Bonus Links - Jonathan Coulton Music

For your listening pleasure, allow me to recommend this twin spin from Jonathan Coulton, your new favorite Internet singer/songwriter:

1. Chiron Beta Prime (mp3), a little relief from the "Well, Our Producer Says We Had to Record this Christmas Song (And We Only Have Two More Verses To Go Now)" music on the air since last week.

2. Code Monkey (mp3), which can be accompanied by the mesmerizing Guitar Hero wannabe video that visually demonstrates the choppy power chords are a dovetail fit to the monkey-talk lyric style:

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 diligent
But his output stink
His code not functional or elegant
What do code monkey think
I say let's take up a collection and commission a work from this guy. He, ahem, rocks. Chords, lyrics and tab available for you who know how to use them.

What one programming language design and implementation topic would you pay real money to hear a song about?

Update: Corrected lyrics. Revised line break formatting.
