Songs in Code

Programming related hashtags don’t make the top trend on Twitter. But last Friday night, when most people are out except geeks, the hashtag #songsincode made it to the top trends on Twitter. As of today, here some of my favorite songs in code.

For some unexplainable reason, I found a lot of developers tweeted/coded the song Dude (Looks Like a Lady) by Aerosmith.

Dude (Looks Like a Lady)

  • @davglass: var Dude = new Lady();#songsincode
  • @jrconlin: @davglass Shouldn’t that be: (Lady) new Dude; ? #songsincode
  • @Slow3000: dude.setLook(Looks.LADY); #songsincode
  • @krigsi: LooksLike(“Dude”,”Lady”) #songsincode
  • @ptone: import dude as lady #songsincode
  • @clindh: looks == (lady)dude; #songsincode

I found these three variants of Jay-Z’s song 99 Problems interesting.

99 Problems

  • @brotzeitbrettl: echo count($this->problems) == 99; foreach($this->problems as $p) { echo ($p instanceof Bitch) == false); } #songsincode
  • @peterc: Okay, just one more: # problems.size == 99 && !problems.include?(“bitch”) #songsincode
  • @tome: en(problems) == 99 and “bitch” not in problems

Some songs, in code, by Michael Jackson.

RIP MJ

  • @techknow: dianna.setDirty(true) #songsincode
  • @pud: If (BillieJean.is != my.lover) { BillieJean.justa = ‘girl’; i = 1; } #songsincode
  • @RobertFischer: !my.isLover(billyJean) && billyJean.claims(my.theOne) && !my.isSon(theKid) #songsincode
  • @krigsi: if($Annie = ‘OK’) { SmoothCriminal(Hit) } #songsincode
