Parody songs are nice. What was that group that did them some years ago? Max Raabe?

Sadly perhaps not so funny for those who don't know the Hokey Cokey (Hokey Pokey, I believe, in the US) but still good fun.

Sorry for the double-post but Robyn and Ryksopp are well worth listening to with this track, for example, going through my head since I first heard it:

From scanning the past few pages, this is pretty different from what other people are posting, but I'll throw it out anyway.

Yamaha has developed a program (called VOCALOID) that's essentially a virtual singer. They sampled a (real-life) singer's voice at a set pitch and recorded all the phonetic sounds, then based a "voicebank" off of it. It's based in Japan, so most of the songs on Youtube are Japanese, but there are a few good English ones too. The most popular "singer" (at least that I've found) is Hatsune Miku.

Some of the songs are actually written from the perspective of the computer (personifing it, like it's an AI), like Glass Wall (English) and The Disappearance (Japanese. Note: some flashing parts). Also, in that last video, the writer took advantage of one crucial fact: Computers don't need to breathe, and can sing very fast.

They've even done live concerts, using projectors and a transparent screen. She was even on the David Letterman show once.

I saw it and didn't understand it. Something about personifying software that bugs me for some reason.
