I was 11 years old when this song first came out - it was a mind-blowing futuristic song at the time. Maybe you would have had to have been a kid/pre-teen/teen at the time this song first hit the airwaves "get the song's hype". - IDK. BUT I loved it then I love it now. Ahead of it's time. Just read science & technology news of today - we're getting closer to Mr. Roboto's in our world.
