Jonathan Mann claims he has written and recorded an original song every day since January 2009. According to his Wikipedia entry:

  • His most viewed video, “The iPhone Antenna Song,” was played by Apple CEO Steve Jobs at the start of the iPhone 4 press conference.
  • The commercial tune “Bing Goes the Internet” won a jingle contest sponsored by Microsoft Bing, yet was deemed “the worst jingle in the world” by the website Techcrunch.
  • Hey, Paul Krugman!,” a song dedicated to economist Paul Krugman, was performed live on the Rachel Maddow Show.
  • Janet Hill, the wife of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, commissioned Mann to produce a song in honor of Wozniak’s 60th birthday. The song “That’s Just the Woz,” was noted as Wozniak described the composition as the “best present she’d ever received.”

.

Song number 2,078 is devoted to Apple’s 9/9 event. It’s one of Mann’s better efforts, although its final refrain, speculating about what guys are likely to draw on their Apple Watches, is not entirely safe for office viewing.
