Know how I figured that out? My coworkers are gathered around my boss' desk discussing the relative merits of the song Mr. Roboto by Styx.
They can't think of any.
Current Mood: working
Current Music: Some instrumental version of Don't Cry for Me, Argentina on the Muzak system
The song is responsible for the introduction of limited Japaneese phraises into popular culture
The song has a catchy "hook"
note that both of these could also be sited as what is wrong with the song :3
As far as I'm concerned, the only real problem with that song is that it used to get stuck in my head all the time.

As a Styx Fan
Come talk to me. I can fill you in. In fact, the whole album was a metaphor for runaway technology, fascist religious extremism and the need to keep free speech alive....
It was also a theatrical stage show meant for small venues... a daring risk by the nations biggest band at the time...

Re: As a Styx Fan
Really, a theatrical stage show? I didn't know that. I do understand the point of that particular song (more or less -- I haven't heard it in its greater context).
I like concept albums, so I've always been a little curious about that one and I don't really dislike the song. More than anything I was just amused by the conversation.
Colin, have you got my messages? Call me sometime
Fun things. Aren't Fridays grand? Oh wait...it's Saturday now...
Hi. This comment has nothing to do with Mr. Roboto
and everything to do with this
short video the lovely and talented tlhinganhom

What the hell was that? I've never seen that episode... whatever it was...
The great and mighty Hal informed me that it was a birthday gift to Gene Roddenberry.
