The New SCN Theme Song Contest!

Just thought it's time to put some "fun" in the Coffunee Corner. (Yes, I actually put it there. :) ) Do you have an idea for a New SCN theme song? Post it here! Here is my submission:

Scroll, scroll, scroll your mouse.
Gently down the screen.
Surely, surely, surely, surely this is just a bad dream.

I'm certain Matt Fraser can beat that! If only I could @-mention him, sigh...

    Hi Jelena, I have no original content, but I think the first four lines of the Queen- Bohemian Rhapsody would be a good choice :)

      Is this the best tag?
      Is this my question too?
      Pre-moderation,
      No escape from the queue.

    The sound of silence = NEW SAP COMMUNITY

    Original : Simon & Garfunkel (C)

    Simon And Garfunkel - The Sound Of Silence

    Hello WHITENESS NEW LEAN friend
    I STRUGGLE CONTRIBUTE again
    Because NEW PLATFORM softly creeping
    BETA TEST while I was sleeping
    And OLD FORUM that was planted in my brain
    Still remains within NEW sound of silence

    In restless dreams I walked alone
    OLD S.C.N. of cobblestone
    'Neath GOOD LOST FEATURES lamp
    I turned my collar to NEW cold and damp

    When my eyes were stabbed
    By the flash of «RUN SIMPLE» light
    That split the night
    And LIVE WENT sound of silence

    IN NEW COMMUNITY I saw
    MARKETING people, MORE AND MORE
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening

    People writing BLOGS
    That READERS never share
    And no one dare
    Disturb the sound of silence

    "Fools, " said I, "you do not know
    GARBAGE WITH NO STRUCTURE grows.
    Hear THE MODS WHO TRY TO teach you
    CAUSE THE TAGS WILL NEVER reach you."
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence

    So S.A.P. JUST bowed and prayed
    To the HANA God they made
    And EXCHANGE ISSUED warning
    And the BANKRUPTCY was forming

    And the sign said,
    "The NEEDS of THE USERS
    Are written on the IDEAS walls
    And COMMENTS halls."
    And whispered in the sound of silence

    I'm quite crap at this type of thing but I'll see if I can find time to procrastinate later.... My thoughts is this should become a annual thing and top voted song is performed at TechEd by the Band. Thoughts?

    Can the old SCN song be 'That ain't no way to go" Brooks & Dunn?

  • Nov 03, 2016 at 07:08 PM

    Well, I was going to start off by saying something snarky about how my Gilligan's Island comments may have inspired your post Jelena, but after multiple failed 1DX searches, and custom Google searches I was unable to find the post where I quoted the lyrics from the old TV show...

    Not willing to give up that easily, I paged through I don't know how many +MORE activities in both the Coffee Corner and the Using SAP.com, still unable to find what I was looking for.

    Thankfully a few pages into my personal Activities feed I was able to find a recognizable title and only because Audrey had recently commented on it related to Karma points, so needless to say I found the needle in the SCN haystack. Too bad, a simple search for "Gilligan" didn't produce what I was looking for...or a profile view that simply listed my own contributions...

    In spite of my unproductive search results, I did come to learn that I wasn't the first person to use some of the Gilligan's Island theme song to lament about SAP - enjoy this 2009 post.

    ************************************************************************************************

    Now, my submission to your coffee corner post :)

    I simply have to reference this "New Territories" post by Craig. My creativity is not anywhere close to Anton's submission, but the irony in the closing verse for the old TV show that I grew up watching re-runs is valid for honorable mention if nothing else for your contest! Enjoy the video and lyrics to the theme song below :)

    (Ending verse)

    So this is the tale of our castaways,
    They're here for a long, long time.
    They'll have to make the best of things,
    It's an uphill climb.

    The first mate and his Skipper, too,
    Will do their very best,
    To make the others comfortable
    In the tropic island nest.

    No phone, no lights, no motor car,
    Not a single luxury
    Like Robinson Crusoe
    It's primitive as can be.

    So join us here each week my friends,
    You're sure to get a smile,
    From seven stranded castaways
    Here on Gilligan's Isle!

      I've been hearing so much about this Gilligan's Island I have to watch it now. Thanks, Jeremy!

    Where have all the bookmarks gone
    Long time passing?
    Where have all the bookmarks gone
    Long time ago?
    Where have all the bookmarks gone
    Archives gulped them everyone.
    When will they ever learn?
    When will they ever learn?

    Love the idea, but my current IDM project sucks all creativity out of me. Nontheless, I just listened to a song by Alex & Sierra called "Bumper cars" and some verses were oddly fitting for the new and improved SCN:

    Can't help wondering what you're thinking
    Wherever you are

    Late night movies, careless drinking
    To cover these scars

    And as much as I wanna be with you, I know...

    You and me, we're bumper cars
    The more I try to get to you
    The more we crash apart, no
    Round and round we chase the sparks
    But all that seems to lead to....
    Is a pile of broken parts

    We're bumper cars
    Bumper cars
    The more I try to get to you
    The more we crash apart

    Good intentions, all these questions
    I'm sitting alone
    All roads - since you - are wrong directions
    I'll never get home


    And it's making me wanna be with you, I know...

    You and me, we're bumper cars
    The more I try to get to you
    The more we crash apart, no
    Round and round we chase the sparks
    But all that seems to lead to
    Is a pile of broken parts

    We're bumper cars
    Bumper cars
    The more I try to get to you
    The more we crash apart, oh

    This was supposed to be fun
    This was supposed to be the one
    Maybe we stayed too long
    Maybe we played all wrong
    This was supposed to be good
    But I know, I know

    You and me we're bumper cars
    The more I try to get to you
    The more we crash apart, no
    Round and round we chase the sparks
    But all that seems to lead to...
    Is a pile of broken parts

    We're bumper cars
    Bumper cars
    The more I try to get to you
    The more we crash apart

      Thanks, Steffi! Time to proceed to "Late night movies, careless drinking". :)

    Can't we keep the good old "99 little bugs in the code" from SCN Beta?

    • Nov 08, 2016 at 08:06 PM

      It may need to be renamed to "99 Old Ideas to Implement" eventually. :)

    The Beatles - Yesterday (YouTube with Lyrics)

    2 months ago all my troubles seemed so far away.
    Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
    Oh, I believe in yesterday. Suddenly I'm not half the [community] man I used to be.
    There's a shadow hanging over me.
    Oh, October 10th came suddenly. Why JIVE had to go, I don't know, they wouldn't say.
    I said something wrong (#bug, #feedback), now I long for yesterday. Yesterday community was such an easy gam ification to play.
    Now I need a place to hide away.
    Oh, I believe in yesterday...
    • Dec 09, 2016 at 10:02 PM

      Thanks, Jeremy, that was cool! They did say why though. :) Still, doesn't make me feel any better, sigh...

      • Dec 09, 2016 at 10:07 PM

        And by "sigh...", do you mean that you also 'long for yesterday' ;)

  • Dec 08, 2016 at 11:50 PM

    Tags Tags baby
    Tags Tags baby
    All right stop
    Collaborate and listen
    Tag is back with my brand new invention
    Something grabs a hold of me tightly
    Then I flow that a harpoon daily and nightly
    Will it ever stop?
