I've often suspected that the lyrics of most pop songs could be written by a computer...now I have proof :)
Here's a song that uses the universal mathematical constant Pi as its lyrics.
If you want to sing-a-long-a-digits, here are a few to get you started... :)
Some bonus Pi music/songs:

I have had two life-long puzzles I have been working on...One of them is trying to trisect an angle without anything but a pencil and a compass....The other is cracking Pi. I gave up on the angle one a while back-but Pi has still been a puzzle that I believe will be cracked one day.
Pi is an irrational number-it has no end to it, and just goes on forever and ever. I have tried all sorts of things with Pi- and also have toyed with it on Piano.
I know this is a weird pursuit, but it is just me. I do not even have a degree in Math- I just got hooked when taking geometry, and haven't quit.
God created everything and I figure that there must be some sort of way to make sense of irrational numbers. Pi is like the God particle of Math, I think.
There logically must be some sense to PI- it is, after all, the ratio of the radius of a circle to its circumference, and the circle is a perfect figure, in my eyes. Why would that ratio be irrational? It does not make sense. There has to be some way to make sense of this ratio, and other irrational numbers.
I already saw that video and it is kinda neat, Stingray. Thanks for bringing it up to us.
I don't agree with your premise, though. It is not logical.
Pop music is simple.
Computers can do simple things.
Therefore, computers can write pop songs.
Not so great though is it! I disagree Stingray - beautiful music comes from the heart and is inspired.
This has got me thinking about the relationship between Maths and Music - a teacher who is brilliant at the piano told me that some people play with the heart (they feel the music) and others play using a mathematical pattern type thinking. I think I should be able to tell the difference but I've never noticed or pursued it to find out more.
