Microsoft latest greatest epic FAIL is Microsoft Songsmith, a program that matches your vocal stylings along with muzak so cheesy and disgusting that even all the glow in the dark towels in the world wouldn’t allow you to clean up the mess.
“Microsoft Songsmith generates musical accompaniment to match a singer’s voice. Just choose a musical style, sing into your microphone, and Songsmith will create backing music for you.”
First, too truly understand the wonder that is Songsmith, you MUST see Microsoft’s introduction video.
Ever since Microsoft Songsmith was introduced, people all over the internets have been going nuts creating Songsmith-i-fied versions of classic songs…
For example, who ever knew Roxanne by The Police could sound so caliente!?
And who could not love the lilting lounge-iocity of Creep by Radiohead.
And of course, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the TECHNOasis version of Wonderwall or the sad sad version of Just What I Needed by The Cars… but given that it’s an important day in history for black americans, we’ll close this post with Microsoft Songsmith’s interpretation of What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye.
