What songs do you want to hear for today's coffee break? (MPR Graphic / Tracy Kompelien)

Earlier this morning on Throbbing Hive, Wits' host John Moe told us about smart TVs that capture and transmit our conversations to an unspecified third party.

Because our devices are evidently listening to us, let's do a Coffee Break they'd probably enjoy: So we're asking for songs that reference technology. It can be old or new technology — gadgets, gizmos, devices, machines … whatever tech references come to mind is fair game.

For today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs that name-drop technology would you like to hear?

Songs Played

The Flaming Lips - "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1"

Electric Light Orchestra - "Telephone Line"

Darkel - "TV Destroy"

Lou Reed - "Satellite of Love"

Kraftwerk - "Pocket Calculator"
