Sunday Sounds: Songs about Robots.

I’m in the process of moving from Berlin to New York and all the packing is making me feel like a robot. What I thought would take two days has become four and the work is all repetitive. If I only had my own robot to do this stuff for me. At least some of these songs are keeping my feet tapping.

For those interested the move will change me from renter to landlord and yes I will be building an all new studio! Stay tuned…

I created this playlist at Grooveshark. My profile there is: thingstocome

  1. Plug Me In has one of the most ‘entertaining’ music videos I’ve ever seen -definitely not NSFW though so don’t do a search for it unless at home :o

    Is that The Robots off The Mix?

  2. Nice selection! Definitely some classically classic classics in there. Haven’t heard Rockit in ages! How have you found Berlin during your stay? I have been thinking about moving out there next year. Only thing is i feel i need to know more German than i know.

  3. Hey Joe,

    guess your german skills shouldnt be much of a problem, because pretty much all germans speak english and your german will improve a lot from self. Just make sure that instead of moving to a crappy dirty town like Berlin – check out cologne or munich ;)

    Cheers

  4. thanks for checking out grooveshark–and i’m really digging this playlist. any mix that has grandaddy in there somewhere automatically gets my vote.

    anyway, just wanted to give a shout that we really appreciate you rep-ing grooveshark, and i’ll definitely follow you: i’m “bwc”.

  5. Hi Ben. Thanks for your comment. I’ve been trying a few services to make playlists for the Sunday Sounds feature and so far Grooveshark has the largest selection.

  6. Personally I’d have chosed Add N to Xs ‘Metal Fingers in my Body’ with a video even more NSFW than ‘Plug Me In’. Has got a robot in it though. :)

    Anyone else ever hear Berserks ‘Giant Robots’? Can find only one mention of it anywhere: http://www.beefplatter.com/berserk.html, maybe I’ll dig the 7″ out and upload it, a real pop gem.

  7. Might I also add “Robotiko Rejekto” by Robotiko Rejekto. Classic!

  8. Oh man I should have remembered to put Robotiko Rejecto!

  9. A landlord? How cool would it be to have The Horrorist as your landlord?
