Last week, we reported, rather breathlessly, that “Microsoft Songsmith Makes Everybody A Composer!”
Here’s Microsoft’s ad for Songsmith:
Microsoft Songsmith promises to let you create fully arranged songs by just singing into your computer. You sing, it adds music and nobody gets hurt, right?
We’ve heard what Microsoft can do – and it’s not pretty. Give these example a listen and lets us know what you think!
7 Reasons To Hate Microsoft Songsmith:
#1: It Emasculates Metallica.
Metallica’s Enter Sandman + Microsoft Songsmith = Enter Songsmith. It also = a bag of suck.
We didn’t think it was possible to emasculate Metallica – but Songsmith can do it.
Unfortunately, that’s just the beginning.
#2: It Turns “Wonderwall” Into Crappy Techno
#3 Somebody Remixed The Songsmith Ad And It Could Make You Spew Coffee Through Your Nose
#4: Songsmith turns The Polices’s Roxanne Into An Awful Calypso Tune
This video shows what Microsoft Songsmith can do with The Police’s classic, Roxanne. Imagine if the classics of the past had been written with the help of Songsmith.
#5: Songsmith is not “Just What I Needed”
#6 It Can Ruin Your Music, Even When You’re A Dead Guy
#7 It Can Make Rickrolling Even More Annoying
And the extra bonus reason to hate Microsoft Songsmith: they forgot the cowbell!

If that isn’t enough Songsmith to scorch your eardrums – don’t miss out on the remixes at Radio Clash.
