Song: Waiting to Load ♪

A short song about the frustrations of slow websites, especially on mobile.

Go to the song’s SoundCloud page to download, leave a comment, etc.

Lyrics

My heart is pounding as I step off the train
So excited to finally see you again.
I forgot the address of our meeting place tonight
So I get out my phone and check the website.

But there's nothing on the screen, nothing at all
No words appear as I scroll
I picture you sitting alone
As I wait for this website to load
Tired and frustrated
Scared I won't make it
And still this website won't load

Song: On The Web ♪

The other day Joe Leech tweeted that he’s “thinking about writing a sit-com about web designers. Best friends Mark Down and Rich Snippets and their hilarious adventures.” Well a sitcom needs a cheesy theme tune so here’s my crack at writing a short song for it. Now all we need are a script, location, actors, production staff…

Lyrics

Monday morning, climb the stairs and reach my desk.
Inbox going crazy with so many change requests.

Just another day at our web design agency
Without the clients this would surely be
The perfect industry

We spend hours in front of a screen
Fuelled by sandwiches and caffeine
But it's worth it 'cause across the globe, our work will soon be seen
On the web

There's a new frontier
On the web
Nice bunch of people here
On the web
You can join us too
On the web
Yeah, it must be true
It's on the web, on the web, on the web.
On the web.
