I Read a Blog Today, Oh Boy

I Read a Blog Today, Oh Boy

We Boomers (and our elders) grew up in a world of land lines, rotary phones, newspapers and snail mail. (Some of us even remember Western Union!) Now that these things are becoming obsolete, the pop songs that referred to them are also in danger of becoming obsolete. To prevent this calamity and keep the music of our youth relevant, we’ve updated a few of these song titles:

I Just Skyped To Say I Love You

Rikki Don’t Lose That Hashtag

Gonna Sit Right Down and Send Myself an Email

Return to Spammer

Please, Mr. UPS Guy

Take an Email, Maria

Help Me, Reverse Lookup, I need Memphis Tennessee

London Texting

The Dangling IM

Love Tweets in the Sand

Signed Saved Hit Send ( I’m Yours)

Hanging on the Iphone5

Tweet Me!

Wichita Microwave Mast Maintenance Mechanic

All My Sexting

How long will be it before these updated versions too become obsolete? The answer, my friends, is blogging in the wind.

(Bio: Roz Warren and Richard Bready will both be appearing in ORIGINAL BAD GIRL, an upcoming documentary about “Sylvia” creator Nicole Hollander.)

    Another great post, Roz. I think about this type of thing when I see reruns of Seinfeld. If they’d had cell phones back then, half of their plot lines would be thrown out the window,
