Geekiest song ever: A Cryptography song entitled “Crypto”


musical-crypto.jpg“I looked through my mp3 collection and found some really geeky and funny songs. I thought, why not add a little more fun to my blog! The songs are really geeky and my readers might like them.

I’ll be posting a song each Friday until I run out of songs (I have 6 songs at the moment, and maybe I find some more). I’ll also try to add some comments, what it is about, in case someone has not enough geekiness to understand it.

The first song I present to you, as the title suggests, is about cryptography. Particularly about a cracker trying to defeat a 56 bit and 128 bit symmetric key algorithms, such as DES or RC4, used in secure online communications. Note that 56 bit symmetric keys are no longer recommended as they can be broken in no time with special hardware and modern computers.

Song’s title is “Crypto” and as I found out, it is a parody of Banana Boat Song by Harry Belafonte.”

Here are the lyrics:

Crypto
It’s in Crypto
Crypto come and the crook go home

Safe?
Is it safe?
It’s all safe
Pretty safe
It’s okay
It’s okay-o
Cracker come but he won’t break code

World get small when the internet come
Online come and we shop from home
Download the software ’till the morning’s done
Daylight come and me hard drive full
Punch in my credit card order me a dancer
Dancer come and me g-string go
Come Mr. Businessman join in the bonanza
Shopper come and the overhead’s low

56 bit key is a great big bunch
Crypto come and the crook go home
128 bit even harder to crunch
Cracker try but he just grow old

Crypto,
It’s in Crypto
Crypto come and the cash can flow

Safe?
Is it safe?
It’s all safe
Pretty safe
It’s okay
It’s okay-o

Crypto come and the crook get born
