TF18: Kraftwerk & Anita Ward

Anita Ward, Ring my Bell-- 1979


Kraftwerk, It's more fun to compute -- 1981

Mix:
TF18: Kraftwerk & Anita Ward
, 12 mins.

You probably have heard the first one. I like Anita Ward. Second track is a little more obscure, but this original by Kraftwerk is a gem. It has this unique sound that works well with anything. Here "compute" really dominates over "my bell" but the "my bell" lyrics take another dimension. The result, although made from old ingredients feels like it was made yesterday. It also goes to prove that disco and techno have common ancestry. It's a hot track.
