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

That was super, Anton!

That really is nicely done and clever. Thanks for sharing.

Love love love this! Jelena, I don't think I'll even try, that was just too good. ;)

This is ingenious! :)

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?

Colleen, only if you attend TechEd. :)

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

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?

Very cool, Martin!

By the way - it seems to be possible to recover bookmarks according to a comment from Oliver: https://blogs.sap.com/2015/03/20/the-long-run/#comment-351820

Finally I can see some benefit for people to follow content :)

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?

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 gamification to play.
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday...

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

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

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?
