"On Green Dolphin Street"-(per Wikipedia)-In 1977, Denon's music company Denon Records, a division of Nippon Columbia, became the first record label to record a first of all digitally recorded commercial album using their state-of-the-art "Denon 034 multi-track system". The album wasArchie Shepp's On Green Dolphin Street, became the first digitally-recorded album in the history of Jazz music but didn't include yet the vocals.

"01100100-01101001-01100111
01101001-01110100-01100001
01101100"- This actually translates to "Digital" in 8bit binary code

lyrics

From the highs of Ones
to the lows of Aughts
We dig it all in Digitalistan

On Green Dolphin Street
We organize Bloops and Bleeps
Into the soundtrack of Digitalistan

We were victorious against Analogoria
with no loss of resolution
Their magnetic charges
were not at all that harmful
We were lossless

binary:
01100100-01101001-01100111
01101001-01110100-01100001
01101100

Our hearts are organized
in tiny rows we march in code
in Digitalistan
from the transistor shores
to the halls of great code
in Digitalistan

we are fast and accurate
our simplicity is our genius
we develop random features
that spread throughout the land
we have duality and individuality
flourishing throughout the land

...until we see the blue screen
