Nerdy Songs

Jason posted a tweet about writing songs this afternoon and I must have been in a particularly suggestible post-nap state and instantly came up with several extremely nerdy song titles. I think almost all of these fall into to Nerd Country n’ Western, but whatever. Here they are:

  • I’m Semantic, But Wow, You’re Well-Formed
  • Since You Left, I’ve Been in Plain Old Semantic Hell
  • Why Do Our Tags Have to Branch?
  • If You Won’t Mock My Markup, I Won’t Jeer Your Scripts
  • What’s in a DOCTYPE?
  • I Sold My Soul to the W3C, and All I Got Was a Long-Sleeved Tee
  • Baby, It’s Not Really a Microformat!
  • Let’s Go Home and Append Some Child Nodes to Your DOM
  • If You Leave, All I’ll Have is Twitter\
    I’m sorry. I really am, but you’re welcome to add to the nerdy nonsense in the comments…

  1. Ooooh…puns this bad are referred to as “bad Daddy jokes” in our house. These might be a category all their own though.

  2. Love them. When are you gonna lay ’em down in vinyl?
    BTW, here’s one I hear often in my wee little head:
    bq.f you can’t give me validation, then I won’t wear your badge.
    Yeah, that’s country,
