Song of the contract programming firm, and other filks

I heard a different version of the same idea at Boskone once, but here is a pretty good send-up of what might occur at a customer review session.  (Warning, however: Low production values.) Also, in case you missed them, considerably funnier are a couple of classic Star Trek filksongs, especially the first.

While I’m on the subject, a couple of more serious filksongs I really like are:

Other great serious filksongs are “Queen of Air and Darkness” (Poul Anderson lyrics) and Jordin Kare’s “When the Ship Lifts, All Debts Are Paid”, but I can’t find recordings of those now.

And finally, back to the humor: I just found a video to a song I posted previously.

    As far as “The Queen of Air and Darkness,” the group Clam Chowder (well-known in filk circles) recorded it and included it on more then one of their albums. I believe their most recent CD has it. It can be ordered through their website, and you can also see a listing of songs from their more recent CDs.

    That would be the one at, it would seem. 🙂
