Girl Machine : Johnny Walsh

25 posts and still no Kraftwerk! Not even any Gary Numan!! There's plenty of  'top X robot songs'  lists available online, but the majority tend to feature the same handful of songs about robots that everyone knows, plus a bundle of songs that aren't about robots yet feature robots in the video. Sorry people but a robot in a music video isn't enough to qualify, so the rap-tastic Intergalactic by The Beastie Boys won't be featured here. But what about Kraftwerk?   There's plenty of time to post the robot songs everyone knows and loves, so for the time being, I'm going to continue routing under the radar to bring you the lesser known robots songs.

Written as the male response to Connie Francis' Robot Man is Johnny Walsh's Girl Machine from 1961.

I don't know about you but I'll give that a '2' for effort.
