A couple of months ago a chap called Rob Shoesmith approached me after viewing my Youtube Channel to ask if I'd write a song about him. It's not as bonkers as it seems! He is a refuse collector (Bin-man in UK parlance) who has devised an application for the Apple iPhone and he wanted a theme tune to go with any publicity he does.

The long and short of it is that I wrote and recorded the song and it has recently featured as the backing track for a feature that CNN did on Rob. If you are interested, it can be found here: http://edition.cnn.com/video/#/video/tech/2009/09/01/lakhani.uk.apple.ap.man.cnn?iref=videosearch

Excellent. Wish they'd explain the song tho. The average viewer would think. "Mmm? CNN wrote a theme song for this feature?"

Congrats Tony! You're my fave app! ;)
