Everyday is Like Sunday, Except for Blue Monday and Ruby Tuesday, and...Well, Friday I'm in Love: Weekly Mix #26

My very first weekly mix was one entitled When the Humans Are Away, The Robots Play, and the time has come, my friends, for another robot-inflected mix. It was very fun the first time round, and I know at least one reader out there highly enjoyed it. Oddly enough, the only actual link to robots in that mix was the fact Robots in Disguise featured - this time, I made a more concerted effort to include songs with robots in the titles without compromising the sound and flow of the mix (this rule ultimately made me discard using the song Sister Robot by The Trons, a band that is actually composed of robots - the song just didn't really fit with the feel of the rest of the songs).

In the midst of the ridiculous fun, I included robot classic Mr. Roboto from the notorious Styx and another track from Flight of the Conchords, which, like last week's track, is quite a ribtickler ("The humans are dead/We used poisonous gases/And we poisoned their asses"). Don't worry, I'll resist the urge to include an appropriate track from Flight of the Conchords in every mix. This mix is called More Than Meets the Ear.
