In a testament to the growing mainstream acceptance of bitcoin, members of the music industry have decided to get creative and make up songs about the cryptocurrency. Some have been remaking existing songs to infuse a twist on bitcoin while others are coming up with their own compositions.
For instance, in a new twist on Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” an artist named Naomi Brockwell penned a song called “Bitcoin Girl” which is currently the most viewed bitcoin cover. It even features a music video where she plays a data-mining, Economist-reading modern woman lusted after by a man who’s stuck with paper money and coins.
Songs About Bitcoin
YouTuber Kryptina opted to rework Selena Gomez’s “Love You Like a Love Song” with “Love You Like A Bitcoin” and has a music video on the site as well. Even bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto got his own ballad thanks to country singer John Barrett’s “Ode to Satoshi (The Official Bitcoin Song).”
Some have gone beyond to creating rap music revolving bitcoin, with a few songs containing explicit lyrics. Elderly rapper named bitcoin penned “Internet Bucks” in singing about how bitcoin can replace fiat currency.
These songs which are mostly viewable online increase awareness of the cryptocurrency, which is still struggling to shake off its negative reputation from being dragged into the Silk Road debacle. At the moment, the biggest challenge for the cryptocurrency seems to be the increase in regulatory oversight, with many bitcoin enthusiasts worried that this could stifle innovation.
If the recent songs on bitcoin are any indication, it seems that the younger internet population are definitely welcoming the latest developments and are considering the cryptocurrency one of the crucial means in giving more power to the people and away from the governments.
