.

BTW, this thread is meant to be in good fun only.
