"The Robots" by Kraftwerk

Birthday wishes go out today to Florian Schneider, founding member of Kraftwerk and therefore an electronic music pioneer; Schnieider's specialty was the flute, which he would filter through a variety of machines to help achieve that distinctive Kraftwerk sound.

The song The Robots originally appeared on the band's seventh album, The Man-Machine; another song from that album, The Model, went all the way to #1 in the UK.
