We Built This City On Rock’n’Roll by Cecilie Bjørgås Jordheim

We Built This City On Rock’n’ Roll

Cecilie Bjørgås Jordheim says:

In 1985, the band Starship released the song We Built This City which quickly became a hit. The lyrics describes the youthful idealism of a city built on rock’n roll, free from the corporate world. However, in order to construct the skyline of the city in the lyrics, the text has been deconstructed after several rounds in Google Translate, a free translation tool. In this way, We Built This City has built a city.
