Since I mentioned him a little earlier, check out Herbie Hancock’s “Rockit” which appears on his Future Shock album. Along with Michael Jackson, Hancock was one of the few black artists that were played on MTV until about 1987 or so. Also of note, the song was one of the first major pop singles to have turntablist Grandmixer DST scratch and cut.
Much like Kraftwerk’s work, this track manages to sound anachronistic as it sounds hopefully futuristic and kind of dated. Still, the song managed to be both inspirational and memorable.
