To Help Create or Recreate That Special WWDC 2009 Feeling

One of the things that I enjoyed about the JavaOne Conferences over the years was the music played at the conference. In the morning live musical performances were played before the kickoff mini-keynote hosted by John Gage (Sun Microsystems’ former Chief Researcher and Vice President of the Science Office) and other Sun executives. Music was also played between sessions. The music was always lively and upbeat and was a welcome addition to the silent sounds offered by developers drifting sleepily in. The music was vibrant and mood setting. While WWDC did not have live music each morning followed by a mini-keynote they did play music between sessions which I enjoyed. So if you were not able to make it to WWDC or want to recreate that WWDC feeling here is a very short playlist of some of the songs that were played:

The Bourgeois Blues, Ry Cooder
That’s Not My Name, The Ting Tings
So What, P!nk
Circus, Britney Spears
Stir It Up, Bob Marley / The Wailers
Don’t Stop Believing, Glee

Heaven, Los Lonely Boys
Ghosts In My Machine, Annie Lennox
