Web 2.0 in pop?

Listenting to the Box Tops' 'The Letter' this morning, I found myself wondering when we're going to see more references to modern technology in pop songs.


Mousse T gave a technically vague mention of sending a message through the internet 'but it rejected' , way back in '98. Since then I've not been aware of any songs mentioning something similar.


We need up to date lyrics along the lines of -


'Get me an online checkin for an aeroplane - my baby just sent me a tweet'.


'Hangin' on your Facebook status update'.


'Text and shout'.


...that sort of thing.


I think Girls Aloud would be a good group for a social media related ballad. I suggest a feisty 'strong women' type missive about removing an ex-boyfriend from your social networking circle.


Verse -


Am


Don't poke me via Facebook 'cos I ain't gonna reply


G


The days of textin' me daily have all gone by


F


Your tweets mean nothin', your emails less


D


My heart's deleted you baby, I must confess


Em


It's time for me to stand strooong


F


And wipe your from my liiiiife


C


You're nothing more to me no more than redundant bits on my hard drive.

Kate Perry has recorded a song in Simlish, the language of the Sims... does that count for anything you think?
