Are 'Friends' Electric?

Are 'Friends' Electric? by Tubeway Army was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, June 30, 1979 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This song is about man living among robots - how you can lock yourself in a dark room away from any other human. Numan has Asperger's Syndrome, and many of this songs deal with themes of technology and isolation. "Are Friends Electric?" represented a new sound for Numan: stark alien synthesizer-driven melodies, with the almost-orchestral sound of the Minimoog and other analog synths, which had faulty "ladder filters" that accidentally produced a richer fuller sound than other synths of the time.
