Something to Major Tom….

I’ve done and seen a few filk in my time, many of them quite good. Here’s one I just found over at Laetizia Coronet’s blog, Virtual Village Voice:

Linden Lab to Major Tom
Linden Lab to Major Tom
Start the viewer now and put your headset on

[Spoken]
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Connected

Linden Lab to Major Tom
Region handshake, clothing’s on
Check for IMs and may Phil’s love be with you

This is Linden Lab to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the Herald wants to know whose hair you wear
Now it’s time to try some flying if you dare

This is Major Tom to Linden Lab
I’ve pressed the button ‘Fly’
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the world looks very different today

For here
Am I sitting at my desk and
Floating in this world
Second Life is blue
And there’s so much I can do

Though I’m just one hundred minutes old
I’m feeling very skilled
And I think this world is just the way to go
Tell your Phil I love him very much (he knows!)
Major Tom to Linden Lab
My map is red, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Linden Lab?
Can you hear me, Linden Lab?
Can you hear me, Linden Lab?
Can you ….

… here am I frozen in this flight pose
Far above the Grid
Second Life is grey
And I think I’ll go away…

David Bowie, eat your heart out!
