“By pressing down a special key, it plays a little melody”

Song: Pocket Calculator
Artist: Kraftwerk
Album: Computer World

Another wonderful little nerdy technopop nugget from Die Deutschen Roboter. I shied from “Computer Love” this time, for fear of wasting time talking about Coldplay; instead, I present this thing. What a fun song. I say this with no irony,  I like how the special “melody” is pretty much a bunch of boops and beeps. Hell, I don’t have a button that does that. For piffle, it’s pretty darn good, and humorous. And we say Germans are no fun.

Nice album cover too, green screen and all. Retro is in these days, I hear.
