Before I click, is this the evil Flashdance ripoff?

[edit: It is *shudder*. I think this sample was taken from the video floating around the net of the 1984 Mac intro.]

There's now a higher quality version uploaded.
unfortunately, it's just a higher quality RECORDING, not a higher quality song.

Oh. Oh gosh. It makes me want to die. Or something. Definitely not buy Apple products.

Here’s a little gem guaranteed to make even the biggest Apple fanatic consider buying a Dell.

Point is, that was Apple's corporate anthem. If it makes enthusiasts want to buy Dell, what does it do to the poor Apple employees? And if there are any current or past employees out there with access to other Apple theme songs from the years, please do share :D

PS how do you make a word a clickable link in the updated posting system for MR.

It used to be click the link button, add url then add word. I don't get that option anymore...

If you thought that was bad, there's a video (http://rapidshare.de/files/7314711/We_Are_Apple.mov.html) (20 MB) too!

Got me for a while as well. :)

Type the word you want to be the link first, highlight it & then hit the link button to insert the URL.

ps Where is your avatar from - it looks familiar.

You need to scroll down to the bottom, click the "free" button, wait the 20 or so seconds while the thing that says "download ticket reserved, wait x seconds" counts down, then click on the link.

It was the Sharewaredemon.

No worries. Bizarre thing though - my tip worked fine for me at work on IE6 on my Windows machine, but not here at home on my Mac. Weird

I haven't played Exile, but I am working my way through the Avernum games - just completed the first, and starting on the second. Gotta love the retro graphics.

Well, Avernum is basically the same game as Exile, but with updated UI. So you basically get the gist.

Quick work Stridey! Was about to edit my post to make the same point, but you beat me to it. :) Top games both.

Back on topic (:D), one of my friends works for a large accountancy firm, and they still use a corporate song to this day. Truly scary.

More musical genius from Apple is hosted at C|Net (http://insight.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/chips/0,39020436,2127406,00.htm).

[Edit: Some of the old stories seem to be missing, but (un)fortunately they preserved the audio tracks.

Is there someone out there who knows about the details regarding Apple's coporate music (the African chorus theme)? Are there site where could I listen that track? I always hear it on Mac Expos, I like it but dunno much bout it.
