Hey, don't dis Kraftwerk... :)

Kraftwerk - Pocket Calculator (1981)
www.youtube.com

Lyrics...

genius.com

...
I'm the operator
With my pocket calculator
I'm the operator
With my pocket calculator

I am adding
And subtracting
I'm controlling
And composing

I'm the operator
With my pocket calculator
I'm the operator
With my pocket calculator
I am adding
And subtracting
I'm controlling
And composing

By pressing down a special key
It plays a little melody
By pressing down a special key
It plays a little melody

I'm the operator
With my pocket calculator
I'm the operator
With my pocket calculator
...


Yeah, they don't write lyrics like that anymore.

(some may say, thankfully...)

I meant if you're posting something from 2007, Kraftwerk did it better 40 years earlier.

Fuji Kraze - Shinunoga E-Wa Live 2020

Marco Plex and Oscar & The Wolf - All Night - Twenty six measures of just robotic handclaps still works with a great singer and vibe.

The part where Yoshimi goes off (part 2) is a bit lackluster in the cover... but that would be tough to replicate. )
