LYRICS

Have you seen him, he's from the future
He's got a really big computer
And he uses it, uses it every day
And he uses it, uses it every way
What's he use it for? You know I'm not that sure
'Cos it uses future technology
But this I do know, It's a hit with the ladies


And He'll twist you round.
You know he'll turn your head
Can't fight this urge to turn towards him
Oh no no.

He's the ultra modern operator
Makes our machines look like calculator
YEAH!
He's adding, subtracting
He's also dividing us, us, us
And he puts himself in between.


And He'll twist you round.
You know he'll turn your head
Can't fight this urge to turn towards him
Oh no no.

And He'll twist you round.
You know he'll turn your head
Can't fight this urge to turn towards him
Oh no no.

I don't know what to do any more
He says he knows what we're gonna do before we do it
Using information from his database
He says I'm gonna fall in love with him
But I'm telling you I'm not in love with him
I'm not feeling, feeling anything
I'm not feeling, feeling anything.


And He'll twist you round.
You know he'll turn your head
Can't fight this urge to turn towards him
Oh no no.

And He'll twist you round.
You know he'll turn your head
Can't fight this urge to turn towards him
Oh no no.

I really like this song.

En algunas partes la voz del tipo se parece a la de Gustavo Cerati.

His helmet reminds me of an Acura NSX.

I think this a song about what the internet was and is becoming (with "big data" and Google and whatnot knowing everything about you).

"What's he use it for? You know I'm not that sure 'Cos it uses future technology"
virtually nobody understands targeted advertising and the way silicon valley collects and uses data.
search engines are black magic even to programmers and web developers, and neural networks and machine learning might as well be "future technology"

"But this I do know, It's a hit with the ladies"
no-one is too worried about it though because it powers so many useful and cool things
why worry about how it works, new technology is sexy

"He's adding, subtracting
He's also dividing us, us, us"
There is something unnoticed going on.
It isn't just technology.

"And he puts himself in between."
most social media platforms moderate content
most communication platforms collect information on users.

"He says he knows what we're gonna do before we do it
Using information from his database"
If you have enough data on enough people you can predict a lot about them.
This is the whole idea of targeted advertising.

"He says I'm gonna fall in love with him
But I'm telling you I'm not in love with him"
This seems a little vague, but perhaps it alludes to the idea that people are told that society is going to keep going in the direction it is going (integrating their technology into their lives and having everything on the cloud, everything personalized and automatic) and that it will be great. But it doesn't seem that great, it makes you uneasy. Perhaps it also refers to the presumption that we couldn't go back, that we are dependant.

"I'm not feeling, feeling anything"
I think this line literally refers to all feelings being dullened by obsession with social media and trying to keep up with technology

Each verse of this song gets progressively less optimistic about "computer guy," the tone goes from excited, to concerned, to hopeless and empty.
As the verses change the refrain takes on a differn't connotation.

"And He'll twist you round.
You know he'll turn your head
Can't fight this urge to turn towards him
Oh no no."

At the beginning:
It'll knock your socks off.
It's new and exciting, It'll get your attention.
You can't help but check it out.
Oh no you couldn't

Then by the end:
It will twist you out of shape, confuse you, dizzy you
You can't look away, it hypnotizes you
You can't help but structure your life around it
oh no!

The second and third lines are interesting.
"he" turns your head. That's his action, not yours. He makes you look. But then it is you who chooses to fall in line. You feel and urge to do so.

Maybe that urge is social pressure, maybe it is just because it's so convenient. But allow yourself to give in, willingly and knowingly.
The song is about how the internet is changing our society, in a way that seems to take away autonomy or even free will, being aware of that (uncomfortable with it, dejected even), but still not doing anything to stop it or even "save yourself" because you are drawn in like a moth to a flame.

Why can't you fight the urge?
Maybe it's because "he knows what we're gonna do before we do it"

Btw, I don't actually think the internet or social media or advertising is destroying society, nor do I think Google is trying to mind control us. I just think that it can feel that way sometimes, and this song capture's that emotion very well.

After all these years, this song is still my favorite in terms of all the Savlonic music. IMO, it has the best animation style and video direction, the equalization and song fits really well with the male vocalist (which I feel is challenged on other songs), and the song is just simply spectacularly made, complete, and very catchy. The Rosco album is my second favorite, the synthwave elements were well done in that album, coupled with electro pop. But otherwise, I am still looking forward to similar music as in Computer Guy. Neon was a good album too, but I feel Savlonic fits better with synthwave than it does with electro pop.

Ha ha ha, I can't believe they let that one get past the censors. In case you didn't the joke, "computer" is a metaphor for "penis".
