Then this might have been a better match:


It's in our decade (although the original tune is much older), and it's
provided publicly and in an open way, and it finds itself in close touch
with the masses, and, apparently, the masses really do love it.

For those not familiar with the German language (it's Kraftwerk, afterall):
The song is about data, computers, and a lot of related and interrelated
real world issues. But let's forget about the technicalities for the moment,
it's simply a great song, isn't it? :-)
