Windows XP, aka the operating system that people and corporations just won’t let go of even though they really should, has more to contribute to the world than occasional malware outbreaks. While so far it hasn’t been as celebrated as, say, Windows 95, the OS will never leave popular culture when it’s been everywhere for almost two decades.

That’s probably why “artist, producer and DJ” ROMderful felt the need to its startup music, taking the six-second chime and making it a full R&B song about a girl who should message him. The musician previously paid homage to blue screen errors with his project but this one leans more heavily into the PC nostalgia.
