Everyone gets to choose their song. Hold down a key so the last half of the second verse is heard by the computer at proper time.

Be great for the boss to hear: Happy Birthday, Camp Town Races, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, etc. as people stumble in to the office. Would know who is in and who is late. Half Drunk sales people whose voices have altered Singing over and over in order to check email.

Be bad for hackers as they would need a voice recording of each user singing their song. Not something a computer in say India can grind out over night.

What song would you? Nevermind that would be a list.

       No. Just no.   

       As someone with decent pitch discrimination but no ability to reproduce pitches accurately, I don't even like to hear myself sing. Trust me when I say no one else wants to hear it either.

       A group in Sweden (Uppsala University, I think) did actually develop a security system based on belching. Belches have frequency profiles which depend intimately on the anatomy of the oesophagus, and are difficult or impossible to imitate or disguise. I'll see if I can find a link.

       I saw something similar using the unique sound of each person's sneeze. Maybe it was on here…   

       Anyway, effectively kinda baked; see [link].
