A parody song dedicated to all the pixel pushers out there having to match color samples for print. Good luck with that.

Lyrics
Slight Moves

Went a little too warm could of used some cyan
Bright Red turning slightly brown
going in circles of various tries
Adding points here and there nibbling at the sides
make another try

Way out of gamut where the hues are pretty
output on substrates where they go muddy
working internals, now going too blue

Make another slight move
Trying to match some unreal, vibrant hue
Make another slight move
Round number nine
Let's see number nine number nine

We were so close, no not far from it
Trying to match to some chinese made garment
The night was young but order to get it right
Might take all night
On our screen it matched that elusive hue
On paper it looked like polished poo
RGB, CMYK neither one helped
Let's see round twelve

Make another slight move
Trying to get through awkward client reviews
Make another slight move
Round twenty-nine

Worked all night trying to match that color
Not far off the proofs would wander
Seeing casts of red then green then blue
Strange how making slight moves
It's like you have something to prove
Maybe one more slight move
I feel I'm closing in

Make another, make another
Adjust the levels
Add a curve
Now color balance
Brighten Contrast
Hue and Sat, Gradient map
Selective color
Channel mix, channel mix
Channel mix some black in, oh but it's a slight move
More magenta, more magenta
No more magenta, no more magenta
Mama I should have been a plumber

Been there, done that
and glad I don't have to do it any more. Good job on a cool idea Roy: the backer's terrific and the lyrics are perfect. Slight moves: I love it!

Thoroughly
enjoyed. There could also be a song about the misguided bozos that name the colors meringue, bayberry, licorice, nightingale and zephyr. ???

Clever idea, Roy, really well executed. The lyrics brought a smile to my face and it was good to hear the quality backer. Definitely brought back memories - on several levels. Much enjoyed. Thanks, Peter.
