Dem Phones, Dem Phones, Dem iPhones! The Delta Rhythm Boys' most iconic song brought up to date (well, as of 2007). An unadulterated original for comparison. (via every link blog I follow, traced back to everlasting blort; previous bones)

I don't quite get how this is a recruiting tool, but that was fantastic version. Really clever reuse of "connected" and well done musically. Though they could have done a tad better with the details: about half of the things they list actually connect, the other half just dont. Email doesn't really connect to a chatroom.

My favorite version:

"No. 48: De bones is yours, daddy. They came from you, big daddy..."

Judge: 'Sir, do you approve of the proceedings?'
No. 6: 'I.....note them."

I'll see your Prisoner and raise you a Ruling Class.
Clearly this song has a strange prominence in works of British surrealism. Any one have any idea why?
