"to" and "going" both sound hilarious. especially when repeated endlessly.

It's surprisingly easy to get "bleeped", but still very entertaining. Thanks, MintSauce.

okay - somebody needs to share some lyrics.

I finally managed to get it to sing "it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood" by changing "neighborhood" to "neighbor good", which was pretty funny:

It's a beautiful day in the neighbor good, a beautiful day in the neighbor good

won't you be my neighbor?

definitely needs more words.

They need multiple instances of the same word that they can cycle through.. especially commonly used song words like "I" and "baby"... :-)

Great link.

This reminds me of radio stations that have call-in contests to identify the artist and title of individual words from a number of different songs. Some of the songs are very identifiable through a single word, but others are much harder to figure out.

It's also interesting to see that they've only entered a small number of words from any given song. For example, I believe that "man" is from "When a Man Loves a Woman" (Percy Sledge). But they're a still missing words like dime (as in "spend his very last dime" from the same song).

Could this be due to legal restrictions?

I tried the first three lines of "Love Her Madly" by The Doors. It caused me to add "madly" and "badly" to the database.

I don't know about hours of fun, but it's an interesting concept.

neurodoc - I would imagine they only want one word from each song, so that you don't end up with multiple instances of the same song.

This is fun!

I just added a few words to the database myself. : )

I tried to copy/paste my thesis. I'm afraid they need a LOT more words to turn that into a singalong.

Here's a good starter word list to get you composing some music... All of the following words work fine.

I finally made a good one for a friend who has kidney stones (which is kid + need + stone). It's even in haiku form. "Need" is great as is "sorry". This is so much fun!
