    This song got me into Super Furry Animals! (it's all thanks to Nick rapping in German)

    this is like the folk music of happy robots. Trams! and of course, the robots rap in German, which is the most efficient language, and naturally, the human language adopted by robots.

    A wonderful song... (Trams) It's a secular day and it will be even better tomorrow. (Trams) It's the first day of the intergrated transport hub, (Trams) Let us celebrate this monumental progress. (Trams) We have reduced emmisions by 75%

    sorry, that sounded mean, just helping out :) this song is ace, ranks up there with rings around the world, do or die and frisbee. don't you people know that a song isn't cool without a german rap in it?

    This song gets better with more listens, I wasn't keen the first time but it's grown on me.
