simple as NFV
I still think it's odd that there aren't many songs about network functions virtualization.

A slightly underwhelming list
Ludacris?! For Blondie I'd have gone for Call Me.

Two more for consideration:

* Sade, Smooth Operator

* Kraftwerk, The Telephone Call (at a stretch you could also have Transistor)

Lowe blow
C'mon, Paul. You cannot have forgotten Switchbox Susan. Otherwise, ELO kind of owns this category, at least from a quantity perspective. But we are carbon dating ourselves here.

Ludacris? really?
Where's the inspiration??

"Telephone song" - Stevie Ray Vaughn or BB King - great blues

Telephone wire- Bob Dylan - seriously underrated

"I can't hold out"- elmore james blues standard

"Telegraph Road" and "you're so far away from me" by Dire Straits

Ring Ring - Leo Kottke

Ring Ring Ringa - Slum dog millionaire

"Hey you" - Pink Floyd ('sitting naked by the phone'- OK, maybe a stretch)

and if you've gotta be modern,  'Telephone' by Lady Gaga

Re: Lowe blow
I'm not claiming ownership of this one, Dennis. I just happened by. If I ruled the world, 'Private Number' by William Bell and Judy Clay would be in there, not to mention Chuck B's 'Memphis Tennessee'.

Re: A slightly underwhelming list
Given the EU roaming charge changes - the B-52's Roam (if you want to) has to be added to the list.

But in a virtualization context, I think a nod has to go to Pete Townshend and his concept of the grid defined in Early Morning Dreams from Psychoderelict.

Re: Lowe blow
The back of the brain just kicked in with what may be the most evocative track of the modern telecom era: Telstar by the Tornados. An instrumental with lots of quasi-satellite noises. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4B7ypA1fSwU

Re: Lowe blow
Not to mention: "Chantilly Lace" - 'Hello baby, yeah, this is the Big Bopper speaking'   by the Big Bopper. Must be about the same age as Telstar

I firmly believe that Ludacris can do no wrong.

Re: Lowe blow
Like I say, lots and lots of songs reference telecoms, keep up the suggestions and we'll do a reader's choice edition soon enough.
