I thought I was a fanboy. I’ve got nothing on Jonathan Mann.
Regular readers may recall that Mann is the guy behind the Bing jingle (which we didn’t like – but students did, or were forced to), the song about me (which we did like), and most recently, the iPhone 4 antenna song (which not only did we love, but apparently Apple did too). Mann, touched by the fact that Apple decided to play his song at their press conference last Friday, decided to follow it up with a serenade for CEO Steve Jobs.
Warning: if some of my posts about Apple drive you crazy, this song is going to make your head explode.
We have lyrics like:
- “If that sounds like Moses, it’s no accident. The cult of Macintosh is a religion.”
- “We bow down to products that make us weep. The beauty of simplicity. The shepherd and his sheep.”
- “In his guarded temple, there’s a beating drum. And it’s made of glass and of aluminum.”
But the craziest thing about this song is that it’s good. Seriously. It’s so damn catchy. Mann continues to impress.
