This is what we need. More music with naturally flowing lyrics containing references to go terminology.
I don't know if any of you follow Anna Rudolf, but she perpetrated this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4xsUAe4fzs with her more musical collaborator who in turn has composed some rather ...something... songs containing chess terms.

With or without ko
With or without ko
I can't live
With or without ko
And you give your stones away
And you give your stones away
And you give
And you give
And you give your stones away

Awesome!

“Swamii Nairtsepur” posted this same song in that there FB group today, including the lyrics, so … putting it in YouTube tags and adding the lyrics so that we can sing along all together here:

Chris Linn, “The Game Of GO” [1981 Swedish New-Wave]
The lyrics:
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go

You sit there on your pillow
With your both legs crossed beneath
Sunk into deep concentration, I wonder
What will your next move be?

I played a good fuseki
But I lose the semeai

Atariiiiiiii
Atariiiiiiii

Tell me time and time again
When we play the game of go

Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go

Though you give me three stones
I have to fight like mad
You seem to catch up so easily
From that disadvantage that you had

I started with a big moyo
then you just come crashing in, saying

Atariiiiiiii
Atariiiiiiii

Tell me time and time again
When we play the game of go

(Japanese talking here)

Atariiiiiiii
Atariiiiiiii

Tell me time and time again
When we play the game of Go

Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go

The yose soon ended (The game of Go)
The game seems pretty close (The game of Go)
Hey, It turned into a jigo (The game of Go)
And no one had had to lose (The game of Go)

Aaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaah

Atariiiiiiii
Atariiiiiiii

Tell me time and time again
When we play the game of go

Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuh

Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh

Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go
Go, Go; the game of Go

For when it gets exciting:
The Stranglers - (Have You Got) Enough Time
Excerpt:
You're Maybe Looking For A Sign Of Life
You Hope It's Gonna Save Your Life

It may not be everyone's musical preference, but it does seem to relate to go.
(anyway, that's how many of my games go :) )
It can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1_0vsshvMk
