Song Review – Informatik’s Built for Pleasure

I have come to the conclusion that Informatik’s Built for Pleasure is a song about the movie Weird Science.

The lyrics, “She’s the finest thing I’ve ever known/From her head down to her toes/Shape of things to come; she’s a whole new breed/One of flesh and blood, but part technology” are clearly about this perfect fantasy girl the characters created in the 1985 movie.

Da5id and Tyler put themselves in the shoes of Gary and Wyatt. In fact, Tyler does bear a nearly uncanny resemblance to Anthony Michael Hall.

Da5id also laments the fact that he cannot be quite as cool as Robert Downey Jr., who, in the movie, plays Ian. This becomes clear with the lyric, “When my day is over and I want to leave the world behind.” His days spent not being Robert Downey Jr. are full of regret, and he wishes to say goodbye to the world. He deals with these feelings by turning on his robot chick.

It’s definitely not the best song on the album, but it’s catchy. It’s the kind of thing that I can see a bunch of shirtless guys in hard hats dancing to.

A lonely kid in the woods of New England

Growing up in the woods of New England meant Tyler Newman spent a lot of time alone. “Well, I was born in Florida, but really grew up in New England,” Tyler says of his early years. “Not much to say about it other than, ‘you can’t underestimate the value of physical isolation, when it comes to creativity.’”

Tyler had to learn how to entertain himself, “you pretty much had to make your own fun.”
