Lab Track: Make a Circuit with Me

While the subgenre of science- and skepticism-themed music might be small, there are definitely examples to be found. Everybody loves using evolution, astronomy, and religion as metaphors in their music, after all.

Electrical engineering, however, is not such a popular theme, which is why I love this track that Anne submitted. The Polecats, a London rockabilly band active in the 1970s and still touring today (which also, Google tells me, shares its name with various and adorable ferret-looking mammals) popularized this little ditty, which is full of electricity terms, those misty silhouettes so popular in that era’s music videos, and people-robots. Enjoy!

Make a Circuit with Me
The Polecats

A sweet romance is not for me
I need electricity
If you wanna make me flip
Hit me with a micro chip

I’ll be a diode, cathode, electrode
Overload, generator, oscillator
Make a circuit with me

Just plug in and go-go-go
I’ll be your human dynamo
Signals in my power cord
Impulse on my circuit board

I’m an AC/DC man
You can read my circuit diagram
I feed on electric jolts
I need fifty-thousand volts

A sweet romance is not for me
I really need electricity
If you wanna make me flip
Come on and hit me with a micro chip

I’m an AC/DC man
You can read my circuit diagram
I feed on electric jolts
I need fifty-thousand volts
