Wierd connection right? But ever since I started using Vista, I have had the song “Have a Heart” (from Nick of Time) pop in my head frequently. There is something about the tone and length of the “Default Beep” (Windows Ding.wav) that matches the very first “Hey!” of that song! (Though of course Bonnie Raitt sings it a million times lovlier than my computer.) It’s crazy. “I can name that tune in one note!”, right? But still, every single time that beep sounds, the tune starts up in my head and I finally had to share this.
The joke here is that Microsoft actually hired Robert Fripp to create the many of the sounds in WIndows Vista, though I don’t think the little Ding comes from anywhere but a computer.
