Want to make your computer sing a song?

We don’t like it when our computers get too smart (cough, Terminator movies). But even we can’t resist the charming Web site Let Them Sing it for You, which allows you to type in lyrics and have your computer sing them back to you .

Created by Eric Bünger, as an interactive Web project for the Internet art platform SRc of the Swedish National Radio, the site uses a clever mishmash of spliced rock songs for each word. (Is that Chris Isaak we hear on the pronoun “I”?) Have your computer sing that you look pretty today, or email a friend a little ditty. It won’t recognize every word, but we can tell you from our experimentations that it does know quite a few smutty ones. Enjoy!
