Great songs about robots…

29 Nov

There are some great songs about robots out there. There are also some not-so-great songs about robots out there, go figure! Some of these songs might fit rather loosely into the ‘robot’ category, but they’re all good songs regardless.

If you have trouble listening to any of the songs below, you can find the playlist on my Grooveshark page.

Flight of the Conchords – Robots

Grandaddy – Jed the Humanoid

The Flaming Lips – One More Robot/Sympathy 3000-21

GLaDOS – Still Alive (written by Jonathan Coulton)

Deltron 3030 – Upgrade (A Brymar College Course)

Kraftwerk – The Robots

Did I leave anything out? Let me know in the comments! (That last one is for you, Evan).

    Great original concept for a playlist. I think i may have to create one myself, with all credit due of course. Love the inclusion of Deltron 3030 and Flight of the Conchords. Can’t say i’ve heard any of the other ones but will definitely check em out. Great post 🙂

    Also some ones i found you may or may not have heard
    Institute – Save the Robots
    Kyle Andrews – Make me Feel Human
    Regina Spektor – Machine
    Styx – Mr. Roboto??? or maybe that was just too obvious to include.

    Honorable Mention:
    Portishead – Machine Gun (Not necessarily about robots but the song itself makes me think of sexy robot warfare…what could be better than that)

    panda bear had a song called “we built a robot” on his first release which I think is a rare thing I stumbled onto somewhere on the interwebs.
    but here is a youtube of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnqITF3odF4
