Tunefruit is Going Bananas: Does Mother’s Day music even exist?

Tunefruit-Is-Going-Bananas

 

Hey there.

It’s sort of funny to think about, but does Mother’s Day really have a specific type of music that the holiday is associated with?

Is it all happy ukulele and bouncy rhythms like this track: Ukulele Music For Mother’s Day

Or maybe it’s lovey-dovey (is that how you spell that totally crazy word thing?) and kind-hearted piano music: Piano Music For Mother’s Day

You know what, it’s probably more about the strings and harps: String and Harp Music for Mother’s Day

Maybe it doesn’t matter…your mom will love you know matter what type of music you license for this gloriously awesome day of mom celebration.

What does a successful venture capitalist and hip hop have in common?  Apparently a lot. Horowitz is co-founder of the famed Silicon Valley venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz. With an investment portfolio that includes Skype, Instagram and Foursquare, Ben Horowitz and partner Marc Andreessen have become extremely successful.  Enter a unique kind of candidate to join their fray: Rap Genius.  The website is self-described as a cross between Wikipedia and an urban dictionary.  Their involvement shows that they believe that the website has far reaching implications beyond the hip hop world.  For starters, Horowitz has stated that hip hop culture is hugely influential in shaping future marketing trends which in turn impact several businesses in different verticals.  The firm invested $15 million back in 2012, with plans to branch out beyond hip hop lyrics into areas such as copyright law and licensing.

In addition to Rap Genius, Ben Horowitz has invited key players into the investment world that may be a surprise to some, like Rapper Nas.  Nas recently teamed up with Ben Horowitz to invest in Tristan Walker’s new startup Bevel.  It’s a company that provided customers with high end shaving tools by mail.  Nas spent some time with Tristan and was very impressed with the company, which prompted the investment.

Horowitz has always used hip hop when describing business concepts (check out his blog).  It can be viewed as quite unconventional to use hip hop lyrics to promote entrepreneurship.  However, the entrepreneurship theme has always been deeply embedded in the culture.  The grind and the theme of “coming from nothing to something” is a concept that all entrepreneurs can relate to.  The fact that the majority of tech entrepreneurs are twenty somethings and may be fans of hip hop themselves makes conveying boring biz school concepts into something more relatable much more powerful.  Non hip-hop fans can also learn something too.

We’re so proud to be a small (but musical!) part of Zendesk‘s very first national broadcast spot. These fine septuagenarians (I’m not checking on the veracity of my statement, so don’t ask)  chat about their relationship through the lens of a business chatting with a customer.

Totes hilarious.

All this fruit can say is…Zendesk is right. Focus on your relationships, be better at Customer service.

There are a few different cuts of the spot, and all of them are funny. Just click on the picture below and, as if by magic, you will be whisked away to all their spots.
