I made another musical video. This time I remade David Bowie’s excellent “Space Oddity” with lyrics on the subject of ups and downs of indie app development. It should be more accessible to the general population than my previous video about the programming language Swift.
Lyrics are embedded in the video but here they are in full:
App Oddity ~~~~~~~~~~
App Review to Coder Tom App Review to Coder Tom Take your caffeine pills And put your headphones on
App Review to Coder Tom Commencing countdown, you’re logged on. Check submission and may Jobs’ love be with you
This is App Review to Coder Tom You’re featured on first page And the web sites want to know how much you’ve made Now it’s time to go out and celebrate
This is Coder Tom to App Review I’m stepping through the doors And my head spins in a most peculiar way And the App Store’s very different today
For here Am I sitting in my basement Far from outside world Why do I feel blue Is there something I can do?
Though I’m past one million free downloads I can’t see many sales And I think I might’ve chosen wrong way to go Tell my customers I care, ‘cause they should know
App Review to Coder Tom Your app is dead, there’s something wrong Can you fix it Coder Tom Can you fix it Coder Tom Can you hear us Coder Tom Can you…
Here am I lying in my basement Far from outside world All I feel is blue And there’s nothing I can do
