This led to a brief debate as to whether 'Iron Man' is about a robot or not. I say that he is, at least for the purposes of a songwriting contest, because he's made of steel and goes around killing all humans and all. Chris wasn't so sure, though, noting that while he was turned to steel (in the great magnetic field) it wasn't like he was manufactured; if you disassembled him you wouldn't find circuit boards or anything.
(Later, I thought of They Might Be Giant's 'Robot Parade', which I really should have thought of immediately.)
So what do you think? Should 'Iron Man' be considered a song about robots or not? Also, are there other songs about robots (other than ones I have written and the three mentioned above) out there?
Let the debate begin!
