Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Poll Our piece last week highlighting Dutch "media investment management" outfit MindShare's version of Donna Summer's She works hard for the money provoked a mini snowstorm of emails pointing us towards some truly Mephistophelean corporate anthems - musical works so hideous that prolonged exposure to them would certainly result in insanity and eventual death.

Well, we've spent a few hours in a lead-lined, soundproof room working through your recommendations, and have whittled these Melodies of Satan down to three contenders which we hereby provide in mp3 format for your listening pleasure:

First up is the apocalyptically bad Drupa anthem - celebrating all that is good in Düsseldorf and the world of paper.

However, Drupa will find it has some tough competition from the The Association of International Glaucoma Societies. Now, we're certain this charitable concern is doing top-notch work in tackling glaucoma, but it seems a shame to undo all of that with a "hymn", the sole purpose of which appears to be to provoke the listener to tear off his ears with pliers.

And finally, where would we be without the legendary KPMG ditty, which has for years defined the "we've completely lost our marbles" corporate anthem paradigm. (In case you haven't suffered enough, check out the KPMG Jungle Mix courtesy of phrenetic.org who, to be frank, should be bloody ashamed of themselves.)

Enough. The rest is up to you...

And the worst corporate anthem is:

Drupa 1986 Song
Glaucoma Hymn
KPMG
