REWIND: Kraftwerk - 'Computer Love'

The group who changed my mind about synth music forever, how could I not be converted by awesome tracks such as this? In the very late 90's (although it may have been the year 2000) my school friend Jason B gave me a recorded cassette tape, one side containing 'The Man Machine' and the other 'Computer World'. From then on, I no longer believed that 80's music was shite... 'Computer Love' (German version title: "Computerliebe") was released on the 1981 album 'Computer World' and as a single in the same year. The song, on a double A-sided single with 'The Model' ( a song originally released in 1978) went to #1 in the UK Singles Chart. The melody of "Computer Love" was later used in Coldplay's song 'Talk'...
