Forms in Song

Posted By Shannon Lerner, Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Filling in a form is a universal experience, for better or worse. As forms professionals, our goal is to make the experience better, but often completing a form is the butt-end of a joke. At the risk of being labelled a romantic, here are a couple of love songs with lyrics about completing a form.

 

Completing a simple customer experience survey? There's a song about that. In George Strait's Check Yes or No, Emmylou gets caught passing a note to her childhood crush in class:

Do you love me?

Do you wanna be my friend?

And if you do, well then don't be afraid to take me by the hand, if you want to.

I think this is how love goes. Check 'yes' or 'no'.

Although her question didn't follow best practices by combining two distinct questions in one—I mean, what would a nice young man answer if he only wanted to be friends?—Emmylou's survey question was successful at obtaining a clear answer: the song ends with a 20th anniversary celebration.

 

Is it a contract? Or a request for service? The Beatles covered both in When I'm 64:

Give me your answer, fill in a form:

Mine for evermore.

Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-four? 

Despite the confusion about the purpose of this form—establishing ownership of one's heart versus an agreement for long term care—this hit endures.
