My One and Only OneNote


What happens when you put together a dedicated Test Manager, a loyalty-inspiring hot product, and some talent for music? You get the next great underground internet music hit: My One and Only OneNote. (click to listen – recommend you open the link in another tab/window so you can follow the lyrics as you listen)


Mike Tholfsen, OneNote’s multi-talented, community oriented and fierce customer advocate Test Manager has crafted a hit with this one. Here are the lyrics (you can see them on Mike’s page but I’ll save you the click). We have all been marveling today (when he sprung this on us) at how he worked in phrases like “XML APIs” and “merge and replication”. Mike, I bow to the prodigious display of talent. Now we just need a video. Anyone?


My One and Only OneNote


Let me tell you ’bout my favorite application
A software notebook for the modern age
One place for all of your notes
Put any type of content on the digital page

A flexible tool that works the way you do
Organize your stuff how you want to
Brainstorms or meeting notes or doing web research
Capture, find, share and re-use

No other software can make me feel this way

My one and only OneNote
My one and only OneNote
My one and only OneNote
It’s the one for me

Use a shared notebook for group collaboration 
Or start a live sharing session with your friends
Like a rich wiki with merge and replication
Everyone’s in sync when the meeting ends

Tables, tags, clippings, instant search and Lasso
Drawing tools, embedded files and hyperlinks
XML APIs and caching all your data
Outlook integration and digital ink

No other software can make me feel this way

My one and only OneNote
My one and only OneNote
My one and only OneNote
It’s the one for me

It’s part of the 2007 Office System
Download OneNote for a 60 day trial
Give it a chance and I promise you
It will change the way you work and leave you with a smile

No other software can make me feel this way

My one and only OneNote
My one and only OneNote
My one and only OneNote
It’s the one for me

    By the way, you don’t need to launch the MP3 in a new tab. At least with Windows Media Player, the lyrics appear in the caption area on the bottom of the screen. :)
