Geeks Just Wanna Have Fun = #songsincode

Here’s a little bit of coffee break fun for geeks and code monkeys.

Songsincode memeToday’s trending topics picked up perhaps the geekiest, funniest, in-jokiest hashtag to hit Twitter yet — the #songsincode meme.

The idea is relatively self-apparent to anyone familiar with code and likely completely and utterly baffling to those not. Simply take any well know song title/lyric and represent it as code. I’m amazed at how at how much this meme has captured the imagination, with literally thousands of musical nerds trying to outdo each other.
