Geeks Just Wanna Have Fun = #songsincode

By Alex Walker

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.

It certainly got some snickers and woops around the SitePoint HQ and elicited our own contributions.
