As an intermediate programmer and longtime music snob, I was tickled when the #songsincode meme awoke on Twitter last year. I've been thinking about it a lot lately.

The idea is pretty simple. Take an excerpt of a song's lyrics, and code it in the language of your choice (for me, it's Java).

The problem is, I don't listen to a lot of mainstream music. So I'm curious to know how many denizens of Chit Chat will recognize my contributions.

So here's my challenge: I want to know how many of you can name the song's title and artist or composer. I'm really curious to know if at least one person can recognize all of them.

I'm picking artists that have sizable cult followings, although none of them can be reasonably considered "mainstream."

At stake is absolutely nothing at all. Not even a filthy GeekPenny. Just my undying respect, for maybe a week or two.

Please be sure to use spoiler tags for all your guesses!

So let's start off with a few relatively easy ones:

Challenge #1
switch iTake {
case 1:
you.leave(me);
break;
case 2:
family();
break;
case 3:
heartache();
break;
case 4:
headaches();
break;
case 5:
lonely();
break;
case 6:
sorrow();
break;
case 7:
tomorrow.dispose();
break;
case 8:
//TODO: What was this for?
break;
case 9:
god.lose();
break;
case 10:
for (int i = 0; i < 4; i++) {
everything++;
}
break;
}


Challenge #2:
while(myself.getThings().length>1) {
you.madeItGoAway(all);
myself.getThings().remove(0);
}
myself.scare();


Getting a little harder...
Challenge #3:
assertTrue(me.lie(everyone.tell("You were a good wife")));

assertTrue(you.isDead());
assertTrue(us.isDead());


Challenge #4:
pianoLid.Open();
Thread.Sleep(273000);
pianoLid.Close();


Challenge #5:
me.go(veranda);
miranda.go(veranda);
while(seagulls.isCrying()) {
me.fall();
miranda.fall();

me.getSoul().fly();
miranda.getSoul().fly();
}

me.dispose();
miranda.dispose();


Challenge #6:
while(engineer.getBack().isTurned()) {
waveArms(passengerTrain.getWindow());
us.act(Fashion.IRRESPONSIBLE);
}

Dammit, my post keeps getting truncated. Here are the last two. I'd be delighted if anyone gets these:

Challenge #7:
int casioTone = 0;
do {
casioTone += 5;
System.out.println(casioTone);
}
while(casioTone < = 100);


Challenge #8:
if(me.isBored()) {
me.drink(new Bleach());
}

It's always refreshing to see someone working in a place that *clearly* doesn't do drug-testing....

oh? I shall "beg to differ" on this, as they *clearly* WERE some 'drug-test participant' with their resultant "side effect" of what they're conducting displayed right HERE as well, and a quite nasty ONE at that!

while(false) { give(you,up); let(you,down); run(new Circle()); desert(you); you.cry(); say(”goodbye”); lie(); you.hurt();}

I knew there had to be a Rick Roll version of this.
