Yeah, you guessed it. A song, made completely out of Windows XP Sounds apart from the drums. It uses these sounds:
Windows XP Windows XP Start Up Theme
Windows XP Critical Stop
Windows XP Error
Windows XP Exclamation
Windows XP Ding
Windows XP Recycle
Windows XP Shut Down Theme

Sorry for the bad name :\, I couldn't think of any othere. I know there are already loads of these on NG, but I decided to try it out myself... It didn't come out that amazing since Windows XP sounds are really hard to work with (for instance, chords don't harmonize, they lag behind the rythm, some are off key, and they aren't the best sounding audio out there...) but I had a blast making it, so I hope you all enjoy it, and please vote and comment :).

P.S.: If anyone wants to know where the Windows XP sounds are, follow this path:

My Computer > Local Disk > WINDOWS > Media

And they're all there, in .wav format.

EDIT (30/07/09): I edited some parts in the song to make it sound better:

Some static in the Windows XP Start Up Theme was removed.
I added two new effects: Windows Log In and Log Out.
I made some instruments which were supposed to be heard more a little louder.
I did some work with the drums.
And I changed the notes of some instruments to make them less repetitive.

I hope it sounds better, and thanks to everyone who enjoyed this :).

I don't care what you said in the skype chat, this is so much better than all your previous songs in every way. Drums are actually pretty okay for once. The main melody is pretty good even. And yeah the different melodies clash horribly as you mentioned. But when there's only main melody, this is actually relatively passable.

Step responds:

Haha, as you know they get worse. At the time I thought that the more stuff you add to the track, the better it gets, so I got completely power-crazy and added tonnes of sound effects to it.

This actually got pretty popular when I submitted it. Probably my second track to reach relative popularity.
