Adobe's CEO Shantanu Narayen was introduced and then the hall filled with the strains of Buffalo Springfield's flower power protest anthem, "For What It's Worth."
I've always liked this song and probably tapped a toe or two to the chimey intro. But, after a couple of lines of lyrics, it became painfully clear that Adobe had hired some soundalikes to rewrite the song to suit their own warped agenda.
Here's how here it went as best as I could transcribe it:
There's something happening here
And what it is, is exactly clear
There's a man with a phone in his hand
Telling us he has a new plan
There's battle lines being drawn Easy profits? Well those days are gone Young people speaking their mind We better listen, or we'll fall further behind
