Robot Scorpions

Posted by shanoah on August 23, 2008

Rock Me Amadeus? I’m so tempted to go with music from Mozart right now.

Instead, I think I’ll go with German music right now. You see, I recall another song with “Rock Me” in the title by a German band:

Rock Me Like a Hurricane – The Scorpions

This ever popular hard rock song is also notable in another way. It is off their album “Animal Magnetism”, which you may recall off the list of worst album covers ever.

This one, specifically:

Bad, isn’t it? Next, a duet between Joachim Witt and Peter Heppner. You may need to turn the sound down a bit:

Die Flut – Joachim Witt and Peter Heppner

Wow. I just find this song mesmerizing. I was curious, and googled the lyrics in English, as well, and they live up to the song.

All right, now turn the volume back up for this one, as it’s fairly quiet:

The Robots – Kraftwerk

Not the most complex of lyrics, this is still pretty cool. It reminds me of that episode of the Twilight Zone where the mannequin come to life[1].
