Eighth Day : Hazel O'Connor

I loved this song when I was a kid, but didn't really pick up on its robotic connection until a couple of weeks ago. Taken from the film Breaking Glass and released in 1980 (the year the future began), the song Eighth Day presents another of those dystopic scenarios in which man makes machine then machine breaks man. However the film itself is not about robots. It's about a pop stars sudden rise to fame and her inability to cope with it. It'll seem quite dated these days I guess but worth a re-watch one day. Anyway, enough about the film and on with the song...
