Songsincode: Popular Songs Written in Computer Code


Many people, well, geeks, are participating in a Twitter meme where lyrics to well-known songs are rendered in computer code.

If you don’t get it: songsincode tries to display either a title of a song or part of its lyrics (as some songs are more known by the refrain than their title – for example there is no such thing as “all the lonely people” by The Beatles) in code. This could be PHP, JavaScript or any other language. For this, sad geeks clever people use code constructs like if statements and loops to describe conditions and repetition. If you don’t get it, don’t feel left behind, it is hard core geek.

Chris Heilmann has more examples.
