Code Monkey

In episode 54 of Cast On, Brenda plays a song by Jonathon Coulton called Code Monkey. I love this song! You can listen to it on his website and it is hilarious!

Code Monkey get up get coffee

Code Monkey go to job

Code Monkey have boring meeting

With boring manager Rob

Rob say Code Monkey very dilligent

But his output stink

His code not "functional" or "elegant"

What do Code Monkey think?

Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write god damned login page himself

Code Monkey not say it out loud

Code Monkey not crazy, just proud.

All his music is on the website, thanks to the Creative Commons license. It’s unusual to see an artist happy to do this. You can also buy the separate tracks from several CDs, and there are a bunch of free downloads too.

One thought on “Code Monkey”

  1. I love his music! People have put together videos on YouTube – the video for Ikea is particularly awesome. Code Monkey is my favorite, closely followed by Re: Your Brains and You Ruined Everything (In the Nicest Way.) Code Monkey is such a bitter boy song, but not as much as Future Soon (another awesome Coulton song!)
