  1. without a doubt it’s Radioactivity.

  2. Autobahn, 8 min version.

  3. RadioActivity,TDF, why one just let the jams roll!!!! I love the german lyric versions just because!!!

  4. Das model

  5. “Radioactivity (Remix)” from The Mix in 1991. I’ve loved them ever since I was 8 years old in 1984, listening to Computer World (1981) and Radio-Activity (1975) to ad nauseam.

  6. I’ll go with Trans Europe Express. Partially because that’s the tune (I think) that got afrika bambaataa into Kraftwerk and thus helped spawn electro! Planet Rock!!!

  7. The Robots. Doop doop do doop.

  8. Radioactivity. Such a classic.

    I’ve never really thought of Kraftwerk as Krautrock. Kraut, yes. Rock? Not so much. Can is the ultimate Krautrock band.

  9. Tour de France!

  10. “Radioaktivitaet” deflowered me in the 70s. Been on the Kraut since…
    Obscure poser entry – Contemporary second: “Autobahn” acoustic by Fink.

    This shindig is going to rule BTW….

  11. Computer World

  12. Man Machine, machine…

  13. hands down radioactivity is off the chain

  14. computer love!

  15. “Pocket Calculator” Computer World
    -It reminds me of a high school teacher, I had.

  16. I am a Model
    and I’m looking good.

  17. Autobahn, I second.

  18. N U M B E R S!
    Reminds me of doing complex equations w a sharpened pencil and my ti-82 – bobbing my head to the song in my head. 1st period algebra ii circa de 95…….

  19. So many to choose from.

    I’ll go with the popular choice, Radioactivity.

  20. Computer love.

    Compyoooterr loove, I call this numbah…

    <3

  21. Pocket Calculator

  22. oh oh oh!!!

    Ruckzuck!!! Ruckzuck!!! Ruckzuck!!!

    imagine my surprise when I realized that was Kraftwerk!!!!! And I had been watching “Newtons Apple” on PBS since I was a kid and loved, loved the theme song! I almost fainted when I put two and two together.

    I fucked a German to be closer to Kraftwerk, god damn it!!!!!

    Pick ME!!!!!!!
