Every year, I enjoy making a tech-themed parody out of a Christmas song. This year is no exception. Welcome to “Blue Vista”.
We were talking about Christmas and Vista both in the chat room today. Someone laughed and mentioned “Blue Vista Christmas” and inspiration struck. I took a few minutes, jotted down some lyrics, and a parody was born. I recorded my efforts a capella, and uploaded them… along with the music only version of Blue Christmas. Some of our chat members then took both of them and mixed them together. The result is the song you hear in the video.
My invitation to all of you is to download the .mp3 yourself. Play with it… make it a video, add pictures, whatever! Just be sure to give credit where credit is due. If there is a really excellent video made, I’ll likely add it to my own YouTube account. Be sure and send me a link to what you’ve done with the .mp3. I’d love to see it! Without further ado… the lyrics:
I’ve had a blue desktop with Vista.
I’ve been so blue. XP, I’ve missed ya.
Dialogs popping up thanks to UAC.
Just ain’t the same, dear. At least it’s not ME.
And with those blue wallpapers with white text
I can… wait a minute… that’s not a wallpaper.
What the hell’s a STOP ERROR. IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL?
And I had a blue, blue blue blue screen.
Oh, Windows Vista… why ya gotta do this to me?
Cancel or allow? Of course I want you to allow.
If I didn’t want you to allow, I wouldn’t have done it in the first
Step on my blue suede shoes if you wanna, I don’t care.
Just get better, please. Please?!
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Leopard in sight,
But I’ll have a blue, blue Vista.
Again, that link to download is HERE.
