The distant future, the year 2000
The distant future, the year 2000
The distant future, the distant future
It is the distant future, the year 2000
We are robots

The world is quite different ever since
The robotic uprising of the late nineties
There is no more unhappiness, affirmative

We no longer say yes, instead we say affirmative
Yes, affir-affirmative
Unless we know the other robot really well

There is no more unethical treatment of the elephants
Well, there’s no more elephants, so ah, but still it’s good

There’s only one kind of dance, the robot
And the robo-boogie
Oh and the ro, two kinds of dances
But there are no more humans
Finally robotic beings rule the world

Here’s a robot-themed playlist I made. It has pieces ranging from the hilarious to the chilling and frisson-inducing , but they’re all in some way inspired by science fiction and humanity’s dream of spawning a synthetic version of itself.

Featuring: Vangelis, Flight of the Conchords, Kraftwerk, Röyksopp, Giorgio Moroder, Radiohead, Daft Punk, Voltaire, Tomáš Dvořák and Styx.
