What would be a good theme tune for TW?

I found it at … The Ting Tings - That's Not My Name (lyrics) - YouTube
@Ste_W it’s a song, it’s a song, calling, it’s a song that deserves it’s name, Catchy refrain.
I don’t know the lyrics, but I do like the song: I Am a Man Of Constant Sorrow | O Brother, Where Art Thou? | Screen Bites - YouTube
… The problem is, we can’t use any of the them, because we don’t own them
My other thought was Insomnia by Faithless for those “I’ll just tweak/ add/ tinker/ update this on more thing” late night sessions!

You just have to pay for a license to use them (mechanical license IIRC). If music wasn’t allowed to be used, the music industry would die.
that is a great song!
I will “read” this thread soon, but can I suggest also a sound, one which is not copywritten that we can add to the splash screen, like when windows starts.
Perhaps if we make a choice, an agreement and link to a theme song people can buy? and a couple of short extracts.
It has to be something people can choose to use or not. I find startup sound annoying. Think about it, most of us open several TW’s following links. Are we always doing that in places where it is appropriate to be noisy?
Agreed, but if one wants to, it would be nice to have a standard and licence free way to do so. We can set the volume low, make if short, even selectable.
Ciao @TW_Tones, just FYI, somewhere back in GG history there was a theme tune written, I think, for TW. I just can’t find it.
Personally I do like the idea of having a TW “riff”, or as they say in movies, a “sting”— i.e. a short memorable “sound phrase”.
But I do agree with @Birthe that it should only be opt-in, not any kind of obligatory startup ping.
Overall, what I often trying to point at, is the artistic aspects of any sustained human activity. It lightens the load.
The jingle for tiddlywiki was written by @Maans. It was originally linked on Tiddlywiki.com but I think deleted because it was not playing any more from that link.
It was played in one of the hangouts also.
I’ve got it!!!
Some great tunes were suggested but they are wrong!
The official soundtrack to The Tiddlywiki Platform is:
Everything is Awesome from the Lego Movie!
TW Platform. You know what’s awesome? EVERYTHING
