Funny, I was just talking about Kraftwerk yesterday. This will end up to be a Top 5 poll, so I'll start from there. :)

That one that sounds like machinery going on in the background.
Cannot remember the name of it.

So many fun, robot-friendly songs…

Richard Humm29 May 2012 12:35 p.m. PST

Trans-Europ Express, but Autobahn. The Robots, The Model, Radioactivity and Tour De France would make up the top five.

I must admit to preferring Neu! for my Krautrock, though….

Glengarry 429 May 2012 12:48 p.m. PST

Neon lights…

The longest version of Autobahn you can come up with.

Cyrus the Great29 May 2012 6:32 p.m. PST

Autobahn and The Model.

Personal logo Shaun Travers Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 6:35 p.m. PST

Metropolis (From the Man-Machine)

The Robots a close second

Honourable mentions to:

The Model
Music Non Stop
Neon Lights

But really, they are all good.

How strange.
I was just looking for my Kraftwerk CDs today…

Etranger29 May 2012 9:58 p.m. PST

Tour De France.

Bill Bailey does a great tribute to Kraftwerk link

Khusrau30 May 2012 5:33 a.m. PST

Etranger just beat me to it. I laughed till I hurt at one concert where he did Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' in the style of Kraftwerk.

Martin Rapier30 May 2012 8:48 a.m. PST

It is very hard ot pick a favourite. A top five in no particular order might be:

Trans Europe Express
Showroom Dummies
Pocket Calculator
Metal on Metal

if forced to pick one it would be TEE, ideally the longest remix you can find.

John D Salt30 May 2012 9:21 a.m. PST

I like Bill Bailey's take on this:

All the best,

My favorite is Trans Europe Express, while my five year old daughter loves The Robots, and goes around singing "We Are the Robots, dee dee dee dee"

Personal logo Cardinal Hawkwood Supporting Member of TMP31 May 2012 4:22 a.m. PST

all ofthe above..

religon31 May 2012 4:28 a.m. PST

Not a huge fan, but I like Metropolis (The Man-Machine). I like the cover better than the songs.


PapaSync31 May 2012 6:30 a.m. PST

Trans Europe Express . . .
