This post is like an ad break from those "heavy" thoughts - simply to draw attention to an app which is likely to be very funny very quickly (then become very old very quickly!). It's called Songify, released July 7 2011 on iTunes.
As a precursor to understanding Songify, it is recommended that you become acquainted with the work of The Gregory Brothers. These guys first came to my attention when I saw the clip below.
With the release of Songify, anyone with an iPhone, iPad or iPod can take a recording of their own voice and it will automatically turn it into a "song". The results do get a laugh as you hear the most mundane comments turned into the kind of thing you hear on the charts. The app is free and incredibly fast and easy to use.
Does it make anyone a musician? No! Is it funny? Yeah. Will it have longevity? Absolutely not.
Enjoy for a few minutes until you're sick of it!
