Songs of the (multimedia) civil war

As part of my blog series on multimedia history I will be covering the "civil war" that took place between 2011-2016. Here are some of the top songs from the era. They kept the troops going.


Of course if you want to sing along you can find the actual song, listen to it once, and then sing to yourself with the tune. If you need instrumentals comment down below.


Mike Niedermayer

("irish volunteer"/"new york volunteer")


'Twas in the days of twenty-eleven

When freemen young and old

All fought for Independence then

Each hero brave and bold!

'Twas then the noble Zig and Zag

In triumph did appear

And defended by brave codecs

The MPEG Volunteers

'Tis my delight to march and fight

Like Mike Niedermayer! 


Now, there's our own Hoyos

Just see what he has done:

The first to offer to the peg's

To keep submitting patches

To improve the great MPEG

And the zag they love so dear!


And they've done their duty nobly,

Like Mike Niedermayer! 

'Tis my delight to march and fight

Like Mike Niedermayer! 

The Rebels out in Barbato-land

They madly raved and swore,

They'd let none of our top committers

Improve their dirty patches


But the Viennan Regiment

No traitors did they fear

But fought their way to Birrun-land

Like Mike Niedermayer! 


'Tis my delight to march and fight

Like Mike Niedermayer! 


Bring Back Libav to Luca

(bonnie blue flag)


Libav lies over the ocean

Libav lies over the sea

Libav lies over the ocean

Oh, bring back Libav to Luca...

 

Bring back, bring back

Oh, bring back Libav to Luca, to Luca

Bring back, bring back

Oh, bring back Libav to Luca


Oh blow patches over the ocean

Oh blow patches over the sea

Oh blow patches over the ocean

and bring back libav to Luca


Bring back, bring back

Oh, bring libav to Luca, to Diego

Bring back, bring back

Oh, bring back my Bonnie to Luca


Last night as Luca applied no patches

Last night as Birrun kept on complainin'

Last night as Bultje went back to 'mpeg

I saw that libav was dead


Bring back, bring back

Oh, bring back libav to Luca, to Derek

Bring back, bring back

Oh, bring back libav to Luca


Now Luca is working on rav1e

Fiona has jumped down to sea

The patches have blown over the ocean

And libav is now dead


Bring back, bring back

Oh, bring back libav to Luca, to Luca

Bring back, bring back

Oh, bring back libav to Luca
