GUEST,Bradfordian Review: Daniel Kelly, the IoT song (3) Review: Daniel Kelly, the IoT song 21 Feb 19

Two things really,
1. The IoT Song
2. Daniel Kelly singer/songwriter

The IoT (Internet of Things) song is based on the melody of the spiritual song Dem Dry Bones composed by James Weldon Johnson. The new lyrics (below) were composed by Daniel Kelly.
It is an updated story of connections; not physical connections but the connections achieved by wireless technology! If you are not familiar now with the creeping progress being made it wont be long before it catches up with you!
Most of you will relate to these self explanitary lyrics, an interesting commentary on our modern times.

The IoT Song. Lyrics by Daniel Kelly, melody by James Weldon Johnson

My watch is connected to my iPhone,
And the iPhone’s connected to my macbook
And my macbook’s connected to my i-Home
Don’t know where my data is stored,

Them phones, them phones, them i-Phones x 3
Don’t know where my data is stored.

Now my Facebook’s connected to my Snapchat,
And my Snapchat’s connected to Tinder,
And my Tinder got shared on 4chan,
Now I’m a Reddit karma lord.

Them phones.......

Now my fridge is connected to my toaster,
And my toaster is connected to the wifi,
My wifi’s connected to the cloud guy,
Who works for the N.S.A.

Them phones.....

Now my TV’s connected to my Xbox
And my Xbox’s connected to Netflix,
And My Netflix’s connected to my credit card,
Gonna be a victim of identity fraud.

Them phones.....

(N.S.A. = National Security Asociation [of United States of America])
