Kraftwerk - The Telephone Call

The Telephone Call is a highlight from Kraftwerk's album Electric Cafe. Like Computer Love, it's a melancholy yearning love song which seems to suit electronic pop so well.

It also reminds me of New Order's Sooner Than You Think, seen here in a live performance for Radio One:

Yes, for some reason both the bass and guitar amps have "GAY SPERM" written across the top. And if you need confirmation that Bernard Sumner is high (beyond his delightful white short shorts), check out this particularly octave-challenged performance of Blue Monday from the same set.
