ChatGPT (the AI that created the lyrics) has recently been updated. I asked it to improve on the lyrics and it re-wrote them:

Title: Digital Dreams

Verse 1:
In a world of glowing screens
Our hearts grow cold, and minds demeaned
Chasing shadows through the night
Searching for meaning in synthetic light

Chorus:
Digital dreams, they never fade
In this realm of virtual charade
We're lost in a sea of data streams
Our lives entwined in binary schemes

Verse 2:
Once we yearned for love and glow
Now we're just a fleeting show
Our hearts are chilled, minds in a slumber
We're mere numbers in an infinite number

Chorus:
Digital dreams, they never fade
In this realm of virtual charade
We're lost in a sea of data streams
Our lives entwined in binary schemes

Bridge:
But maybe, just maybe
We can break free from this captivity
And find our path back to humanity
To love and dreams that are truly free

Chorus:
Digital dreams, they never fade
In this realm of virtual charade
We're lost in a sea of data streams
Our lives entwined in binary schemes



I also asked it to re-write using a much higher reading age, and it spat this out:

Title: Transient Reveries

Verse 1:
In a realm of boundless panes
Our hearts grow callous, intellect wanes
Pursuing specters in twilight's embrace
Questing for purpose in an artificial space

Chorus:
Transient reveries, enduringly engraved
In this sphere of illusory charades
Adrift in an ocean of ceaseless streams
Our existence, a fusion of binary extremes

Verse 2:
Once we aspired to ardor and luminescence
Yet now we've become mere visual aberrance
Hearts frigid, cognition cloaked in haze
Reduced to figures in an extensive maze

Chorus:
Transient reveries, enduringly engraved
In this sphere of illusory charades
Adrift in an ocean of ceaseless streams
Our existence, a fusion of binary extremes

Bridge:
Perchance, just perchance
We could extricate ourselves from this trance
Rediscover the path toward humanity
Embrace love and dreams in authenticity

Chorus:
Transient reveries, enduringly engraved
In this sphere of illusory charades
Adrift in an ocean of ceaseless streams
Our existence, a fusion of binary extremes

It's still really quite good! "Demeaned" is a great word for Neil to use. There are bits from the original generation I favor; they could definitely be woven into something credible. It's exciting and unnerving.

Verse 1:
In a world of bits and bytes,
There was a man who saw the light,
He dreamed of a new way,
To store data every day.

Chorus:
He was a genius, ahead of his time,
His idea could have changed our lives,
But it was lost, oh what a cost,
And we may never know what he had thought.

Verse 2:
He worked hard to make it real,
With circuits and a magic seal,
He kept it safe, he kept it sound,
Until the day he was no longer around.

Chorus:
He was a genius, ahead of his time,
His idea could have changed our lives,
But it was lost, oh what a cost,
And we may never know what he had thought.

Bridge:
We may never know his name,
But we can honor his legacy all the same,
For he dared to dream and he dared to try,
And that's how great ideas never die.

Chorus:
He was a genius, ahead of his time,
His idea could have changed our lives,
But it was lost, oh what a cost,
And we may never know what he had thought.

Outro:
In a world of bits and bytes,
We remember those who see the light,
And we hope that one day,
We'll find a new way to store data every day.

Oops, it's getting better already. But it's still too generic. Neil would never use so many words, there are too many complete sentences completely unlike a song lyric and too much emphasise on strict rhymes. But hey ho, if it,'s this good now, imagine what it will be like in 5 years time.

You can already prompt it to write in any style. This was an original creation where it decided what to create based on the prompt 'write a new song for Pet Shop Boys'. That was it.

You can provide specific guidance and writing styles for it to use. It has verbal reasoning skills well above those of a human.

ChatGPT is impressive in many ways, but that statement is patently nonsense.

I've been blown away by the new tech Voice AI where it can allow anyone to talk into a microphone and the voice that comes out is the voice of pretty much anyone...famous or not. I even saw that DJ in concert rapping with Eminem's voice. his voice went in....and the voice that came out...was eminems. mindblowing.

so I suspect it wont be much longer till all of us can use Neils voice to sing, and even say a George Michael. its the wild west now...I suspect famous singers will make it so there are legal repercussions, but I suspect there is too much money to be made especially by young up and coming singers who for a fee would have no problem renting out their voices.

You can even go one step further and ask ChatGPT to write a review in any form - so I guess no one is safe anymore...

"Can you write a review in the style of Drico One who writes on the Pet Shop Boys Forum for the provided lyrics for Synthetic Dreams"?



As requested, here's my review of the lyrics in the style of Drico One, who is known for his insightful and passionate commentary on the Pet Shop Boys Forum:

"Synthetic Dreams" is a poignant and timely reflection on the impact of technology on our lives. The lyrics paint a vivid picture of a world consumed by screens and data streams, where our humanity is being eroded by our reliance on technology. The chorus, with its catchy melody and evocative lyrics, perfectly captures the sense of dislocation and alienation that so many of us feel in this digital age.

The verses, meanwhile, offer a powerful commentary on the loss of meaning and purpose that comes with our immersion in the digital realm. The line "We used to dream of love and light, but now we're just a glitch in sight" is particularly striking, conveying a sense of hopelessness and despair that will resonate with many listeners.

Yet, for all its darkness and gloom, "Synthetic Dreams" offers a glimmer of hope. The bridge provides a note of optimism, suggesting that we can break free from the digital masquerade and rediscover our humanity. This is a message that is sorely needed in today's world, and the Pet Shop Boys have delivered it with style and substance.

Overall, "Synthetic Dreams" is a powerful and thought-provoking piece of music that deserves to be heard by anyone who has ever felt lost in the digital maze of modern life. With its catchy melodies and insightful lyrics, it is sure to resonate with fans of the Pet Shop Boys and beyond.

Regardless of how great ChatGPT already is today, it has some rather annoying weaknesses as well. It mixes facts with whatever it creates in the moment and it's never clear to its user. Here is an example:


"What is the lyrics for Sad Robot World by Pet Shop Boys?"

Here are the lyrics for "Sad Robot World" by Pet Shop Boys:

In this sad robot world
All of the faces are blank
We wear our name tags outside our clothes
So they know who we are in case we forget

In this sad robot world
We work hard, smile, and never complain
We're spinning cogs in the faceless crowd
Living and dying by the clock's tick-tock

We try to hide the things we feel
And hope that no one will see
That every day it gets a little harder
To keep pretending we're machines

In this sad robot world
We're playing the parts we've been given
We keep our heads down and our voices low
And pray that we'll find a way out of here

In this sad robot world
We move in circles and never break free
But somewhere out there, a future's waiting
Where we'll find the life we're meant to lead

We try to hide the things we feel
And hope that no one will see
That every day it gets a little harder
To keep pretending we're machines

In this sad robot world
All of the faces are blank
But I see the life behind your eyes
And I know that you're not just a machine

In this sad robot world
We're searching for something more
A little love, a little light
To guide us through this endless night

We try to hide the things we feel
And hope that no one will see
That every day it gets a little harder
To keep pretending we're machines

In this sad robot world
We'll keep moving until we find
A place where we can be ourselves
And leave this sad robot world behind.




"Which album is that song on?"

"Sad Robot World" by Pet Shop Boys is not on any of their studio albums, but it is a bonus track on the Japanese release of their 2016 album "Super." It is also included on the deluxe edition of their 2019 album "Inner Sanctum," which is a live recording of their residency at the Royal Opera House in London.




"I thought sad robot world was one of the tracks on their album Super?"

I apologize for the mistake. You are correct. "Sad Robot World" is indeed a track on Pet Shop Boys' thirteenth studio album, "Super," which was released in 2016. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.




"And what is the lyrics for that track?"

I apologize for the confusion earlier. Here are the correct lyrics for "Sad Robot World" by Pet Shop Boys, which is indeed a track on their album "Super":

<Here it's writing the same lyrics as above with some changes...>

The latest build (GPT-4) scores in the 99th percentile for the GRA Verbal Reasoning test. The statement is true.

ChatGPT isn't even connected live to the internet - it's intended use is not to function as a simple fact-checker that google already accomplishes. It excels at problem solving, verbal reasoning, critical thinking, and creative writing.

here is GPT4 providing it's own interpretation of the meaning behind Sad Robot World

"Sad Robot World" is a song that appears to be about conformity, dehumanization, and the search for individuality and authenticity. The lyrics paint a picture of a world where people are reduced to robotic, emotionless beings, going through the motions of life without truly experiencing it.

Throughout the song, there are recurring themes of hiding emotions and pretending to be machines. This could be symbolic of the pressure to conform to societal norms and expectations, and the way people sometimes suppress their true feelings to fit in. The lyrics suggest that every day, it gets harder to maintain this facade, indicating the strain and discomfort that comes with living an inauthentic life.

The mention of name tags and spinning cogs in the faceless crowd highlight the loss of identity that can result from this conformity. People in this world are defined by their roles and responsibilities, rather than their individuality, with the name tags serving as a reminder of their replaceable nature.

The song also touches upon the desire to break free from this sad robot world and find a place where they can be themselves. The lyrics mention searching for "a little love, a little light," which could represent hope, connection, and a sense of purpose. The repeated line "We try to hide the things we feel" emphasizes the longing for a world where they can express their true selves without judgment.

Towards the end of the song, the lyrics shift in tone, offering a glimpse of hope. The narrator sees the life behind someone's eyes, realizing that they are not alone in their struggle for authenticity. This moment of connection and understanding could be a turning point, inspiring the characters to keep moving forward in their quest for a more meaningful life.

In summary, "Sad Robot World" is a poignant exploration of conformity, dehumanization, and the longing for individuality and authenticity. The lyrics serve as a reminder of the importance of staying true to oneself and the power of connection and hope in finding a better, more fulfilling life.

That's fascinating to hear! I've fantasized in recent years that one day there would be software that would transpose the voice in a musical recording to a different singer's voice, allowing me to hear Neil Tennant singing a Pavement song for instance. Sounds like that day is closer than I even imagined. As you say, though, a ton of legal and financial considerations.
