Ever Onward I.B.M !
There is a moment in “Pirates of Silicon Valley when white shirt/black tie drones sing a part of “Our I.B.M Salesmen” song from the I.B.M’s official songbook:
“I. B. M., Happy men, smiling all the way.
Oh what fun it is to sell our products night and day.
I. B. M., Watson men, partners of T. J.
In his service to mankind-thatâ€™s why we are so gay”
I.B.M employees were singing those songs for a long time, and this is a well known piece of embarrassing corporate lore. In fact a few people scanned or typed up different versions of the songbook in question. The official band was disbanded in 2001, but it looks like IBM recently created an official “Music Reference Room” where you can see photos and listen to the music clips.
So, I wonder, how long before George Lucas will publish the Star Wars Christmas Special on DVD?
