As most of you probably know by now, Jeff Robbins from Lullabot and Drupal genre recently released "The Drupal Song". What you may not know is that Wordpress and Joomla! also have their own songs. Well this fact hasn't gone unnoticed by Amy Stephen in her own blog in which she says it's time to vote for the top song of the week.
OK. Normally, I am adverse to pitting one open source content management system against the other, but it appears we have no choice. As of today, we have three songs and only one can be the #1 Open Source CMS Song of the Week. It is time to pick the winner. Sorry, it’s how it works. I didn’t make the rules. If you object, you need to contact Casey Casem.
WordPress community member Devin Reams released his song and video back in January. Joomla! community member Anand Omka released his Joomla! song back in November and the video was released last week. Today, Jeff Robins released his Drupal song and Dries Buytaert announced the video will be shot on location during the OSCMS conference at Yahoo later this week.
Any has invited the open source communities to vote for their "favorite song" and as far as I can tell, the vote will take place through comments at her blog. What? Wordpress and and Joomla don't have their own poll module built into their core? But alas, we're not voting for the best CMS here but instead the best song.
Finally, Amy reminds us that we should "try to be open minded as you listen. It’s only fair. These are frail artist egos we are dealing with here." At this time, there is no word yet whether the open source communities will eventually come together to record "We are the Tech World".
