Once again, a big thank you to everyone for joining in and sharing your song titles.

There were some brilliant choices, and each one seems to work perfectly.

    I have a CFDude tee, but if I win you can send me an #80sFriday tee for the Nadel Offensive. :D


    The song would be “NM 156″ by Queensryche:

    Uniform printout reads end of line
    Protect code intact leaves little time
    Erratic surveys, free thinking not allowed
    My hands shake, my push buttons silence
    The outside crowd

    One world government has outlawed war among nations
    Now social control requires population termination

    Have we come too far
    To turn around
    Does emotion hold the key
    Is logic just a synonym for
    This savagery, disguised in
    Forgotten lost memory

    Microchip logic
    Have we no more thought
    Is this wrong I enter
    Answers sought
    Punch, punch, punch, transfer this data
    Into code. wide eyes watch my
    Number 156 is shown
    Created from past life to perform
    Illicit function, I fail this conscious
    Madness I man/machine imperfection

    Have we come too far
    To turn around
    Does emotion hold the key
    Is logic just a synonym for
    This savagery, disguised in
    Forgotten lost memory
    End of line

    Actually, nevermind. That sounds more like PHP!!!!

    Bachman-Turner Overdrive, “You ain’t seen nothing yet”

  • http://www.cagedata.com David Long

    I don’t know that there is any song that could fully entail ColdFusion, but I know what it needs to have.
    It needs to have a soft and sensual opening into the first verse. The first verse would speak to how much you can do if you just believe… The bridge into the chorus would speed up a bit into talking about how much you can control everything else around you just by typing a few words. The song would then explode into the chorus going on about how much everything is tied together with… ColdFusion. Somewhere in the song it would say that is should be called HotFusion cus it is so damn hot.

    That to me is what the song about ColdFusion should be.
