Digital Girl

“Digital Girl” is a modern day parody of Madonna’s classic hit, “Material Girl”. In this time, it’s all about the digital world. So, I’ve changed the lyrics accordingly and made a silly little video for it.

Me trying to look like a dumb blond


Some boys DM, some boys IM
I think they’re the man
But if they don’t like my Facebook Page
then I click on “unfriend”
They can tag, fill my timeline fast
But they can’t see the light (that’s right)
‘Cos we’ll never meet, just spend time tweeting
‘Cos I don’t live offline

‘Cos we are living in a digital world
And I am a digital girl
You know that we are living in a digital world
And I am a digital girl

Some boys Skype me, use Google to find me
That’s alright with me
But if they can’t raise my Pinterest feed
then I have to let them be
Some seduce for some YouTube views
So I put my videos online
I post my photos on Flickr, my thoughts on Twitter
‘Cos I don’t want to stay behind

Living in a digital world
And I am a digital girl
You know that we are living in a digital world
And I am a digital world

I stick my ass up in the camera
Thinking I’m spectacular
I pretend to be celebrity
What?! How come my YouTube views says 3??!
That can’t be right – I’m famous you know

Now friends may come and friends may go
But that’s alright you see
I’ve made it to the Twitterati
And now they’re following me

The Story Behind The Song

How Did The Song Come About?

Actually, I’d bought a new microphone and just want to test it out when I started playing around with the instrumental. When I was younger, I kind of got the nickname “hi-tech girl”, because I was programming a little, designing websites and I kinda new a thing or two about satellite TV – Not all of that knowledge survived unfortunately. The idea just kind of progressed from there to turn “material” into “digital”.

What’s The Song About?

It’s slightly two-sided. On one hand, it’s about these girls online trying to get a sugar daddy. And on the other, it’s also about living totally online and not connecting with people in the real world anymore.


In 2012, I uploaded the video to YouTube. I never even mixed the vocals, ‘cos I didn’t know how to do that back then. So, it’s a raw recording.
