Anybody here ever hear of Jonathan Coulton? You might have heard his stuff anyway.

HE wrote and performed the end credits song for PORTAL. He's also wrote some really funny stuff like:

Tom Cruise Crazy
Skullcrusher Mountain
First of May
Code Monkey
The Future Soon

You can sample a lot of his songs for free over HERE.

Anyone else like him? I think he's freakin' halarious. :D

Fans call it “The programmer's anthem” ;)

Yeah, I've been a fan of JoCo since I first heard “first of May” a little more than a year and a half ago on the gigcast with OzoneOcean.

Still alive was perfect. I kind of like it better when JoCo sings it as opposed to GlaDOS.

Did they play him for that? Wow, that's cool. I remember asking for something by him…

Yes, he's a great singer, I will prolly buy some music from him.

______________
Oh YES man. :)
JUST found the first song by him that I ever loved –> Curl
Heard that on the Gigcast ages ago ^___^
