Favorite songs about technology

Michael Weintraub asks:

What are your favorite songs about technology? In my own thinking I have limited the universe of cases to those whose lyrics deal explicitly with technological innovations and their cultural effects, along the lines of Paul Simon's "Boy in the Bubble" or the Talking Heads' "(Nothing But) Flowers."

Those are good picks.  For me, what comes to mind immediately is XTC's "Factory Brides," "Roads Girdle the Globe" (there should be more songs about infrastructure, no?), Kraftwerk's "Computer World" (and many others), and a number of Byrds songs, including "CTA-102" and "Space Odyssey."  What do you choose?
