"I don't know what to do, I need a rendezvous"

A man who was listening to music through the YouTube channel on his computer, inadvertently stumbled upon a song by the German electronic synthesizer pioneers, Kraftwerk, and now can't get the tune out of his head!

The song, 'Computer Love' (1981), was a big hit for the group after their earlier single, 'The Model', stamped synth music into the collective psyche of music fans worldwide.

Moys Kenwood, 55, had been listening to 'The Bridge' by Thomas Leer and Robert Rental, but the algorithms employed by YouTube are so clever, and so good at their job, that they correctly predicted that Kenwood would enjoy listening to the Kraftwerk song.

Indeed, not only did he enjoy listening to it, he could not stop humming the synth parts to himself all day long. Even when he went to bed, they swirled around his conscious mind, and even permeated his subconscious mind, becoming part of a dream in which he was the only spectator at a Kraftwerk concert in Düsseldorf, and the only sounds that could be heard, were the looping, soothing, sweeping, swirling, caressing waves of the haunting melody that is 'Computer Love'.

When his alarm clock went off at 5:30am, he could hear a synthesizer playing somewhere in his head, and a voice saying:

"I don't know what to do, I need a rendezvous."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
