SciFi SongFest, Songs 226-228

Three songs about evil robots:

226. Gary Numan & Tubeway Army, “Down in the Park” (1979):

227. Flaming Lips, “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. 1” (2002):

228. Garbage, “The World Is Not Enough” (1999):

This song isn’t science-fiction, but the video is.

What’s amazing about the song itself, though, is how it manages simultaneously to be utterly a James-Bond-style song and yet utterly a Garbage-style song. It would not have occurred to me to ask Garbage to do a James Bond song, but damn.
