AOL Buys TechCrunch: The Song

We’re now part of AOL, and Mike has already written at length about what that means for us and you, our readers. And to showcase just how amazing our readers are: one of them actually took the time to produce a song about the deal.

We’re baffled, honored and a little weirded out – kudos to Christoph Grimm from German startup popula, who wrote the song as a sort of thank-you note for writing them up back in April 2008 (which got them funded, eventually).

Here are the lyrics (as they were sent to us):

Oh Wake up, wake up, it’s eight o’ clock on a wednesday morning
I’m checking my mails and Google Reader – yeah I know, It sounds boring

I open up the Techcrunch feed and I still cannot believe

Oh Techcrunch, Techcrunch you help Startups get a little exposure
We’re one of those and you’re the reason investors signed our non disclosure
We even found the one, so we’re glad that you found a nice one, too

I hope TC stays the same
There’s not a thing that I would change
Because you’re amazing just the way you are

Techcrunch’s not your blog
Infact it belongs to all of us
That makes it amazing just the way it is

Hey Mike, do you listen
I want to say thank you for you’ve done.

And congratulations for selling Techcrunch to AOL
Greetings from you beloved clone-capital Germany
