Andrew makes songs based on your ideas.
And sometimes he just makes songs.
But anyway, suggest something?

It’s been a gradual transition that wasn’t always even apparent to me, but I can definitively say now that my work will be focused more on my YouTube channel than this website. (Though a redesign is on its way that will integrate the two a bit more anyway.)
Of course, all the songs here will stay up for your enjoyment – some might even be made into videos in the near future. :) I will also continue to do commissions.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement over the years. Things are getting bigger and better and I hope you’ll stay on this magic carpet ride with me forever!

You made the Stephen Is The Awesome song me for about 1.5 years ago. Are you available for a new song commission? This next song will be “Internet Heroes”, people with influence and smarts that caused today’s internet:
Ryan Dahl: creating Node.js
Audrey Tang: Autodidacticism pusher, you spread this idea, it was you. Hug and embrace your internet trolls.
Ingy Dot Net: inspires creativity, amazing, Ingy once stepped out on stage completely naked at a tech conference. CPAN lord and master.
Jonathan Swartz: What did this guy do? Uh, don’t know. Why is Jonathan in this song?
Larry Wall: Making all the Perls. Larry is strapping in Hawaiian Shirts. Larry, why is Perl an Onion?
Steve Souders: Making the web faster.
Jeremy Zawodny: Jeremy has a lot of cats. Jeremy likes Sphinx and MySQL, or maybe he hates Sphinx and MySQL because he merged them at Craig’s List.
James Gosling: YOU made the JAVA HELL.
Igor Sysoev: PubNub uses Nginx (pronouced “Engine X”). Igor helped those Ruby on Rails folks, creating the greatest free proxy software load balancer.
Rasmus Lerdorf: What took so long to add Closures to PHP? And why no lexical scoping in PHP? IT IS NOT SCOPE LEAKAGE.
Linus Torvalds: Builder of the right way! The force worthy of cosmic points for creating Linux.
Bjarne Stroustrup: C Plus Plus, Lame. You created this high level compiler out of BS.
Guido van Rossum: Thanks for the Python!
David Heinemeier Hansson: Made Ruby Sexy with Rails.
Yukihiro Matsumoto: Ruby is Awesome. Ruby is Sexy.
Eight core contributors formed the foundation of the original Apache Group: Brian Behlendorf, Roy T. Fielding, Rob Hartill, David Robinson, Cliff Skolnick, Randy Terbush, Robert S. Thau, Andrew Wilson
Jarkko Hietaniemi: Master Librarian, Comprehensive Perl Archive Network. The CPAN Disclaimer is REALLY OUTDATED. Ruby Gems outshining CPAN, end of an era?
Joe Armstrong: Erlang woot!
Make this song Andrew Style. We want you to make this song in the way you know is good, not what we think, because we don’t know how to make songs.
The song will accompany an article on our website.

I’m looking to have a song written for my girlfrind for her 30th birthday in January.
Rhian loves 80’s music, dance music and some top 40 stuff. Her iPod has a lot of Kylie, George Michael, Janet/Michael jackson, scissor sisters, etc.
Rhian’s full name is Rhian Sioned Davies. Rhian is pronounced “Rhee-an” or “Ian” with an “R” in front. She is the youngest of three. Her family moved to quartile when she was only about 2 years old. They also told her she was left by the gypsies! = )
Rhian grew up on what she fondly calls the “north side”. An expensive and well to do part of Sydney that mostly refined people live in. However she now lives in the northern territory in “Darwin”
Rhian has also been known to impersonate crocodiles but then says “they can do it better than I can”
Rhian played international football. She was a defender and the team wore green and gold.
Rhian now works as a paramedic/ambulance officer, and they wear an ENTIRE outfit of dark green! (something about a green gerkin)
Rhian is also a massive scaredy cat! She hates scary moves and has been known to push others in front of her when faced with a threat…
Rhian’s most distinguishing feature would definitely be her laugh! It comes from the belly and can turn the head of anyone within a 100 metre radius!
Rhian can be messy.
She gives 150% in anything she does.
Rhian watches the same movies repeatedly but laughs like it’s the 1st time she heard the joke.
Some of the quirky things about Rhiannon include, but are by no means limited to;
* motion sickness – she is terrible on ANY mode of transport! She will vomit driving down a straight road with a slight curve, or the rocking motion of a train!!
* KFC’s “2’piece feed” – she likes to have her picnic and is incapable of conversation while she eats it
* hair twirling – she twirls strands of hair around her finger then flicks the end with her fingers. Getting her attention while she does this is like performing an exorcism. She gets in a trance and she’s gone!
Rhian often gets many a compliment about her tight backside (and plays up to it too!) and brings it out every time she hits the dance floor. It’s called “buun-gee shaking”
Can be quite emotional and will ALWAYS cry watching TV and movies! Even cried watching a McDonalds ad!
Rhian once performed in a drag show at a gay club called “ARQ” with friends. If you could include a reference possibly with “it’s hot in here” ( in a high pitched Women’s voice). Apparently Rhian had to say this and it came out really high!
Rhian also has fond memories of sneaking into “spicy friday’s” at the landsdown hotel for a quiet dance and a couple of drinks. Instead she was always hammered and stayed there till she was kicked out or too ill to stay.

My mom is having a knee replacement so I wanted a song to cheer her up/let her know how much I (and my family) love her/make her feel special. It would be great if it could be a short, upbeat, fun song. Here are things she likes: cute dogs, yard sales, eating dinner with her shoes off, Orangutans, beer, scrabble. Her name is Colleen.
I’d love a George Clinton-style song!
It doesn’t have to be at all about her knee. In fact, it’d be better if it’s just about how great she is. We have a dog named Henry who is a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon (a purebred rare breed and it’s apparently pronounced GriffOn, like “gone”).
Ooh, inside jokes:
“I agwEE but I not UGwee” (pretty self-explanatory, we were talking in a funny accent and the two words sounded the same with the emphasis changed)
“No tacks!” = a boy in her preschool used to put thumb tacks in his mouth, so he started saying this when he was proud of himself for obeying by NOT having a mouthful of tacks.
Other good references:
We like to play poker (for money) and make up different combiations of ridiculous games like “blind baseball dropsie”.
We love going yard-sale-ing.
A boy in her preschool touched her breast and said “I like your shirt. My mom doesn’t have shirt like these!” There have been many somewhat inappropriate but funny things the preschoolers have said about her breasts. Even just saying “all the preschoolers like her shirt” would be funny.
