Web 2.0 in pop?
By christophersaul on Jun 14, 2009
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.
Don't poke me via Facebook 'cos I ain't gonna reply
The days of textin' me daily have all gone by
Your tweets mean nothin', your emails less
My heart's deleted you baby, I must confess
It's time for me to stand strooong
And wipe your from my liiiiife
You're nothing more to me no more than redundant bits on my hard drive.
