MINDSTREAM TOPIC: Digital Love

Posted by Mack of Sound-Savvy On 9:15 PM


Tonight on Mindstream, we discussed the topic of technology and relationships. Is technology affecting our intimate relationships? From a music standpoint, technology has been the driving force behind some of the hottest and most popular songs. So Sound-Savvy gives you it's countdown of the top 5 "Digital Love" songs.



Artist: Zapp and Roger
Song: Computer Love

This is the song that probably started the whole trend between technology and relationships. It’s definitely one of the most sampled songs in R&B music and became infamous for it’s use of the talk box and voice augmentation similar to the vocoder.




Artist: Soulja Boy feat. Sammie
Song: Kiss Me Thru The Phone

It’s a lil childish, and while I’m not a huge fan of Soulja Boy, I respect how he’s always so catchy. This song is about using technology when you can’t be with the one you love to send something as small as a kiss.




Artist: 50 Cent and Justin Timberlake
Song: Ayo Technology

This next joint keeps it real. Sometimes technology is good and serves its purpose when distance is the issue, but sometimes you get tired of it and need some one-to-one contact. 50 Cent and Justin Timberlake came together over a crazy Timbaland beat to deliver this joint.




Artist: Usher
Song: Dot Com (previously unreleased)

This is an unreleased track from this Usher's 8701 album and it’s very metaphoric. It discusses the trend of cyber sex and how it can be an intimate turn-on. CyberSex is taboo to a lot of people, but Usher doesn’t hold back with his desires, and let it be known, this isn’t the only song he’s made about cyber sex.




Artist: Raheem Devaughn
Song: Text Messages

I particularly like this song because everyone who has a cell phone today can relate to this joint. Raheem Devaughn explores the new trend of “sexting” which is sending sexy messages through SMS or texting. He even gives you some ideas on what to say. Reppin the DMV, the neo-soul hippie rockstar did his thing with this joint!.
