This 80s song talks about tech that was still decades in the future

Every time I hear this particular song, all I hear is them singing about a popular phone. It’s Def Leppard “Pour Some Sugar On Me”. Check out the first minute and tell me I’m wrong that in the first minute they sing about a “red iPhone”…

Living like a lover with a red iPhone.

If your lover has a red iPhone, treat them to dinner because they dropped at least $700 for that red iPhone. That’s the cheapest new iPhone 11 you’ll find. Check them out here.

Supposedly the actual lyrics are “living like a lover with a radar phone.” But who ever had a radar phone? I think these guys were decades ahead of the tech curve!

Are there any other bands that had lyrics mentioning tech that hadn’t existed yet? Chime in below!
