IntyBASIC music: Soon May the Wellerman Come


Recommended Posts

So in case anyone has missed out on one of the latest TikTok (and YouTube) trends, here my Intellivision version of the New Zealand ballad Soon May the Wellerman Come (often wrongly referred to as a sea shanty). It is thought to have been penned around 1860-1870, rediscovered in the mid-late 1960's and recorded a handful of times, most recently by The Longest Johns. Then suddenly in December 2020 it became a viral trend and now is nearly everywhere. Quite catchy little tune as well.


Feel free to use it, anyone who can benefit from some short IntyBASIC music.

Well done! That needs to go on your Youtube channel with a Tik Tok link! :)

Perhaps I can upload it to the community project?


Edit: Booh, they only want vocals, not instrumental parts. I suppose I'd have to learn how to tame the IntelliVoice in that case.
