[livejournal.com profile] ladysisyphus, I see your Tweenbots wandering the streets of New York, and I raise you Classic Queen on Classic Electronics.

I hate things that buzz. That this youtube clip got me actually LIKING a buzzy thing is astounding. I realized it was my favorite instrument in this... and then I realized it was going to get to rock out on one of my favorite parts of the song... and then it did in fact rock out.

I am full of love for technology.

ETA: By the way, did I mention that I only found out last week that the song's actual title is "Daisy Bell?" And just now I found out it was first sung by an IBM 704 in 1962 at Bell Labs Murray Hill. (And Clarke happened to be visiting, so he lifted the idea of a computer singing "Daisy Bell" and made it famous.) Oh, the internets, I love you so.
