Computer Love (6:39)

Cover of The Mix

From The Mix and 13 other releases

According to the Computer Love Songfacts, the subject matter of this song, looking for romance via the computer, was a remarkable prediction of the future as it was written many years before online dating. In the early 1980s computers were large, impersonal, incommunicative things and not many could have foreseen their use as a vehicle for communicating with others.

    The sadness in the melody is completely lost in Talk. This version is far better.

    And triple post but I want to make myself much clearer. Well yeah. It's too stupid to hate a band who sampled a melody from another for their song. Go hate Madonna for sampling "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!" or Pitbull/Aguilera crew for sampling (?) "Take On Me" if you're like that.

    Regards "that hating thing is stupid" I mean that because of that reason it's stupid to hate Coldplay.

    Oh c'mon... hating someone because they "sampled" a melody with permission is like hating Weird 'Al' Yankovic who used to ask permissions for the parodies (for example "Born This Way" - "Perform This Way"). Call me a weirdo but I like Coldplay, and the hating thing here is stupid.

    I think that we can all agree that both Kraftwerk and Coldplay are shit.

    TV Screen" - Back then many home computers connected to a regular TV set. Hence the lyric.

    Well, I had no idea about the Coldplay song, so I had to give it a listen. As soon as Chris Martin's voice came in I had to turn it off.
